40% Decline in Terrorism Deaths since 2001
Original post made by Good News Worldwide, Midtown, on May 23, 2008
Above is a link to The Human Security Project Report, just released. This is a group that was housed in the Human Security Centre, Liu Institute for Global Issues, University of British Columbia from February 2002 to May 2007 but is now housed in the School for International Studies, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver.
The first Human Security Report in 2005 documented a dramatic, but largely unknown, decline in the number of wars, genocides and human rights abuse over the prior decade.
This one, May 21, 2008 documents that fatalities from terrorism have declined by some 40 percent, while the loose-knit terror network associated with Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda has suffered a dramatic collapse in popular support throughout the Muslim world...since 2001.
Enjoy the link. Timely release, given that this is Memorial Day weekend, honoring all those in the military who have died fighting terrorism in the last 6 years, and all those in the military who have died fighting for freedom for in our country. Thanks Canada!
