A Google search on "chance of being killed in a terrorist attack" produces many links which reach the same conclusion: your chances of being killed or injured in a terrorist attack outside of a war zone are about 1 in 80,000. As one writer noted, this is about the same chance as being killed by an asteroid.

The minuscule danger posed by terrorism to people outside of war zones, the enormous expenditures incurred by many countries in the War on Terror, and the fear people seem to have suggest a number of things. One, terrorism works. One or two events every two or three years and the terrorists' enemies quake in fear, drain their treasuries, and infringe their citizens' rights. Two, politicians, militaries, and corporations profit handsomely from scarring the wits out of people, all the while knowing the enemy is a very minor, usually absent, one.
Given the above, I'd welcome hearing the views of Voloconvites on this subject. My view? The War on Terror and terrorists are bogey men, deliberately exploited to fleece people of their money, rights, and votes.
The generals in the War on Terror (Bush, Blair, Howard, Harper, and all the political wannabes) are the real terrorists, doing far more harm to people, economies, and rights than actual terrorists.
