THE LEVEL of violence in Iraq is still high (the last major attack was today, in which the glorious militants have sent to heaven 35 children ¡Allah Akhbar!), but take a good looks at this extremely interesting graphic appearing on this article in the New York Times, detailing the geographical distribution of the attacks over map of Iraq.

Yes, there's been at least one terrorism act in each province during the last 30 days, but the pattern is very clear, and coincident with what prime minister Allawi told during his recent trip to the US: the violence is concentrated in some areas of the country, and the rest is virtually free of terrorism.
