Just thought you'd like to know. . . .

. . . that one of the countries on the UN's list of the ten least stable nations in the world is a nuclear power.

The list (with the worst at number one):

1. Somalia
2. Sudan
3. Zimbabwe
4. Chad
5. Iraq
6. Democratic Republic of Congo
7. Afghanistan
8. Ivory Coast
9. Pakistan (the one with the bomb, if you didn't know)
10. Central African Republic

The other grim irony on this list is that the only three countries on this list outside of Africa have one thing in common: US military and/or political intervention since 2001.

Funny, that.
