Global Incident Map 

Jaunted.com drew my attention to an interesting Google-map mashup, displaying global terrorism and other suspicious events around the world. As noted in the Jaunted post, the continually updated map is quite addictive and not recommended for anyone suffering from paranoia.

There is however, an interesting conglomeration of events in the U.S.A., which has a visibly greater density of activity than anywhere else in the world. Worryingly, since the map is only concerned with terrorist-type incidents, the 85 people shot dead each day in the U.S and more than twice that number who suffer from gun injuries, are not usually counted. Measured against that statistic, travel to the so called 'trouble spots', might not be considered so hazardous.
