It Is Just About Time....1.01.10.....Money is running out.........
Dec. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Shiite rebels fighting the Yemeni national army and Saudi forces on Yemen’s northwest border said today they had taken control of a Saudi military post.
The rebels, known as Houthis after the family of its leaders, said in an e-mailed statement they also seized all the military equipment at the al-Jabir border post late yesterday.
Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest oil exporter, launched an offensive with aerial strikes and artillery bombardments on Houthi border bases after the rebels moved into its territories Nov. 3.
BRUSSELS (AFP) – European leaders backed Friday new sanctions against Iran, warning that Tehran's refusal to negotiate over its nuclear programme must be met with a tough response.
As they met in Brussels, US Defense Secretary Robert Gates said he expected "significant" new measures imposed if the Islamic republic fails to live up to commitments, and accused it of "stiffing the international community".
"Europe's position is very clear, we need sanctions, this decision has been taken," French President Nicolas Sarkozy told reporters, after two days of talks among the EU's 27 leaders.
"Something has to be done, we can't leave things as they are," he added.
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said: "Iran has got to be persuaded it is necessary to respond to what the world is saying."
Colombia has been building up forces along its eastern border with Venezuela following weeks of provocations by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who has threatened war against Colombia for a recent agreement that allows U.S. troops to use Colombia's main military bases.
A new army division of 15,000 men has been formed to protect the 94,000-square-mile frontier region, according to a communique released by Colombia's defense ministry late last month.
