To read the MSM, the only war worth reporting is America’s “illegal” attack on Iraq. The actual case, as documented by GlobalSecurity.org is very different.
The United Nations defines “major wars” as military conflicts inflicting 1,000 battlefield deaths per year. In 1965, there were 10 major wars under way. The millennium ended with much of the world consumed in armed conflict or cultivating an uncertain peace. At the end of 2003, there were 15 Major Wars under way, with at least 20 “lesser” conflicts ongoing.
The list of international disputes is much longer.
