Following the Iranian-backed Shiite Houthi rebels’ occupation of the mostly Sunni Yemeni city of Ta’izz in south-west Yemen, the Houthis are a small step from surging south-ward to the Yemeni Port of Aden, and effectively controlling the Yemeni side of the critical naval chokepoint of Bab el-Mandeb, or Mandab Strait.
The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is denying that Qods Force commander Gen. Qassem Suleimani said that Iran seeks to control Jordan, just as it controls Iraq and Lebanon. Iran has also removed the report of Suleimani’s remarks from the Iranian Students’ News Agency website.
Al Masdar reported on Monday:
Eralier on Sunday some media outlets reported General Suleimani had allegedly said that “Iran can control both of Iraq and Lebanon and also has such ability in Jordan.”
“Reports which recently emerged over alleged remarks by the commander of al-Quds force General Qassem Suleimani are baseless,” the statement said.
“Alleged analysis and remarks by General Suleimani on the situation in the region and Jordan are pure lies.”
It is possible for one pilot of an Airbus A320 to lock the other pilot out of the cockpit to the extent that he cannot regain entry, even if the aircraft is in a fatal dive, says an Australian pilot of an A320.
The New York Times has reported, citing an official involved in the Germanwings crash investigation, that the cockpit voice recorder shows one of the pilots had left the flight deck and could not regain entry.
“You can hear he is trying to smash the [cockpit] door down,” the official said.
An Australian A320 pilot, who declined to be named, said the locked flight deck of the aircraft could be entered using an emergency code on a keypad. In the case of the pilot flying the aircraft being incapacitated, the door will automatically open after a set period of time if the correct code is entered.
However, in the event a pilot flying the aircraft does not want the other pilot to enter the flight deck, the one in the cockpit has the ability to block entry if he reacts before the door would be opened automatically.
Ottawa Police are hoping new images released Wednesday of a rented black Dodge Charger related to the murder of known gang-member Yusuf Ibrahim will help them crack the case.
Ibrahim was shot dead in a row home on Forestglade Crescent around 9:30 a.m. on February 6th.

(And frankly its very good! Top Gun Saudi style. Surprised they used instrumental music though but its a nice break from mind warping tard-chants)
7. Here is a Daniel Greenfield article from a few weeks ago I thought was quite good and really stuck with me. Today, Yucki posted this article about how Obama stiffed his supporters at a meeting in his own home for 9 minutes at the least after he was introduced and people were standing and applauding for him. (Yes, no accounting for taste) I think this event is an excellent data point for Mr. Greenfield’s thesis.
Thank you M., Yucki, GoV., Wrath of Khan, Richard, Maria J. Tasha Carr and so many more and some new people. Even Alvin Toffler didn’t see this coming.
