Peace Breaking Out All Over « Politics As Usual »

According to the article linked, ...war itself is in decline, peace researchers report.

In fact, the number killed in battle has fallen to its lowest point in the post-World War II period, dipping below 20,000 a year by one measure. Peacemaking missions, meantime, are growing in number.

So, yeah: Bush's policy of pre-emption and fraudulent coalitions have resulted in less chaos and more peace. Some might say that by serving notice to certain warlike nations and leaders that providing a safe haven for terrorists, exporting terrorism, and even merely slaughtering your own people might result in being invaded and overthrown, Bush has sent a message to all rogue nations across the globe, one that goes in a different direction from the liberals' idea of "We'll Take You to [Internation] Court." And the message he sent is obviously more effective.

But myself, I blame Bush's tax cuts.
