Conflict is a part of life; it is a part of human history. A study reported in The Canadian Army Journal regarding the frequency of human conflicts came up with this interesting statistic: Since 3600 B.C. the world has only known 292 years of peace. During this period there have been 14,531 wars, large and small, in which 3,640,000,000 people have been killed.
