As Obama Foreign Policy Unravels, Deaths from Terrorism Skyrocket

The trend to contain the violence has been erased during the Obama years!

The annual report on peace and terrorism from the Institute for Economics and Peace is out. It's not good news:

Scope of terrorism grows worldwide. Full size image here.
Among the key findings:
  • 17,958 people were killed in terrorist attacks last year, that’s 61% more than the previous year.
  • 82% of all deaths from terrorist attack occur in just 5 countries: Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria and Syria.
  • Last year terrorism was dominated by four groups: the Taliban, Boko Haram, ISIL, and al Qa’ida.
I thought Obama had won the war on terror? Didn't he say so at least 32 times just since the Benghazi attack in 2012?

Most troubling is the sharp spike up. This chart from the Atlantic illustrates the point:

In June Obama declared"The world is less violent than it has ever been." Really?
