Iranian Drone Shot Down In Israel In Feb. Held Explosives, Was Flying Bomb

This explains a lot, not just about Israelis counterattack to the Iranian drone entering her airspace in February, but also Israel’s attack on the Syrian T-4 military air base last week.

When Israel first conducted a counterstrike on Syrian air defense assets after the drone was shot down on 10 February 2018, the drone intrusion alone justified the strike on Syria. The Assad regime had allowed Iran to launch the drone and use it to intrude in Israeli airspace. Israel can’t allow such intrusions to go unanswered. Deterrence is essential; otherwise, Israeli forces could be quickly overwhelmed trying to maintain an effective, but wholly defensive, posture.


Refugee Family Set to Win Millions from NHS for Not Using Foreign Language to Explain Importance of Feeding Newborn

The child of the Rajatheepan family, originally from Sri Lanka, has been left with severe brain damage because midwives did not explain the importance of feeding the newborn regularly, a judge has ruled.

The boy, now eight, was born in a healthy condition at King George Hospital in Goodmayes, Essex, in July 2009, but was left limp and sick after not being fed for 15 hours.

Judge Martin McKenna said medics failed to overcome the language barrier, which directly resulted in the baby suffering the catastrophic injuries.


Untreated sewage pollutes water across the country

Nearly 120 million cubic metres of untreated sewage and runoff entered Canadian waterways in 2016, StarMetro has learned.

That’s roughly the same amount of water that roars over the edge of Niagara Falls over the course of 12 hours — except it’s not whitewater spewing from these pipes. It’s murky, brown and a little bit chunky.


Sweden: Serial Rapist Convicted For The Third Time- Yet “impossible” To Expel

Nigerian David Akinremi, 29, in Göteborg has once again been convicted of rape. It is the third time since 2011 that he is convicted of the same sexual attack crime against different women.

But under current legislation, it is seemingly impossible to expel him back to Africa – simply because he has received a Swedish passport one year after registering in Sweden.


Pipeline shortage to cost the economy $15.6 billion this year: report

Lack of pipelines and massive discounts for Canadian heavy oil could cost the economy $15.6 billion this year, or three-fourths of a point from the country’s GDP, according to economists at Scotiabank.

“Reliance on the existing pipeline network and rail shipments to bring Canadian oil to market has a demonstrable impact on Canada’s well-being, with consequences that extend well beyond Alberta,” Scotiabank senior vice-president and chief economist Jean-Francois Perrault and commodity economist Rory Johnston wrote in a report released Tuesday.
