Abstract : Everybod has statistics. Somebody else mentioned there were 1,500-plus terrorist acts against Americans over a period of years. In preparation for this talk I asked our people to do a run for me on terrorism worldwide for the calendar year 1983. They gave me separate sheets this thick on 569 terrorist incidents worldwide in the calendar year 1983: kidnappings, barricades, hostage occupation, letter bombings, explosive bombings, things like Beirut, Ireland, crimes against U.S. business both at home and abroad, missile attacks, takeovers, assassinations, sabotage, break-ins, conspiracy, sniping.
