The world is not a peaceful place

April 7, 2011 § 2 Comments

As if you didn’t already know that.

Still, if you get caught up in Conflict History, a very interesting, google-maps-based website that puts all the wars known to mankind (from 4000 BC to now, sourced from Wikipedia) on the map, you can’t help but be amazed by the amount of conflict that went on at any point in time. You might know about the big ones, you know about the current ones, but, believe me, there has never been a peaceful moment on this planet.

This, for example, was the situation when I was born:conflict in 1977

And it is not getting any better (2007-2010):conflict in 2010
