Jordan turns out to be just as dangerous as Afghanistan

Two U.S. State Department contractors were killed after a Jordanian policeman opened fire Monday at a police training center east of Amman, a U.S. official and a Jordanian government spokesman tell Fox News.
The shooter also killed a Jordanian and a South African, according to Jordan's government. Police shot and killed the gunman, who was dressed in a military uniform.
Two additional U.S. trainers and at least three other Jordanians were reported hurt.
The shooting came 10 years to the day after a string of bombings killed a total of 60 people at three hotels in Amman. It's not clear whether Monday's attack was related, but it cast a troubling light on Jordan's image as an island of relative stability in a turbulent region.
I'm sure it's already a cesspool. Don't be surprised if they already have a lot of honor murders going on there, and anti-semitism is undoubtably rampant there too. This just sends an important message that "stability" is just a facade at best.
