one connection, fFrom what we might call "The U.S." to "Western
Europe."  Interesting, yes, that does give two countries 4
connections.  Which seems like it might make the case just a little

have that strong link between each other.  But then again, of those 4
connections, half of them go to other continents -- and, are actually
the only paths between those continents!  So those countries with 4
links are prone to being volatile, unstable territory.  Possibly.
