Taliban say attack aimed at controlling Kandahar

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan – The Taliban say an attack on government installations in a key city in southern Afghanistan is aimed at seizing control of Kandahar. Saturday's brazen assault casts doubt on how successful the U.S.-led coalition has been in its nearly yearlong military campaign to restore security and bring stability to the former Taliban stronghold.

Libya is all about logistics now

Friday's joint statement on Libya by David Cameron, Nicolas Sarkozy and Barack Obama is significant in several ways. First, Obama – having distanced himself from the Nato-led air strikes against Gaddafi's forces – has returned to the frontline and placed himself firmly in the campaign's leading triumvirate. This is an eerie replay of historical events: from 1943–1951 the administration of Libya (which had been an Italian colony) was divided between France and Britain, with the US establishing a significant military base in the south. The US took economic advantage of the situation by continuing research into Libya's suspected vast oil reserves, which the Italians had begun in the 1930s.

The Benefits of a U.S.-Colombia Free-Trade Deal

Economists estimate that the free-trade pact with Colombia, which received White House endorsement on Apr. 7 and awaits approval from Congress, could boost U.S. gross domestic product by $2.5 billion a year. Caterpillar (CAT) would be a bigger beneficiary than most. Colombia's booming mining business has made the nation one of the top 10 export markets for the Peoria (Ill.) manufacturer of construction equipment. Removing the country's tariffs on such goods, which range from 5 percent to 15 percent, would cut $100,000 from the $2 million price tag for Caterpillar's D11 bulldozer. Buyers of one of the company's behemoth trucks, which go for $2 million or more, would save $300,000 without the tariffs.
