And in related news, Kim Jung Un warns that if his regime falls, instability will spread across the region. There will be little to stop the spread of food and light bulbs.

Reports of his demise have been highly over rated.

Get rid of him like the neocons want, and you’ll find out.

I don’t know about instability, but Christians in the Middle east are doomed.

What do you want us to do about it? Putting down Al Qaeda and the Mooztard Brotherhood is your job. Not ours,

"...instability will spread across the region"

If what they have now is 'stable' I am waiting to see what unstable looks like. Or maybe I don't want to see.

I doubt there'll be a power vacuum. Jabhat al Nusra (aka Al Qaeda in Syria) is winning the big engagements.

I could care less about Muslims killing Muslims. Just stay away from Israel with your blood thirsty, primitive ideology. Islam has caused too many problems lately and needs to be terminated.

That’s bad, because that region has been characterized by stable behavior for centuries. /s

The message arrived via Ouija board.

Thanks Berlin FReeper.

Well, just like hell, instability has many circles. There is a room for much more instability.

All of the most trusted, independent (honest) political news journalists said that Assad was dead. They’ve kept us informed about how North Korea and Iran made no progress toward developing nukes, about China’s complete economic collapses that have happened about every month since December, 2007, and about how the world is wealthier without manufacturing. If we can’t believe contemporary political speech, what can we believe?

I am no fan of Assad’s but he is right this time. Things will get much worse.
