- US embassies attacked, in many cases with numerous casualties, inEgyptLibyaTunisia, Morocco, Sudan, LebanonIndia, Balgadesh, Indonesia, and others.
- Japan “appropriating” China-contested islands provoking a firestorm of retaliation including demands for “war with Japan
- The Japanese ambassador to China dying mysteriously
- Netanyahu telling Meet the Press Iran will have a nuke in six-seven months and must be stopped beforehand
- Warships from more than 25 countries, including the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, launching a military exercise in the Straits of Hormuz
- A third US aircraft – the CVN-74 Stennis – carrier is en route to Iran with an ETA of about 10 days

Actually the kind of killings in the past age of kings and more frequent wars for conquest and horrendous death penalties of those captured sometimes does make people say that the world is much better. The immediate surrounding does seem safer than if we were in an older era.
