Infringement of UN Conditions: North Korea continues to test rakets and threatens the US
North Korea has undertaken another rocket test in response to new sanctions in the US. As the General Staff of the South Korean forces announced on Friday, North Korea had fired two missiles, which are probably a short range of ballistic missiles. UN resolutions ban North Korea the testing of ballistic rockets, which may also carry an nuclear bound head depending on the design. It was the third rocket test of the self-explained nuclear night within ten days.

Seditious Conspiracy Was the Right Charge for the January 6 Organizers
The possibility that prosecutors might abuse the charge in the future is hardly a reason to shrink from it now, when it is most applicable.

The offense requires a conspiracy—a prior agreement to commit particular offenses; it does not encompass people who simply made impulsive decisions in the heat of the moment.
Emirates are part of a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia that since 2015 has been supporting the Yemen government against the Houthis supported by Iran.
Two attacks in one week
This is the second attack against the United Arab Emirates led by the Houthis in a week. The Yemeni rebels claimed on 17 January an attack of drones and missiles that hit oil facilities and Abu Dhabi airport and made three dead.
The Houthis led multiple attacks on Saudi Arabia, but the Jan. 17 attack on Abu Dhabi was the first recognized by the United Arab Emirates inside their borders.
The conflict in Yemen, which has made some 377,000 dead, has intensified in recent weeks with an increase in military coalition raids and government offensives.
