Iraq Terror Death Toll at 5,500+ in Single Year

Which makes 2013 the worst year in terms of terror attacks since 9/11, possibly ever:

Attacks in Iraq killed 10 people on Tuesday, including eight security personnel, officials said, the latest casualties in a country-wide spike in violence that the government has failed to stem.

Iraq is mired its worst violence since 2008, a surge in bloodshed that has killed more than 5,500 people this year despite several major military operations and tightened security measures.

And by worst year I don't mean in Iraq, I mean in the world. In Syria it's even worse.

But, you know, Hopenchange!
