    Northern Ireland was resolved when both sides were exhausted by the violence. It appears the same may be in the process of happening in many areas in eastern Ukraine (Crimea is a done deal as a Russian puppet separate from Ukraine). Palestine and Israel aren’t close to being exhausted yet so resolution is not in the cards. All three sides in Iraq are not exhausted yet so that has a way to go, although I think the Kurdish area as a separate state is almost a complete reality – even Turkey is not making loud noises about it.

    A beautiful Ritholtz TV moment! Way to swiftly deflate the hype and pseudo concern. The media and politicians hype every opportunity to escalate warfare to the point where they lose all credibility. Most TV guests feel obliged to add oxygen to the flames out of misplaced patriotism (or creating an image), but you completely doused the fire! If only more people refused to suffer fools, foolish suggestions, and foolish wars packaged as well-intentioned endeavors.
