A good summary of the Ukrainian situation...

A good summary of the Ukrainian situation...  If that's something you're not well-informed about, this will give you a quick course.  There are three general conflicts that I'm worried about these days.  If I arbitrarily pick 10 as the magnitude of my concern, I'd rate these as:
10.  Russia's play for territory in Eastern Europe (including Ukraine and the Baltics).

4.  Iran's play for power in the Middle East, and in particular its threats against Israel and the U.S.

2.  Militant Islamic fundamentalists.
I can't help but note that my ratings are almost exactly the inverse of press coverage (and the closely correlated general American awareness) in the U.S...
