Wars & rumors of war

Foreign Policy online has an article they published before the new year signaling a number of hotspots around the world that are on the brink of war, or could easily be pushed that way.
Across the globe today, you'll find almost three dozen raging conflicts, from the valleys of Afghanistan to the jungles of the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the streets of Kashmir. But what are the next crises that might erupt in 2011? Here are a few worrisome spots that make our list. 
  1. Côte d'Ivoire
  2. Colombia
  3. Zimbabwe
  4. Iraq
  5. Venezuela
  6. Sudan
  7. Mexico
  8. Guatemala
  9. Haiti
  10. Tajikistan
  11. Pakistan
  12. Somalia
  13. Lebanon
  14. Nigeria
  15. Guinea
  16. Democratic Republic of the Congo
Thankful for the relative peace in which we dwell (despite living in a secular state), but also praying that the Prince of peace will come and bring His kingdom and set everything right.
