This piece addresses what appears to be the rebirth of the Cold War between the United States and Russia, as evidenced by a number of escalatory/provocative acts and the various Cold War-era behaviors of both states.

In Brief: Comparing the Number of Terror Attacks per Year per Region

I was writing an academic piece on how the apparent modern prevalence of terrorism in Western societies is actually not what it seems -- neither in terms of the strict number of attacks nor the pervasive feeling of imminent/constant terrorism -- but I couldn't get it to work.  After three substantial rewrites, I've given up on the piece itself.

However, I think the data is worth considering on its own merits, so I'm presenting it here in chart form.  All data is accurate through CY2015 and courtesy of the Global Terrorism Database from START and UMD.
