Mideast stability?

Reporters and editors are always “raising questions,” which is journalese for “We are speculating….” Here’s one in a sub-headline that should go down as a classic. The Boston Globe page one, top story, May 9, 2018, with the head a quote: ‘A horrible one-sided deal.’ The subhead: “Trump pulls out of Iran nuclear agreement, rattling US allies and raising questions on Mideast stability.”

Mideast stability? I wonder where the Globe editors have been for the last half-century?
