Dark clouds?

Mood of the day

On the news today:

- China has passed a bill allowing it to take military intervention in Taiwan in case they continue to want independence

- Indonesia has sent military ships to an oil-rich region of its coast that it disputes with Malaysia. Malaysian military ships are already in the area

- Syria has withdrawn troops up to the border with Lebanon but the US is calling for complete withdrawal now to comply with UN resolutions.

- George Bush has just appointed an anti-UN official as the US ambassador to the United Nations.

Is it me being paranoid, or are things looking a bit (more) unstable at the moment?
