Of Nations, Conflicts, Tensions and Rogues of Instability

North Korea -  its erratic, unpredictable and immature leader,  represents the single greatest threat to global security. The fact that such an out-of-sync leader  possesses nuclear capability, is frightfully alarming. Past thoughts that China was the sole communicator and perhaps the sole suitor with the rogue regime in North Korea,  is not true anymore. The relationship between China and North Korea has chilled since the youthful leader of the secretive country executed his uncle last year. The uncle was perhaps China's main and sole upper contact within its cross border neighbor. To emphasize the irrational behavior of North Korea and to underscore how China's influence over it has waned, the country in violation of UN resolution, launched missiles into the water off its coast as China's President Xi Jinping  is visiting South Korea. Japan is emerging as perhaps the best suitor to the renegade regime across the Sea of Japan.

The tensions created by China flexing its rising military power across the East and South China Seas, represents the second greatest threat to global security. One miscalculation on the seas could trigger a conflict that would involve much of the world as a large swath of trade and commerce would become effected.

The war in Syria, the conflict in Iraq and ongoing concerns in Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine, all contribute to instability in the Middle East which could spread extremism beyond the sands of the region to worldwide cities.

Pro-Russian separatists violence within Ukraine continue to spread instability throughout Eastern and Central Europe. Nations in the region are effected by the conflict because they fear greater Russian interference so many are girding themselves to prevent direct Russian invasion.

Nigeria, Central African Republic, South Sudan, Yemen and Somalia, all add to global instability because of ongoing events involving sectarian conflicts and extremism.

Thailand, Myanmar, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicaragua, are definite areas worth monitoring for future escalations or advancements of dictatorship conflicts.
