One of my students sent me the above screenshot from the Foreign Policy failed states page. It’s still up at the time of writing, accompanied by the headline “Postcards from Hell” (never thought about Paris in this way) and a frightening image of an insurgent on a misty mountaintop. I am just wondering what Belgium has to do to make the cut.

And it is still up at the time of my writing. And, for the record, here is that image Erik mentions. . .
