It's not just the Middle East getting ready to blow, it's the Far East also:
China and Japan have had a long-running territorial dispute over some a handful of islands. Over the weekend what had been a simmering issue turned into a real problem with Chinese rising up and doing something extraordinary: They are demanding WAR with Japan.
These are not just people waving signs either. They are burning Japanese-linked stores and factories, from sushi places to car dealers. Automobile owners are being ejected from their vehicles on a forcible basis and their cars destroyed. And while I'm sure some official agitation is involved this appears to have caught a number of people by surprise, including officials from Japan and the United States.
Behind this, once again, is rapidly-deteriorating economic "progress" in China. Once again rapidly rising inflation in a nation that has a per-capita GDP of about $4,000, where what we would consider small changes in food and energy cost literally put people into a situation where they are now hungry, can severely-destabilize a society.

There are stranger things afoot than you or I can imagine.
