US is 'locked and loaded' if Syria uses chemical weapons again: Nikki Haley

World
The U.S. announced that overnight airstrikes succeeded in dealing a severe blow against the Syrian government's capacity to use chemical weapons. But U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley also warned Saturday that the U.S. is "locked and loaded" in case Syrian President Bashar al-Assad uses chemical weapons again.

Security Council. "I spoke to the president this morning and he said that if the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded." She added, "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line." T

CSKA Moscow 2-2 Arsenal (agg 3-6): Welbeck the hero again as Arsenal reach Europa League semi-finals

Sports
Arsenal booked their place in the semi-finals of the Europa League after grinding out a 2-2 draw against a spirited CSKA Moscow at the VEB Arena. Danny Welbeck's accomplished finish in the 75th-minute and Aaron Ramsey's stoppage-time strike was enough to get the Gunners' over the line and secure a 6-3 aggregate win. Arsene Wenger's men were overwhelming favourites to go through after beating CSKA 4-1 in the first leg at the Emirates, but strikes from Fedor Chalov and Kirill Nababkin put the Russian side 2-0 up and one goal away from going through. But Welbeck, who was the hero in the north London side's 3-2 win over Southampton last weekend, came up with a priceless goal that eased the nerves for Arsenal. And with their opponents on their knees, Arse...

Trump trains crosshairs on favorite target, again – Amazon

Trump trains crosshairs on favorite target, again – Amazon

Technology
President Donald Trump returned to a favorite target Friday, saying that Amazon.com should be charged more by the U.S. Postal Service for the packages it sends around the world. Amazon has been a consistent recipient of Trump's ire. He has accused the company of failing to pay "internet taxes," though it's never been made clear by the White House what the president means by that. In a tweet Friday, Trump said Amazon should be charged "MUCH MORE" by the post office because it's "losing many billions of dollars a year" while it makes "Amazon richer." Amazon lives and dies by shipping, and an increase in the rates it pays could certainly do some damage. Amazon sends packages via the post office, FedEx, UPS and other services. In the seconds after the tweet, shares of Amazon, which had been t...
