More peace

Is it embarrassing for an IR type to get figures from the SIPRI (Stockholm Int'l Peace Research Institute) filtered through The Atlantic? If so, count me as embarrassed. The magazine's current issue has a "change map" showing how various kinds of things have changed since 2000. One category: number of major armed conflicts worldwide. In 2000: 25. In 2007: 14.
