Another potential match

Reader comment on item: Cyprus on the World Stage
in response to reader comment: Turks in Cyprus and the real reason for the Greek coup

The Middle East has been a volatile mix for decades. Maybe this is just me, but does it seem like we have more than the usual potential 'matches' right now? All of the unrest or 'Arab Spring' on top of everything else. We have Iran possibly engaged in an act of war against Saudi Arabia and the U.S. Not that they have not been covertly fighting us for decades, but the openness of this move is a very real concern.

It seems to me that the Middle East is very near a brink of some major conflict. All it nees now is something to bring it all together, a 'match' if you will. Not that this is unusual, but it just seems like the entire Middle East is very 'touch and go' right now.
