There are no shortages of wars these days.
At any given time there are something like 30 conflicts globally.
But many of them are either so sporadic, like the African wars, or have been going on so long, like the South American wars, that nobody who isn't affected really cares very much.
At pretty much any chosen time 1/2 of the African continent is at war, same for the Middle East. Wars in South America, like the one that has been going on for 45 years in Colombia, have broken down into something closer to narco terrorism. The goals of ruling countries have been replaced with goals of making money.
Of course there are also cold wars, Korea, and wars that one side sees as finished, China / Tibet / Taiwan.
Don't forget the "other" conflicts like Russia / Chechen.
All in all there is no shortage of dying going on. But if Israel and the Palestine's are fighting this week who cares? We know that they will be fighting next week.
