Since January 2014, armed conflicts and war have killed more than 214,000 people worldwide.

  • Approximately one third of all victims - about 77,000 people - were claimed in the war in Syria alone during the period. 
  • An additional 40,000 casualties are attributable to a conflict minimally discussed by Western media - the civil war that erupted in December 2013 in South Sudan, the world's youngest country.
  • The war in Ukraine, which began in 2014, had already taken at least 4,843 lives.

Some ongoing conflicts last for decades. The combined death toll of the conflicts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo since the 1970s - including the LRA insurgency, Katanga insurgency, and the Kivu conflict - has surpassed 400,000. In Burma (Myaynmar), internal conflict since 1948 has added another 200,000 to the worldwide death toll. Meanwhile, the nearly decade long Mexicon drug wars is estimated to claim 5,000-10,000 victims annually.

In the event of a real crisis, however, the necessary approval of all 28 NATO members to deploy the VJTF would potentially lengthen the response time. Overall, military expenditures of NATO...

FSU Countries: Military Strength Magnifies Value of NATO

The Global Firepower database published earlier this year provides an interesting perspective on the relative military strength of the former-Soviet Union (FSU) member states bordering Russia as compared to Russia. The contrast is so sharp that any of the FSU countries would almost certainly be unable to defend themselves from Russian military advancement without the direct involvement of NATO or other allied forces.  The Baltic States, Georgia, and Ukraine combined spend fifteen times less on defense than does Russia. While military expenditures offer only a simplistic cross-country comparison - obscuring differences such as procurement...

In the US case, the deterioration...
