  • Reports noted that the U.S. Air Force is spending $4 million a day on operations over Libya, but the service's top officials are not yet sure whether the Obama administration will ask Congress for supplemental funding to cover those costs as to date the govt. has shown no such inclination. The US Air Force is providing the key command-and-control and surveillance capabilities that only it can, although, allied nations are also taking over more of the strike missions of late.1

    Meanwhile, India has banned trade in all goods and services with Iran that could help Iran pursue development of nuclear weapons, according to a government statement released. The changes were made in new foreign policy trade rules to conform to a U.N. Security Council resolution imposing sanctions on Iran related to its nuclear and missile development program in order to deter it from her weaponisation programme. India is currently also a non-permanent member of the U.N. Security Council.2
