Certainly a very much filtered (read artificial) report. Incomplete in all senses, failed 2 highlight the conflicts like the one's inSomalia & Much if North-western Africa, whci gets arms n ammunition not just from Us or Russia, but from Very Large of the EUROPEAN Countries as well. Article is anti towards the communst countries. Totally inappropriate title for the video. Certainly not what should be expected from the ECONOMIST.

This video confuses freedom with the right to vote. How do you decide which of the following nations is more free? Nation A: you can choose your leader, but you can't be out at night because of the massive gang and gun violence. You also cannot choose between any of the utilities or groceries you buy because there is only one choice. Nation B: you cannot choose your leader, but it's totally safe to go out anytime, and you have access to most foods and quite a few luxuries if you're middle class or higher.

The best offense is a good defense. and it's called a nuclear weapon.
Conveniently missed to mention that the USA has been the largest aggressor since the beginning of the last century and would remain so in the foreseeable future. Who is solely and directly responsible for civilian killings in Afghanistan and Iraq and to a large extent in Syria? There is one straight and simple answer that any reasonable person not falling to western propagandist media would know.
plok ijuh (10 days ago)
Did you consider the Allied intervention in Europe against the nazis an American aggression. If so I welcome more of it!
There would be far far less civilian deaths in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq had US not intervened for its ulterior motives - keep reigning as world's top MAFIA and keep military industrial complex thriving! ISIS wouldn't exist without IRAQ war. Taliban wouldn't be bombing fellow Muslims if there was no " WAR ON TERROR." Syria would far less complicated without US intervention.
1234coolman (10 days ago)
that would be the taliban in afghanistan, terrorist groups in iraq that detonate bombs in every place of there cities and ISIS, along with Russia and Syria that cause deaths in Syria. Maybe you should educate yourself.
IRO IS KING (11 days ago)
Very wrong, civilian killed by the US is far lower than that of Saudi Arabia and Russia and Syrain regime. Let me remind you that each bomb that the US or its allies uses costs around $200k. So they will make sure it is used on the right target

What is actually happening is deterrence. No one wants to start a war they cant win, thusly having a big military and nukes helps prevent war. Also global trade is a big deal in keeping the peace

+Capras12 put whatever label you want on it, it all comes down to individual social behavior and group dynamics. People want things and other people want those things too, how they resolve this problem is completely up to them.
Problem I always have with the measure of war being in decline of course everything is going to be seen as a decline after the biggest war in human history.

maybe you should go look at the statistics yourself and see that the tread goes father back than that.
Elite 35 FAZ (11 days ago)
The truth has been told at the end. "We should never take peace for granted". The people who believe the world will become a fairyland and everyone will live happily ever after then they should learn from the human histories that human always seek war and crime against each other. It's not always only about other country or religion but also war can happen in between same communities or tribal groups which are known as civil war. Men are always just too cruel to embrace peace.

Capras12 (9 days ago)
+Youman 2201 the reason why I'm not going to tell you why you are wrong is because I already know exactly what you are going to say. You are a conspiracy theorist, you don't list to facts or realist so no matter what I say you will deny it. This it's a waste of my time. If you give up your fictitious beliefs in conspiracy theories I'll be happy to tell you, but knowing your type, that will never happen. All you are doing is dodging the topic. Provide any proof of any of your claims and I will address it. So far you have done nothing but spew idoicy and ad hominem. You are the one who keep trying to derail the conversation. so do you want to defend your beliefs or are you a coward?
Youman 2201 (9 days ago)

Capras12 (9 days ago)
+Youman 2201 first off, different buildings are built in different way (duh) so they arnt going to all burn the same. Also the grenfell building didn't have a plane crash into it with a ton of jet fuel. You also have answered any of my questions I asked before, and if the only argument you can make is about my sure of the word your, than thats pathetic, and not an argument. Plus my IQ which you don't know, doesn't change the facts I have presented, nice try at an ad hominem, very mature. An no, there were no bombs in the WTC and if there is, provide proof. You have yet to provide any proof for any claim you have made Including your first one. And I refuse to try to explain the basic logic behind why your original comment is bullshit to a conspiracy theorist. So untill the 9-11 this is resolved, that's the topic, and don't try to dodge it.

