Are we overdue a massive war? 'Long peace' since the end of WWII could simply be a blip in history, mathematician claims
Since 1945 there have been far fewer wars between countries in the world
Colorado statistician looked at whether this 'long peace' is just a statistical blip
He analysed the frequency and size of major conflicts between 1823 and 2003
He found conflicts as large as the WII would occur on average every 205 years
This peace would have to endure for a further 100-150 years before humans will have changed our ways for good
