Bush - the legacy

From the early nineties until 2002 the number of armed conflicts declined and since then have held steady according to the Uppsala (Sweden) University Department of Peace and Conflict Research. Their annual report "States in Armed Conflict" notes that most of the current conflicts are "intractable" and the absence of peace negotiations, especially in the Middle East, is notable. But don't worry. Captain Codpiece still has time to start one or two more before he leaves office so that he can exit with an upward trend line.
