Peace on Earth - Increasing.

Strategy Page does, what the newspapers don't,  the annual round up of all wars on earth and finds again that they are decreasing.  The short version:

The Great Nuclear Truce continues.  Most current wars are basically uprisings against police states or feudal societies...   Many small wars are led by radicals preaching failed dogmas (Islamic conservatism, Maoism and other forms of radical socialism), that still resonate among people who don't know about the dismal track records of these creeds. Iran has replaced some of the lost Soviet terrorist support effort. That keeps Hezbollah, Hamas, and a few smaller groups going, and that's it. Terrorists in general miss the Soviets, who really knew how to treat bad boys right.

Deaths in Mexico justify calling that a war.The intro is followed with a nation by nation summary.
