Since 1995, there have been about 3500 Americans killed in terror attacks globally (source).
Since 2000, there have been about 400000 Americans killed by gun violence domestically. (source)
Meanwhile, estimates vary, but the "war on terror" is thought to be responsible for up to 1 million deaths globally, most of them civilians.
Figuring out the real problem here is left as an exercise for the reader (hint: it's not Islam)
The war on terror is indeed bogus, and many of these terrorist threats are exaggerated at best. Need an excuse to invade a country? Call them terrorists!
