Should conflicts last more than a lifetime even in this age?

Our world has seen plenty of conflicts in recorded history and probably many went un-recorded. Humans haven't been good at resolving conflicts. Most of these conflicts went on for such a long time that children born in such conflict-zones didn't know of a different world. In an earlier age, we could probably attribute such conflicts to lack of communication between, delays in communication etc. All these because technology was NOT ready as yet for facilitating talks between humans. In our current age of high-speed communication and technology to gain knowledge of current happenings around the world, why do we still have conflicts that seem to last a lifetime?

While I do agree miscommunication, or lack of communication, is a part of it. That is not the only part. There will aways be miscommunication and war. Humans are all different and see things different. This causes issues. All, I think many people forgive or say "This is over", but they have not truly moved on. I know people in American who won't marry certain people for stupid reasons. People have feelings and sometimes feelings cause things to carry on longer than they should.
