In Search of Closure to Conflicts, Epidemics and Wars

From Syria, Iraq and Libya to Egypt, Sudan, Central Africa Republic, Yemen and Burkina Faso, to Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, from Venezuela, Mexico, Guyana to Hong Kong, Ukraine, Georgia to Armenia, Azerbaijan, China, Myanmar, Thailand, Kosovo and Serbia; some conflict or emerging conflict, war or an epidemic is evident.

The growing number of nations involved in conflict or nearing a conflict of some kind or another, appears limitless. And while some conflicts might appear to end, that particular event re-emerges or some other conflict breaks out. The fragile systems maintaining human social and economic growth cannot develop at an optimum pace against the friction from so many events.

Henceforth, a short- run surge, with some limited economic impacts could be accorded now to bring closure to some current events including the Syrian war, the extremism of the ISIL and the Ebola out break in Africa. With rapid closure of these events, a measure of stability could return to Global affairs. In contrast, if these events continue long-run, the social and economic impacts could be more severely devastating to Global security. 

The grumblings that were present at the start of November are still evident; more will come, so some must end. The Kosovo-Serbia relationship appears strained, so does the Armenia-Azerbaijan affair, so does the Palestinian-Israeli relationship. The Taliban is still active in Afghanistan. China is lurking on the waters on Asia. Russia prowls  close to Moldova and in Ukraine. Sectarian and authoritarian matters loom over Africa as Ebola declines and yet rages in some nations. Austerity measures and right wing groups seek to trouble Europe. And Bashar al Assad still sits in Damascus. 

Closure of some of these events is merited. The displaced people and children of Syria have been held hostage for far too long. At least one conflict should end by the dawn of 2015.
