India - Pakistan
Isreal- Palistine/Lebanon (Iran? Syria?)
Hearbreaking, frightening, infuriating.
What's wild about these conficts is that smaller groups bring these countries into war. Al Queda, Hezbola, Hamas-maybe a faction even of Hamas that may or may not answer to the elected officials.
And then there's the opposite angle. The governments are held accountable for what these groups within their borders do, but we individuals are held responsible for what our governments do, and we do have responsibilities of course, but I am sad that calling myself an American associates me with the frat boy in charge.
I hope we get a president in the US who is more equipped to deal with these volatile situations as things continue to heat up in the middle east.
Will technology moving away from oil make things better there by giving the outside forces less reasons to stick around or will it get worse as the resources start to dry up and there are less and less scraps to fight for?
