Iran says its seizure of British ship a 'reciprocal' move
Iran's seizure of a British oil tanker was a response to Britain's role in impounding an Iranian supertanker first, senior officials said Saturday, as newly released video of the incident showed Iranian commandos in black ski masks and fatigues rappelling from a helicopter onto the vessel in the strategic Strait of Hormuz. The seizure prompted condemnation from the U.K. and its European allies as they continue to call for a de-escalation of tensions in the critical waterway.

Michelle Obama says diversity ‘truly makes' US great in rebuke of Trump's racist tweets
Former US first lady Michelle Obama appeared to weigh in on President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four minority Democratic lawmakers, tweeting that diversity is "what truly makes our country great"."Whether we are born here or seek refuge here, there's a place for us all," she added. "We must remember it's not my America or your America. It's our America."While Mrs Obama, who was the world's most admired woman in 2019 according to a YouGov poll, did not directly reference Trump, her words appeared to echo Trump's campaign slogan "Make America great again".The tweets appear to be a rebuke of Trump's attacks on congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar, who are all women of colour.President Trump had tweeted last Sunday that the four lawmakers should "go back" to their home countries "and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came".However, all four are US citizens and three were born in the United States. Michelle Obama's mention of those who "seek refuge" in the US appears an message of support to Ilhan Omar was born in Somalia but moved to the US as a child refugee almost three decades ago and is a naturalised US citizen. She and Mrs Tlaib are the only Muslim women in the US House of Representatives.Trump has recently attacked Mrs Omar, tweeting that immigrants "should ‘go back' to other countries".

Poll: 38 Percent of Democrats Say American Dream Is Unattainable for Them
38 percent of Democrats say they do not believe they will achieve the American dream in their lifetimes, compared to just 11 percent of Republicans, according to a new Gallup poll.Two-thirds of independents said they see the dream as attainable, compared to 31 percent who said they do not. Overall, about 70 percent of Americans feel that American dream could be grasped, the poll reported, while 29 percent disagree.The 38 percent of Democrats who said they did not believe they could achieve the American dream represented a sharp increase from a decade ago, when 29 percent of Democrats said the same. President Trump has described the Republican party as "the party of the American Dream," perhaps contributing to the increasing partisan split on the matter."The American dream is back," the president said after taking office in 2017. "We're going to create an environment for small business like we haven't had in many, many decades."

Satellite images ‘show US military buildup in Saudi Arabia' amid Iran tensions
The United States is preparing to send hundreds of troops to Saudi Arabia where satellite images appear to show a build up of American forces on the ground. Up to 500 soldiers are to be sent to the Prince Sultan Airbase in the desert to the east of the capital Riyadh, two officials told CNN, speaking on condition of anonymity. Preparations are also reportedly underway for a large missile installation from which Patriot surface-to-air missiles can be launched to protect the base from incoming threats. The moves would likely strengthen the US' controversial relationship with Saudi Arabia, while also responding to rising tensions with Iran which escalated dramatically in recent months. After the US unilaterally withdrew from a landmark 2015 nuclear deal last year and reimposed tight sanctions, Iran announced in July that it had surpassed limits on enriched uranium imposed in the agreement. The country insists it is not trying to build nuclear weapons.A standoff has also ensued in the Gulf, with sabotage attacks on foreign tankers, blamed on Iran by the US. In the latest incident Tehran said it had seized a foreign-owned vessel suspected of being used for oil smuggling out of the country/ The Trump administration has long sought to base troops in the remote region, but the decision to send them to Saudi Arabia comes amid outrage over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
