Sri Lanka again.
I blogged on this yesterday. Sri Lanka is sliding closer to open civil war again: this time, the Tamil Tigers attacked a Sri Lankan navy ship. Or, possibly, the navy attacked some rebel boats. Someone attacked someone, at any rate. For those keeping score, that's warfare or near-warfare in: Lebanon; Somalia; Sri Lanka; and Iraq. The first could easily spill into Israel and/or Syria, the second Ethiopia, and the fourth Iran (or Syria again, for that matter -- actually, you sort of have to feel for the Syrians, who have war brewing on their western and eastern borders). I don't have any solutions or trite observations, but I thought it worth noting how much of the world is about to start killing how much of the rest of the world.
