That's an excellent point, alison, and it would be interesting to see the figures broken down to show 'deaths of Westerners'. I suspect that the vast majority of the deaths are of Muslims killed by Muslims, and that's another matter. Still, and I hesitate to mention the Nazis in this connection, while Germany was 'only invading the Ruhr etc, the future Allies didn't act.

I also agree that the chances of any individual in the West being a victim of this is very remote, but the precautions Western governments are obliged to take, by themselves, are a big enough drain on resources and time to be a concern.

So while we should not be alarmed for our personal safety, the issue as a whole is significant for its current costs and for the possible effects on our future way of life.