Russia did meddle in Ukraine, Georgia. It's now openly having "talks" with the Taliban and allegedly arming and funding them to replace US/NATO in Afghanistan, just like it's almost done in the Middle East.

chf gbp (11 days ago)
Not sure of how the stats r compiled. But clearly war zones and war ravaged civilian population (and displaced refugees) have both exapnded greatly these last 18 years. Out of sight surely should not mean out of mind. It s offensive to wave misleading statistics in a self congratualting way in front of the refugees and civilians of Afghanistan, syria, iraq, libya, Yemen, and kashmir. Wait, there is a theme here....
Capras12 (10 days ago)
+chf gbp My problem is you are unfairly criticizing this for presenting misinformation when it is not. Yes the number of IDPs and refuges has jumped a lot in the last 30 so years, is due to more factors than just combat, and the fact that most wars now are civil or insurgencies. Also there is the simple fact that we are keeping track of IDPs now more than ever before so the past data is flawed at best. And it might shock you, but battle related deaths includes civilians! And its pretty pathetic that you resort to insulting my character rather than having a shred of maturity.
chf gbp (10 days ago)
+Capras12 : why r u triggered so much?
chf gbp (10 days ago)
+Capras12 : over the course of human history. Yes. But that s not saying anything new. What Matters to us IS the current trend, i.e say last 30 years? War related refugee number certainly sored in recent years. The video said itself that the pattern of new wars IS that causualties r overwhelmingly civilian. I.e. combat deaths IS no longer capturing the real picture. I suggested a list of measures as potentially relevant. What is your problem?
Capras12 (11 days ago)
+chf gbp you must be truly stupid to not understand that their is a strong connection between battle deaths and IDPs this is all well recorded and studied information. If you doubt it, do your own reaseach before you reached a biased and completely inaccurate/ignorant opinion on the matter
Capras12 (11 days ago)
None of the statistics presented are false. If you just look at history you can clearly see a trend towards peace. These stats are complied by their parties unrealted to the waring nation. IDPs are well documented as well. Their is no doubt that violence has declined

​+Fernando Valdez I never said that most media is conservative don't put words in my mouth, that's dishonest. And no, conservative media is not mostly near the truth, it depends on the news sources itself, exactly the same with liberal media, each side has good and bad media. But from your assumptions of liberals, I have a hard time believing that you even try to understand their side as you are too caught up in the us VS them mentality.
Fernando Valdez (11 days ago)
Capras12. Since when was the majority of the media conservative? What conservative media says is mostly near the truth.
Capras12 (11 days ago)
+Fernando Valdez conservatisum has nothing to do with it. Its normal people vs pissy hippies. If you ask any regular liberal, they will tell you that war is an important tool. Just because you media says all the liberals are like that doesn't mean that's true. Instead of assuming people's believes because that's what you are told, you should go and actually talk to them. People like you are the reason for the political division.

+Master Set Ossetia isn't a UN mandated country and is not internationally recognised. Georgia, just like Serbia, was invaded whether you like it or not. UN peacekeepers are only their to ensure Russia doesn't invade anymore territory, just like in Cyprus, or anymore violence to occur. Russia once again annexed/puppeted the territory of another Soverign state. It isnt evil, it's power. You can't just disrespect the Sovereign right of a nation and hold a referendum AFTER you invaded. Russian forces evicted UKRANIAN troops from their own military bases. No shot happened because Ukraine would undoubtedly lose. Donbas and Lugansk are both states that funnily enough have large amounts of "Russian volunteers" fighting. If the Baltic states weren't part of NATO they would have been invaded because they have a "high Russian population".

So Russia retaliated top make Georgia stop genocide. That's it. Just use logic. Russia CRUSHED Geoprgia. But no territory was taken. No repparations. Noting. So what the point for Russia to attack? Because it EVIL? Don't be silly. As of Cremia - there was no single shot there. Our troops were there by the contract with Ukrain. Cremia pepole made a referendum and returned to Russia peacefully and rightfully. Not a SINGLE shot. And as of Donbas and Lugansk - there is brutal civil war there now. Why? Because there is NO Russian troops there. If they where it would be ended just like with Georgia. But Putin chose not to start war. He is more cautious than Medvedev who was a president in 2008.

+Master Set Well mad. You must be going against Putin because even he says there are Russian troops in Crimea 🤔 weird. Yes, im sure Georgia. A tiny nation with a tiny army would start a war with its most powerful neighbour 🙄 The USA at least has accountability from her populace. In Russia they support Putin like he's a Tsar.

The world is already peaceful, so please don't reverse the trend I think that if the world continues its path, then war will become less and less frequent, but we have to keep going

I'm surprised that the Economist failed to mention US vs Iran. US may again be duped into doing the dirty work for Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Capras12 (11 days ago)
Iran is not much of a threat at the moment. Also what 'dirty work' would we be duped into doing

Most of the deaths are thanks to USA...

