14,500

That’s how many people died at the hands of terrorists in 2005.

Terrorists killed more than 14,500 people in 11,000 attacks across the globe last year, the U.S. State Department said in its annual report on terrorism.

Fifty-six of those killed were Americans, the report said. Three thousand of the deaths were attributable to 360 suicide bombings. There were 25,000 people wounded and 35,000 people kidnapped, the report said.

Have you let your guard down?

The al-Qaeda terrorist network remains a threat, with plans to attack the U.S. in a manner to match “or even surpass the terror of 9/11,” Henry Crumpton, the U.S. State Department’s anti-terrorism chief said.

Wake up people and get your priorities straight.

I don’t think it’s a matter of “if” but “when”. Yet, Democrats and wimpy Republicans are trying to drag Americans back to a pre-9/11 mindset by doing things like stripping the government of the tools they need to fight terrorism. Aided by the media, Americans are taking the bait. While we’re sitting around whining about gas prices and marching in the streets in favor of criminals who are in our country illegally, the terrorists continue to plan the next attack.
