World Conflicts

There are so many world conflicts(40+?), that it is hard to keep up with the latest information about all of them. I've been looking for reliable, teacher/student websites with background information about all the current conflicts and have found a few that would be helpful teacher resources:
http://www.proquestk12.com/productinfo/cg_world_conflicts.shtml


The site is a pay for use site, but has a free trial signup. This
site is the most comprehensive with information about world conflicts! It includes teacher video training, conflict background materials, lesson plans, data sheets,
newsletters, student/parent notes/and much more.

Information about countries, maps, flags, current status of conflicts
