"The latest Human Security Report, tracking trends in political violence, provides more good news: 'High-intensity wars, those that kill at least 1,000 people a year, have declined by 78 percent since 1988.' But hasn't the decline in mass killing by nation-states been matched by a rise in privatized violence by terrorist groups? Hardly." (01/04/11)