+Louison Boucher Ok where to start. So yes, we unfortunately supply Saudi Arabia with weapons, but we cant control what they do with them, and unfortunately geopolitics is complicated so you can just stop doing that all of a sudden. Also, have you ever even seen which weapons the terrorists use? I would bet less than a percent is american made and the vast majority of those weapons have been stolen or captured from fallen troops.
Louison Boucher (11 days ago)
+Capras12 Indirectly terrorists receive weapons from the US, UK, France... as these countries provide Saudi Arabia. It has been proved that some sunnites terrorists groups got some back up from Saudi Arabia in order to fight extremists shiites groups (supported by Iran). Besides that, Saudi Arabia is also using those weapons in the Yemen's civil war, but this time without going through terrorists groups. So yes America and all weapons sellers are involved in modern wars even though it's 5000 km away. Point is : Would these wars be softer without a sofisticated weapons supply ? Not frankly sure.
Capras12 (11 days ago)
+Josh Topham the us does not supply terrorists in any modern conflict. The biggest supplier for them is Iran, saudi Arabia and maybe (probably unintentionally) Russia and China. Why would the US give arms to the people we are fighting?
Bob Faggot (11 days ago)
Capras12 who gives that Saudis missiles and provides them heli- carriers to deploy their jets from so that they could bomb Syria, Iraq and Yemen. The U.S is response for most of the war deaths since WW2

I don't want a war. My continent break through 2 of the most horrific war in less than a century. I want to keep leaving peacefully with my German neighbour. Drink some sangria on the Spain terrace of Barcelona. Have a few words with my Brits cousin... I want to leave in peace in my Europe. #hymne à la joie.

Hey guys, I need a speech for "Is war a necessary evil" can you guys give some points etc?
Yanis Makhlouf (11 days ago)
We should all try to avoid war but sometimes diplomacy fails or some threats need to be dealt with on the battlefield. We are sometimes dragged into deadly conflict. We should be glad of the relative "peace" of our world and do our best to preserve and improve it.
Capras12 (11 days ago)
I would never call war evil. War is a tool used by the good and the evil.

War's opportunity cost is basically infinite, it always puts us back and destroys technological and economic advancement.
Alex Shackelford (11 days ago)
these proxy wars are very symbolic, its like standing up to bullying. just one time standing up to a bully is all it takes then they get the message, adn teh world needs to be reminded democracy will stand up for itself..and dictators around the world are always testing that becuase of mans ambition
Manuele Mambelli (11 days ago)
Is war an evil? - Yes, it is. Is it necessary? - No, it isn't. Wars may result in huge social and cultural changes and these may be good. The two world wars resulted in the advancement of democracy and in the affirmation of human rights. However, we don't know for sure whether those advancements would have still occurred without the sacrifice of 40 million lives. Someone might even argue that wars help to keep under control the world population when it gets too large, but that too can be achieved through demographic control policies.

ALI PALA you are mistaken but let me guess you been paid from erdogun regime or you have no idea where you live. ERDAL MART ADALI Russia hasn’t invaded formally to those regions but turkey has formally invaded and holds ground to Syria because of the Kurds, to Cyprus and to Greece - Imia among others and in general turkey has war across all its borders and within its borders. Guys you have not even internet but only erdogan’s news channels to be informed from. I feel sorry for you!!!

+vks_ - that's actually what I wrote: it's imaginable = I can imagine it happening = It's quite possible. And "neglect to defend" would be a consequence of "shifting military potentials".
vks_ (11 days ago)
+Piotr B I wouldnt discount them all triggering at the same time. Unlikely of course, but if the power of the USA is off handling one enemy. It may neglect to defend its allies defending against another.

Democracy is the key to eternal peace and prosperity. Geopolitical players must step up to prevent the Red tide from the east. Until a more capable government takes hold in America, Britain or Germany, I’d nominate France to lead the free world to victory. They have a liberal and prosperous nation with a strong foreign presence and generally very good 3rd world relations, unlike the US, as well as UN veto power. This is hard for me, as a Brit, to say, but...VIVA LA FRANCE!

Who wants 7 trillion dollars a year to fund the United Nations to create one world communist state? The excuse is to save the planet from cheap energy. Who supports globalism? Who wants universities to oppress press free speech? I can tell you it isn't strong men.
