Hot Spots You May Not Have Heard of — But Soon Will!

The post-Cold War world seems now replete with hot wars — in Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Sudan, Yemen and far too many other places to list here; old and new independence movements dot the global landscape, populism and ethnic nationalism shake the established order, international terrorist organizations threaten everyone, while NATO and Russian armies growl at each other across eastern Europe’s borders.
But that’s not all. When the USSR crumbled in 1991 encouraging us to believe that we had “won” the Cold War, several obscure but crucial ‘hot spots’ were left stewing in a Pandora’s Box that may soon be opened. These could easily burst into flame and drive East & West against each other.
