Crossing Jordan

It must really suck to be Jordan right about now...

To the east of Jordan there is a full-blown civil war going on in Iraq, to the west the Palestinians are getting froggy towards one another, and Syria is about to plunge Lebanon into yet another civil war on Jordan's northern border. The only point of stability is Jordan's southern border, except al Qaeda's true enemy is the Saudi monarchy so something could jump off there at any time, especially during a time of regional turmoil. Add to that the fact that Iran is approaching the point of being able to produce nuclear weapons and the sure fact that Israel will never allow that to happen and Jordanian airspace just became insecure - if they try to protect their airspace then Israel will destroy what little air force they have, but if they do not defend their airspace then there will be hell to pay in the Arab League.

Sucks to be Jordan right about now.

when you look at the history of the region...and how it was broken up and seperated in white colonialists fashion...honestly? In the words of Malcolm X, the chickens are coming home to roost.

It sure does suck.
