Is there peace anywhere? Or are there only pieces left to be picked up?

Hostages in The Taj, the Oberoi Trident and Nariman House in Mumbai. Gunfire and explosions at CST station, on roads and a hospital. The terror shows no signs of subsiding yet.

In Sri Lanka, fresh fights erupt between the government and the LTTE. More casualties. The situation hasn't calmed down in ages.

In DR Congo, historically animous Hutus and Tutsis are fighting again. God knows the numbers who will turn/die refugees.

Fresh attacks and fights in volatile Iraq. That place has not been peaceful in centuries!

Russia and Georgia are on a cold war over South Ossetia. When the cold war could get heated - who knows.

Iran conducted an exhibition of its nuclear prowess, while asserting that the technology is for civilian purposes only. Really? Who knows.

Inflation is terrrrrrrrrrribly high in Zimbabwe. The economy is still in shambles.

Kenya is still fighting over the botched elections.

American Economy is into recession.

Japan is already in recession - AGAIN.

And somewhere, Billy Joel sings....

We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it
