No end appears in sight to the trials facing Syria, Iraq, Turkey, South Sudan, Ukraine and other places.
As a matter of fact, instead of most of these trials waning, some of them are exhibiting the characteristics of mutating events. And as a result, the life of some of these conflicts could be prolonged, thus inflicting greater harm upon already suffering populations.
Ukrainian complaints of amassing Russian troops at its borders are bothersome to the independence and sovereignty of Ukraine. Turkey's self inflicted woes from the policies and the ambitions of its leader, along with the deep push by its armed forces into Syria chasing the Kurds, are troubles to which there are no prescribed ends.
Peace and the respect of basic human rights will continue to mar credibility in South Sudan, while Iraq's attempt to define itself and to expunge the Islamic State(IS) from its territory, will not be known for sometime. In addition, Venezuela, Bangladesh, the Philippines and others could add new trials onto the world's arena.
That no end could be seen to today's trials is no excuse to stop working toward the stability of humanity. Concerted efforts to peace and stability should be doubled from the Middle East to Africa to the South China Sea and beyond.
