A cluster of alarming headlines in early May, appearing on the same page of newspaper, demonstrated that the pandemic paralyzing the globe has done little to dim the world’s ugly, bloody conflicts. The first New York Times headline announced: VENEZUELA CLAIMS TO FOIL AN ARMED INVASION BY SEA; 8 ARE KILLED AND 2 ARE SEIZED NEAR CARACAS.

Right below that story about a thuggish, socialist dictatorship, came a bulletin concerning the world’s most populous democracy confronting Islamic fanatics: SEVEN ARE KILLED IN BATTLE BETWEEN INDIAN ARMY AND MILITANTS IN KASHMIR.

Finally, another announcement described a dangerous exchange between one of America’s closest allies and perhaps the most brutal Communist regime on earth: SHOTS FIRED WITHIN ZONE SEPARATING TWO KOREAS, the bulletin said. These stories from remote frontiers demonstrate that even after we prevail, finally, over Covid-19, we must still find a way to confront the viruses of violent tyranny and perpetual conflict.
