The World on Fire

3 Quarks Daily has a list of some of the items in the news recently. Israel on the verge of war with Hezbollah (in Lebanon) and Hamas (in Gaza). Afghanistan falling apart. Iraq on the brink of civil war. Iran and North Korea determined to acquire nuclear capability (and delivery systems, in the case of NK). Tensions flare between India and Pakistan...

So much for the theory that the war in Iraq would "drain the swamps" where violence breeds.
