The Wars That Never Ended
While a war typically ends with a peace treaty of some sort, some conflicts haven't reached that point decades after they've stopped fighting.By Jake Godin | November 14, 2015
Usually, wars or other conflicts end with a formal treaty. But sometimes, both sides just kind of stop fighting. That leads to wars like these, which are technically still ongoing.
The North-South Korean conflict is probably the most well known “war without an end.” Technically it did end in 1953 when a ceasefire was signed.
But a subsequent peace treaty was never signed, effectively prolonging the conflict until, well...today.
