Terror Attacks Less Coordinated But More Groups

Fewer coordinated attacks.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The deadly, coordinated terror strikes in London five years ago - the 7/7 transit attacks - reflect emerging global trends, reports the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START), based at the University of Maryland.

These trends include the rise in the number of new terror groups and a continued drop in the number of coordinated attacks, which are usually far more lethal. The report is based on START's unclassified Global Terrorism Database, the most comprehensive of its kind in the world.

Lots of entrepreneurial start-ups in terrorism. Seems like reason to be bullish on the future growth of terrorism.

NEW PERPETRATORS: The report notes the rising number of new terror organizations world wide - on average 41 new organizations per year since 2000. The number of new organizations increased each year since 2004.

"This emergence of new groups, with no past history of terrorist attacks, is a discernible global trend in this decade," the START report says. "This trend is similar to peaks evident in the late-1980s - an era of high levels of terrorist activity."

Most start-ups fail. But with so many start-ups some are bound to recruit some talent and to come up with innovations that make highly lethal attacks easier to carry out.

We could take steps to protect ourselves. But it is hard to protect yourself from something if you can't even name what it is.

Meanwhile the US fights 2 wars that do nothing to make American people safer.

Yes, agree.
In fact that quote sounds a lot like Ron Paul. Ron Paul is so great, he makes so much sense and he is so right.
More Americans should listen to that guiding voice. Perhaps one day Americans will understand that the only productive step is a real change in foreign policy and rhetoric -I mean if the national wish now is safety-

I like Geral Celente too, specially when he gets intense.

I believe that terrorism has advanced incredibly, has several reasons thanks, among them is the lack of organization of defense in a country, because on occasions it gives way to terror attacks by the lack of security of a place.
another is disagreement on some people algungrupo changing trends and only go on the attack happens to disagree to this.
but yes the most important problem is given by the hatred that have from one place to another as also occurs for power.
