Foreign Policy has a stunning and disturbing pictorial on the armed conflicts going on around the globe.
The call it “Planet War”. You’ll forgive me an editorial comment, but the planet is more peaceful than it has ever been. Many of the conflicts they portray are sporadic or do not involve actual fighting (the Korean face-off, for example). What’s incredible about the pictorial is that, up until recently, this was the norm for humanity. Now, there are few enough conflicts that a blog can do a pictorial piece covering all of them in depth.
