What about the War on Terror and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict? --Tydaj 23:32, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I removed War on terrorism. For more info check out Talk:List_of_wars also for Israeli-Palestinian Conflict --Kulkuri 21:11, 23 May 2005 (UTC)


The War on Terrorism is not limited to Afghanistan. It should be listed separately. Copperchair 07:37, 31 July 2005 (UTC)

I am removing Imia/Kardak, as it hardly meets any reasonable definition of a war.

Gujarat Violence[edit]

The violence in Gujarat can more accurately be termed as riots. The term "war" as used for the other conflicts on this page doesn't suit it. Consequently, I have removed the link to it from this page.

Who the hell erased the Rwanda genocide that occured in 1994? Put it back.Fclass 19:15, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Ignore my previous post. I found it. My bad.Fclass 19:17, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Brazilian Gang War[edit]

I propose the removal of this entry, as it is not related to a "war", but rather gang violence and riots. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Fabiojung (talkcontribs) 17:08, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

I removed the Brazilian Gang War from the list. EZ1234 (talk) 08:06, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Sortable tables do not work correctly[edit]

Note that the tables can't be sorted correctly by date, because the first word of the date column is the day, not the year. They should be arranged by yyyy:mm:dd: to work correctly. The same problem occurs in List of wars 1945-1989 and List of wars 2003-current. Rayhou (talk) 09:35, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Multiple amendments[edit]

User:Jersay seem to be making extensive changes to this page without sources, basing their decisions on personal perception. I alone don't feel qualified to make any kind of definitive claim about what should be here; can some friendly editors help, please? AlexTiefling (talk) 18:00, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Merge with 1945-1989 and change to 1999[edit]

This, the 2003-current, ongoing, and 1945-1989 article are a mess. A table for 1990-1999 appears in the 1945-1989 article, for example. Consensus needs to be reached on how to display them. I suggest the following:

  • Change the 1945-1989 article to 1945-1999 and merge all relevant aspects of this article into that one.
  • Change the 2003-current article to 2000-current, reformat it so that the table matches the other list articles, and remove all currently unresolved conflicts to the ongoing conflicts article.

--CPAScott (talk) 16:45, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

I agree with the proposed merge. This 12-year period seems arbitrary. Placing the split at the end of the 1990s sounds a bit better. Dimadick (talk) 08:03, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Agree but until 2001, when the century ended--TheFEARgod (Ч) 11:14, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
  • No, 1999/2000 seems a more natural dividing point. 惑乱 Wakuran (talk) 23:06, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Why not make the lists 1945-1992, to show wars that were during and later a result of the Cold War/Breakup of the Soviet Union, and then 1992-current for everything Post-Cold War? Casual T .30-06 (talk) 18:42, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

What Do You Think?[edit]

Should War on Terror and Operation Enduring Freedom in the Phillipines and the Horn of Africa be added? It seems a little redundant. B-Machine (talk) 14:25, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

While the "War on Terror" has led to actual wars, itself it is not a war. Rather, the word "war" is being used in a metaphorical sense, as in "War on Drugs". I would therefore remove "War on Terror" from this list.  Cs32en Talk to me  08:58, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
Operation Enduring Freedom – Horn of Africa seems to be redundant to War in Somalia (2006–2009), and the 2002 incident is not, as far as I can see, considered to be the start of a war, so the 2002 year figure may be misleading.  Cs32en Talk to me  09:03, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm thinking about deleting War on Terror, Operation Enduring Freedom - Horn of Africa, and Operation Enduring Freedom - Phillipines because they are redundant. I'd like for people vote on it. B-Machine (talk) 14:42, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
