Shia Rebels Overrun US Training Base in Yemen

Yemen is the ground zero where the forces of Islam's two great traditions -- Sunnism and Shi'ism -- collide over the hegemony of the Middle East. It also happens that whoever controls Yemen, controls shipping through the Red Sea. 


Drones Over Paris: 3 Al Jazeera Journos Arrested

Terror sympathizers are being emboldened by the lack of resolve of our leaders. Most would think that the arrest of 3 Al Jazeera journos (PR arm Muslim Brotherhood) for allegedly operating a drone from a park in Paris, is a hoax. But it's by no means certain they were the only ones conducting reconnaissance flights.

Paris drone sightings. 

Three Al-Jazeera journalists have been arrested for flying a drone in Paris after French capital was put on terror alert because remote control gadgets had been seen flying over landmarks.

  • The reporters were allegedly operating the drone from a suburban park.
  • There is no suggestion they were involved in a recent spate of sightings. Meaning, their may be others, also conducting test flights.
  • Unmanned aircraft were seen flying over tourist hotspots in French capital.
  • Appeared in 'at least' five locations in the city in early hours of Monday.
  • Security officials were unable to catch the operators of the drone aircraft.
  • Civilian drones are thought a serious security risk and are banned in Paris.
