State of Alert in Lebanon; New Sanctions For Iran

Flashpoints, Middle East: These are breaking news items late on February 6, 2010 (as of 21:00 EST). Trouble Brewing in Lebanon: - Hezbollah has raised its state of alert in Lebanon following the recent war of words between Israeli and Syrian officials, according to a report by the Beirut correspondent of Saudi daily Al-Okaz. The report cites growing concerns in Lebanon that Israel is either planning to attack Lebanon, or that tensions in the region will result in an Israeli operation there... - US Threatens Iran with Fresh Sanctions (Note: Is anybody else getting a feeling of deja vu? I half expect Colin Powell to give a slide show in a few weeks at the UN to explain why we need to invade Iran.) Leave a Comment * Conservative T-Shirts * Follow CNB on Twitter * RSS Feed
