Arguably today’s biggest international story is the 2010 FIFA World Cup draw. It’s always fund to suss out the political significance of these matchups.  For example, there seems to be a heavy dose of former colonies facing their colonizers.   In group C we have England-USA; Group G, Portugal-Brazil; and in Group H Spain-Honduras AND Spain-Chile.  Note also that reclusive North Korea will field a team in South Africa this year.
