I ran across this at Politically Incorrect.
This is better viewed if you switch to “Theatre Mode” and watch it a few times. Doing that will allow you to see the implications of the symbols at the top of the video; they are used to indicate the number of fatalities. Especially notice the increase in tempo and size of the attacks as it moves forward in time…
Also notice that Australia never lights up at all…
The creator of this video, Milan R. Vuckovic, has an explanation of this work further down on the You Tube page: [edited for grammar, formatting, spelling, and one emphasis at the end -D ]
Important Note: Due to the large amount of data used, there are likely to be mistakes (exact chronology, location, casualties etc.). This video should serve as an approximation.
(Especially in the messy parts.)
Typical issue would be: GTD had sometimes the “at least” casualties or it has split one terrorist incident into many (Istanbul Bombings of 2003, Casablanca bombings of 2003). This is why some incidents are not accurately represented on the map. It’s a tiny fraction though.
Also, I like to point out that I used different definitions of terrorism regarding the area and time of attacks.
About the copy at the end:
Historians debate about whether terrorist groups are destined to fail or not. Some say that authentic terrorist organizations achieve partial goals only. Many regard John Brown (approx. 150 years ago) as the most successful terrorist till this day.
But you might read the essays: “How Successful Is Terrorism?” (James M. Lutz and Brenda J. Lutz) and “Why Terrorism Does Not Work” (M. Abrahms) and you will find out what this message is exactly about: Deterring potential future terrorism by education.
[Perhaps our readers would be willing to research for links to those essays he mentions.]
Mr.Vuckovic has also managed to attract far more comments that are actually interesting. That’s relatively rare in videos of this nature.
The views on this video now exceed a half-million. It was published in late November of this year and is only being spread in the manner used here: by word-of-mouth. Or if the MSM has been talking about it, we missed it.
His website is here. Lots of interesting videos. I particularly recommend the two-parter on Gender Roles.
NOTE: I’d like to see his rationale behind the claim that we can “deter” potential future terrorism by education:
|1.||Whom would he “educate”? I mean who would be the “target groups”?|
|2.||What would be the curriculum?
Given the root meaning of ‘educare’ – to lead out of doubt – and given that both sides (the victims of the terrorists and the perpetrators) don’t have much doubt to be led out of, a full explication of his solution to terrorism would be most interesting.
If you’re interested in commenting at the source, Mr. Vuckovic has been in the comments responding to people on that YouTube page.
