News in a nutshell:
- Iran Boosting enrichment efforts
- Gas prices rise 12c in the past week (US)
- Contraceptive mandate sparks lawsuit from 7 states (US)
- New Yemen president to swear in on Saturday
The World today is seeing a tense exchange of words between three important landmasses. Iran has stepped up it's efforts on continuing it's nuclear production. Sanctions by the United States and Europe (most of it at-least) have somewhat harmed Iran's economy but not to the extent of expectation. Undoubtedly, gas prices have risen almost 12c in the US (and increasing).
What we see here is a great example of how fragile an economy and maintaining relations is. It's all a game, a very serious game, that requires finesse, patience and conviction.
