In war, there are no winners - only losers

However, according to something called the Human Security Report, there has been a marked decline in war over the last two decades, meaning there are a lot less losers out there. Apparently there are way fewer of both inter-state and civil wars than there used to be during the Cold War. The BBC have also ran an article about it.

You're less out of date than you think; the Human Security Report was updated with a Human Security Brief at the end of last year which looked at the deaths indirectly caused by war.
