Submission + - The war in Afghanistan has lasted longer than 84% of all wars ever (ifweassume.com)

jradavenport writes: Based on over 1000 wars listed in Wikipedia with start/end dates, I found the median duration is just 2 years. Sorting them all by duration, we see that at 12.3 years (and counting), Afghanistan is longer than 84% of all wars in human history. Interestingly, the last year without a *recorded* war was 597AD!
