EXPLAINER: US airstrike in Syria sends message to Iran

A U.S. airstrike targeting facilities used by Iran-backed militias in Syria appears to be a message to Tehran delivered by a new American administration still figuring out its approach to the Middle East. The strike was seemingly a response to stepped-up rocket attacks by such militias that have targeted U.S. interests in Iraq, where the armed groups are based. It comes even as Washington and Tehran consider a return to the 2015 accord meant to rein in Iran’s nuclear program. The U.S. appears to have chosen the target, just across the border in Syria rather than in Iraq, carefully. It's a way for President Joe Biden to signal he will be tough on Iran while avoiding a response that could offset the delicate balance in Iraq itself or trigger a wider confrontation. And it's yet another examp

With proper cleaning and care, a good gas grill should last you at least five years — and likely more than 10 — with regular year-round use. While all the grills in o

The 16 people leading Stellantis into an uncertain future after its $52 billion merger of FCA and PSA (STLA)

Summary List PlacementWith the completion of the merger between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the PSA Group in January, the combined corporate entity — dubbed Stellantis — is now officially the world's fourth-largest automaker.
