Wasn't the US 4th on that list and Britain 10th? Or was that an other list?

This list is made by myself from what I know. Maybe you could make a list of your own to show whether we have similar information.

He was referring to a list of "most likely targets". It's a near certainty that the US and UK will be targetted. Whether those attacks will succeed, or whether they will even be in the US or UK at all is an entirely different matter. US and UK civilians may be targetted in other countries. On the other hand, Indonesia may well be a terrorism hotspot, and Pakistan as well, but neither nation will be a target. Sub-groups within those nations might be targets, like the Pakistani Christians, but not the nation as a whole. So, whether a nations experiences terrorism on its soil or whether it is a target or a hot spot are three different questions.
