Do you want to play a game?

Much better than Risk

Well do you? You do? Well there are a couple we can play. We can play; "Who is blowing who to bits all over the world?", any guesses? Or, if you are up for it, we can play the bigger; "What the hell is going on?".

My other reader, yes there are two of you, so you are not alone, sent me a link to this site which is the tool we need to play.

The link is to a depressing page but one that is extremely useful for getting an overview of Global Terrorism and what is going on in the world. The site is GlobalIncidentMap.Com

The game is easy to play and it only takes a few minutes to learn. You will soon know how to find your way around the map and set the various search options. Don't forget to use your scroll key as the page is quite large with many choice selections.

Now set your search to just Bomb and Terrorist events and watch the little red explosion icons pop up over the map. A mouse over tells you who is blowing up who. Any guesses yet?

That is a brilliant site! God, I hope it becomes a beacon for the whole world.

I'm delighted to see that the latest hideous decision of our appeal court judges, to release five muslim terrorists, is displayed there as a "terrorist incident." Because that is exactly what it is!

Thanks Green Arrow, you've made my day.
