    Afghan officials say at least 90 Islamic State fighters were killed when the US dropped the "mother of all bombs" in Afghanistan - although IS has denied suffering any casualties. IS issued a statement through its propaganda agency Amaq, saying: "Security source to Amaq agency denies any dead or wounded from yesterday's American strike in Nangarhar using a GBU-43/B." The bombing left villagers terrified on both sides of the Afghan-Pakistani border. In the Afghan village of Achin, just a few miles from where the bomb hit, Palstar Khan said: "Last night's bomb was really huge, when it dropped, everywhere, it...

    Israel will fight its next war “with full force,” Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Tuesday, adding that the Israeli army will not stop fighting the next conflict until its enemy surrenders completely. “There is no confrontation with half of the power or a quarter of the power, only at full force,” Liberman said. “You don’t stop in the middle – this is the instruction at the moment for the IDF. The next confrontation will be with full force until the other side raises a white flag. It must be a war with the most forceful possible profile,” the defense minister...

    UN Ambassador-designate Nikki Haley's confirmation testimony will seriously question the US financial commitment to the world body, according to CNN as reported in The Hill. Gov. Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) will suggest that the U.S. reconsider its 22 percent contribution to the U.N.’s annual budget, CNN reported. “Are we getting what we pay for?” Haley is expected to ask, according to a copy of her opening statement obtained by the network. Haley will highlight U.N. successes including food and health programs during her testimony, CNN said, as well as its weapons monitoring and some of its peacekeeping operations. The South Carolina...

  • 3,000 years ago, it ruled the Mideast, now blown to pieces

    The chilly December wind whipped rain across the strewn wreckage of a city that, nearly 3,000 years ago, ruled almost the entire Middle East. Rivulets of water ran through the dirt, washing away chunks of ancient stone. The city of Nimrud in northern Iraq is in pieces, victim of the Islamic State group's fervor to erase history. The remains of its palaces and temples, once lined in brilliant reliefs of gods and kings, have been blown up. The statues of winged bulls that once guarded the site are hacked to bits. Its towering ziggurat, or step pyramid, has been bulldozed.

    Angela Merkel has called for a ban on the burka "wherever possible" in Germany and said there can be no repeat of last year's migrant crisis in a speech launching her bid for another two-year term as Chancellor. "German law takes precedence over sharia," Mrs Merkel said during a speech at her party's annual two-day congress in the western city of Essen. "The full face veil should be banned, wherever legally possible," she added, to prolonged applause. That is expected to mean a ban on burkas in public life including for civil servants, schools, universities and while driving - described...

    Chelsea Clinton weighed in on Donald Trump invoking her father’s “transgressions” this week, and Juanita Broaddrick responded by sending her a message on Twitter. Trump boasted after the debate that he could have gone there on Bill Clinton, but didn’t want to with his daughter in the room. Well, she responded to that in an interview with Cosmopolitan after the debate. Clinton said, “It’s a distraction from his inability to talk about what’s actually at stake in this election and to offer concrete, comprehensive proposals about the economy, or our public school system, or debt-free college, or keeping our country...
