Situation FUBAR Update

Guess which country is now the second-most failed state in the world?

Iraq has emerged as the world's second most unstable country, behind Sudan, more than four years after President George W. Bush ordered the U.S. invasion to topple Saddam Hussein, according to a survey released on Monday.

The 2007 Failed States Index, produced by Foreign Policy magazine and the Fund for Peace, said Iraq suffered a third straight year of deterioration in 2006 with diminished results across a range of social, economic, political and military indicators. Iraq ranked fourth last year.

Okay, how long will it be before the Kristolhammer juggernaut turns up on Faux to complain about the America-haters at Foreign Policy who aren't reporting on the good news coming out of Iraq?
