Yes, you're partially right. The reason for the odd concentration of terrorist incidents in the US isn't because there's more terrorism, in fact it's because we're hyper-alert to it now and a lot of stuff that's irrelevant gets reported and put on the map. Whereas in a lot of other countries, stuff that should be there isn't because it doesn't get reported. Either because the governments involved don't want it known, and maybe because there's no survivors to report it. I know I'd much rather be here than there.
