A little background on Saudi Arabias current situation:

Saudi Arabia is in the throes of a crisis. The economy cannot keep pace with population growth, the welfare state is rapidly deteriorating, and regional and sectarian resentments are rising to the fore. These problems have been exacerbated by an upsurge in radical Islamic activism. Many agree that the Saudi political system must somehow evolve, but a profound cultural schizophrenia prevents the elite from agreeing on the specifics of reform.

The Saudi monarchy functions as the intermediary between two distinct political communities: a Westernized elite that looks to Europe and the United States as models of political development, and a Wahhabi religious establishment that holds up its interpretation of Islam's golden age as a guide. Saudi Arabia's two most powerful princes have taken opposing sides in this debate: Abdullah tilts toward the liberal reformers and seeks a rapprochement with the United States, whereas Nayef sides with the clerics and takes direction from an anti-American religious establishment that shares many goals with al Qaeda.

Saudi Arabia lays claim to some of the world's most valuable oil deposits beneath land largely blanketed by barren desert. It is known as the birthplace of Islam, and is the cradle of the Arab people. Petroleum profits have thrust it into the modern age and made it one of the most powerful nations in the Middle East. In 2000, normally good relations with the U.S. grew strained when Crown Prince Abdullah blamed Washington for the collapse of peace talks at an Arab summit in Cairo. Once the base of operations for the U.N. coalition in the 1991 Gulf War, and again quietly for the United States' air campaign over Afghanistan in 2002, Saudi Arabia has publicly proven less cooperative in a possible campaign against Iraq.

No official statement from the absolute monarchy ruled by the Al Saud family has been given. Contacts trying to get a statement from the high ranking officials on the plane-crash, has been in vain.

The government do however express concern about Iran's actions. Due to Irans current actions in obtaining nuclear arms and their increasing involvements in Iraq politics and trying to obtain a stronger control on the Middle-East, Saudi Arabia wont hold back on any show of force. Russia will be supported in any military actions.

Germany urges Eritrea to hand over the pilots and equipment in question to the US, this must be done so the world community can get to the bottom of this matter. The support and aid of the EU could be at risk if Eritrea does not comply and cooperate.

The President of Iran gave a short but to the point statement to the press this afternoon. The transcript reads:

"The Nation of Iran gives thanks to the allies who have given it support in this moment of crisis. We will not back down or give quarter to those that oppose us.

We salute our brothers in North korea for the rise in stature their latest victory has brought them and offer hope to Eritrea for a quick and safe solution to their problems as well. We will not let you down.

What is to come is to come. It has been prophesied for many centuries and finally we shall see the fruits of our beliefs."

In a press release today by the South Korean Leader, which was called after the revelation that there will be a united Korea once more, the following was said.

''Today is a great day for are two country's, for too long we have been separated by bureaucracy and western torment.'' He then went on to say ''From midnight today we will be re-opening our boarder to are northern brothers.''

When asked what his stance was on America's military presence in the country, he responded ''America is no longer needed or welcome in the New Peoples Principality of Korea.'' He then went on to issue this stark warning, ''We have issued America with a time line for withdrawal of its Troops....... I would also urge all American civilians to leave the regain as there safety can no longer be guaranteed.''

''We will also be increasing are military training and weapons production, as the Western tyrants can not be trusted any more.'' He then went on to comment, ''We will also be increasing spending on research and development in the military.'' When asked to comment further, his reply was 'No, i will not be pulled into a discussion that could result in a breach in national security.''

His closing statement was ''We would like to offer a invitation to the Iran and Russia leaders'' When asked to expand on the reason, he stated ''I am offering this invitation in the hope that we can partake in a free 'market', so to speak. He then went on to state '' Both countries have a substantial supply of Energy resources, which as everybody knows is a requirement of a country in a spurt of growth such as ours.''

These are startling revelations from the South Korean leader. Reports state that the country is 'buzzing' with excitement after hearing of these developments.

More to follow....

This is a CNN Special News Bulletin.

The Pentagon has released a report that a burst of radiation has been seen in a New Peoples Principality of Korea port. It appears to have happened shortly after the first Eritrean food shipment arrived at the port. It is unknown was caused the burst, but further investigation is ongoing. The White House has asked Russia to double check their plutonium stores to verify that the plutonium they found matched the amount that was missing.

The Nation of Iran announced today that it is forming a technical and military alliance with the newly unified nation of Korea. In the Presidents speech he outlined the following.

“Our two nations have reached an historical and truly great agreement today. We shall share our technologies, our cultures and our military prowess to defend each other against the evil nature of those who oppose the freedom of all nations to choose their own path. We shall open our borders to free passage between our nations and the sharing of culture. We shall support our allies in any and all ways they may need and be open to the support of them should the need arise.”

How this agreement will play out on the world stage is yet to be seen.

The Pentagon has just released a statement that the DIA working with the FBI and CIA has traced a large money transfer to a bank in Eritrea. The transfer came through several dummy corporations, and has been traced back to a company with known ties to the Iranian government.

"This is the first concrete proof we have of Iranian involvement in this incident" the Pentagon spokesperson said. "We don't have a motive for this horrific incident, but at least now we know who did it. A number of options are being examined at this time."

More information as it becomes available.

In a stunning turn of events from Germany last night the parliament approved and the Chancellor signed into law, this new law lowers the requirements needed for Germany to commit troops for offensive military operations. This new law will allow Germany to partake in unrestricted offensive military operations as long as it is in a coalition and its not a unilateral action. Germany hopes to work close with the military alliance of NATO, the EU and the UN. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that “in order to be prepared to safeguard the German people and state we have taken this action because the world is changing, and our old laws were inadequate to deal with this new world.”.

Merkel also said that she is very disappointed that Japan has taken such radical action.

This is CNN with a special news bulletin.

Russia has confirmed that the plutonium that was found was in fact NOT the missing plutonium. Several small amounts along with nuclear simulators were found in the crates that were discovered two days ago in a warehouse in the Ukraine. It is unknown how the plutonium was stolen, or where it was shipped to, but it is now confirmed that there IS enough missing plutonium for three small nuclear weapons. The Pentagon released a statement earlier today, "We believe that it's just too much of a coincidence that there was a radioactive bloom in an NPPK port after it was discovered that there is missing plutonium in Russia. The NPPK must have stolen the material." It is unknown what actions will be taken at this time, however, the ship that carried the apparent plutonium to the NPPK began its journey in Eritrea.

"About the same time this ship began sailing, Eritrea received a shipment of helicopters from Russia. We believe that the plutonium was packed in with the helicopters, and then loaded onto the 'food shipment' bound for the NPPK. There are a number of options available to us at this time, however we are continuing to examine all the data before making a move."
