Top 3 International Stories I’m Watching Today

Today is mostly about Iran:

1.) Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad visits Egypt in the wake of their political turmoil and his loss descent from grace. Stronger ties between Iran and Egypt mean nothing good for the region. This will be the first time an Iranian President visits Egypt since 1979.

2.) Iran promises to meet with the West for nuclear talks on Feb. 26th. These have gone so well in past, especially when Iran backs out at the last minute.

3.) Its Safer Internet Day (wheeee!) Pretty much a day to raise awareness about online issues and safety. This year the theme is actually connecting across generations, something I whole-heartedly support. Go send your grandma an email.
