That’s not your racist pal, BTL, talking.
South Sudan tops the list of the world’s most fragile nations, while the United States is among the countries that have worsened the most over the past year, a new report says.
Fractious leadership, mass killings and ethnic violence contributed to South Sudan’s No. 1 position, said Fund For Peace, a Washington-based nonprofit that compiles the annual list.
Until this year, it referred to it as the list of failed states. Somalia had led the list for six years.
Iran led a pack of most-improved nations, with the report saying it had stabilized somewhat “after recent political and social turmoil.”
Some developed nations picked up dubious honors, too.
France was listed as the seventh-most-worsened country this year, “largely as a result of a political and economic malaise,” the group said.
It said the United States tied with Singapore and Thailand for eighth-most-worsened country. The top nation on that list was the Central African Republic, which is deep in a conflict involving widespread atrocities.
Eighth-most-worsened? Tied with Thailand? ObAmerica can’t even suck best!
So, what was our downfall? The wretched economy that deflated by 3% last quarter? The abuse of power evidenced by the IRS scandal, the Benghazi cover-up, and illegitimate recess appointments? The disgraceful treatment of our nation’s heros by the Veteran’s Administration? The reneging on our commitments in Iraq and Afghanistan? I could go on: we’re lucky there’s a South Sudan and a Somalia to keep us out of the cellar.
The U.S. made the list for various reasons, including the lack of bipartisanship in Congress and the partial government shutdown last year, the group said.
For which we thank the Almighty every day.
What do you expect from a group that praises Iran? I’d rather be the Central African Republic any day.
