Why cease-fires have been so difficult in Gaza, Ukraine and the Central African Republic. And why they're crucial to Christian politics.

There seems to be a notion out there that peace will come if we can only talk about it more. That was the error of the Peace Movement from the 60s and 70s of the last century. (trust me...I was there). It has been my observance that conflict is the natural state of Man and the idea that we can create world peace out of dialogue is doomed to failure. Having said that, we certainly should continue to pursue peace with all our resources and put in any and all written or oral commitments to peace very strong accountability clauses (to whom is open to discussion). Without them, the initiatives are exercises in futility and we will be again disappointed by the results.
