Not quite. The shift is in different places and that is why it seems worse now than before. Places that were not targets are targets now because the enemy has changed. I don't gauge the quantity of "deaths" as an indicator at all. Far more is being done in counter terrorism than ever before thanks to a lot of technology and training because of all of those years of war, etc. The enemy is different don't follow the "normal" rules of engagement. We didn't have suicide bombings in western parts of the world to the extent that is now. I'm sure my middle east friends are sarcastically looking at us going "about time.. we've been going through this crap for years". Doesn't make it better or worse. It's just different.

Didn't see this until now. There's always some sort of terror or conflict going on at any given place in the world. It's unfortunate but true. For example, back in the 90s, the IRA (Irish terrorists! Who would have thought?!) bombed a lot of places in the UK etc. So long story short, there's always been s*** going on since the dawn of humanity, but social media makes it way worse.
