More Chaos on the Horizon?

With Israel attempting to bring down the Lebanese government while lashing out at Iran for allegedly assisting Hezbolla, and East Asian countries taking unexpected positions towards North Korea (China voting for a UN resolution as South Korea opposes Japan's tough stance), there's plenty of room for additional chaos within the current world system--a fact that demonstrates the fundamental instability of a world order defined by narrow national interests (which are in turn defined primarily by wealthy interests).

Unfortunatley I see the whole Middle East in flames because of this... and it was all going *so* well before this latest incident...

Yes. As America's favorite proxy (Israel) attempts to bring down a democracy that Shrub and Rice were just months ago praising as part of the new democratic order.
