Boko Haram More Deadly Than ISIS, With Massacres That Dwarf Paris Attacks And San Bernardino Shooting

While the Islamic State group, formerly known as either ISIL or ISIS, was reportedly responsible for 6,073 deaths in 2014, Nigeria’s homegrown Islamic terrorist organization was even more deadly, accounting for 6,644 fatalities, a 300 percent increase over the previous year. Together, the Islamic State group and Boko Haram caused 51 percent of all deaths related to claimed terrorist attacks worldwide last year, according to the Global Terrorism Index published by the Institute for Economics and Peace, a global think tank headquartered in Sydney. Northeastern Nigeria, the birthplace of Boko Haram, was the deadliest place to live in terms of terrorism.

      Thanks for that. I was going to pose that question and see if some old zipperhead knew what it was. I thought it looked kinda like a chieftain, but not quite right.

        It was a revised Centurion design, lighter by about 15 tons. And it used the Chieftain’s powerpack and running gear.
        Also known as the Vickers 37Ton Tank.

    As I recall there is some sort of conversion sheet: 1 white middle class Westerner = 10 Black Africans = 100 Black Africans killed by Muslims = 10 Sunnis killed by Shi’ites = 10 Shi’ites killed by Sunnis = 5 Muslims as collateral damage = 1 black criminal killed by white cop.
