Today in History, February 7th
The United States has escalated tensions with Iran once again, this after Obama called for a freeze of all Iranian assets held in the US. The executive order signed on Monday was in reaction to what the US is calling “deceptive practices” by Iran. Israel has also joined in by stepping up threats against Iran, and US Secretary Defense Leon Panetta has acknowledged Israel may attack Iran in the next 90 days. Vijay Prashad, director of International Studies at Trinity College, takes a deeper look on the escalated possibility of war.
U.S. soldier Bradley Manning, who is now awaiting a court martial trial on suspicion of passing data to whistleblower Wikileaks, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. An Icelandic Parliamentary group put him forward, saying he exposed corruption and war crimes.
