Well, Myanmar is actually going to establish a ceasefire with their rebels for the first time in decades. That's good. Turkey is finally coming to terms with their Kurdish dissidents and thereby establishing long term guarantees. Also good. The 47 people killed in a car-bombing in Baghdad, that was bad. Guiana is awaiting the final vote in their national elections, this is the first time they will have a stable democratic government since, well, forever. That's great. But the Boko Haram in Guiana's neighboring Nigeria is still on a killing spree. That's terrible.
That's about it on the big news, if you want opinions on the smaller stuff we could be here all day. =/
