Iraq Rises Up Failed States Index

Iraq ranks as the world's second most unstable country, according to an annual index of failed states.
The report - compiled by the US Foreign Policy magazine and the US-based Fund for Peace think-tank - ranks nations according to their vulnerability.

Judged according to 12 criteria, including internal conflict and society breakdown, states range from the most failed, Sudan, to the least, Norway.

1. Sudan
2. Iraq
3. Somalia
4. Zimbabwe
5. Chad
6. Ivory Coast
7. D.R. Congo
8. Afghanistan
9. Guinea
10. Central African Republic

Wow the United States has seen some real success from its military actions in Iraq and Afghanistan but alas first place was not achieved. There is always next year.
