Italy is 200 miles away with a broken government.

Turkey is 200 miles away with an attempted assassination of it's Prime Minister.

Russia is a few hundred miles away with Putin's new role to be tested.

(complete with Muslim extremists and conveniently providing cover for a new Israeli "incursion" into Gaza. scheduled for the same day as Pakistan's elections. coincidence ? )
