(Best Syndication News) Washington, D.C.—U.S. House Armed Services Committee Ranking Member Howard P. “Buck” McKeon (R-Calif.) today applauded the signing into law of new U.S. sanctions targeting Iran’s nuclear program.

In the following statement released today, McKeon also called upon the President to ensure the Administration implements the sanctions included in the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act of 2010 in the most aggressive manner possible:

“With the enactment of new U.S. government sanctions, the Iranian regime’s nuclear ambitions can no longer go unanswered. The theocracy will now be forced to choose between the economic prosperity of its citizens and a nuclear program that has been condemned by the international community.

“By signing the Iran Sanctions Bill into law, President Obama has committed his Administration to fully enforcing these sanctions. Along with many of my House colleagues, I believe the President should implement these sanctions aggressively and without delay.

“Additionally, I will continue to work to ensure that specific provisions within the House-passed defense authorization bill, which prohibit the Pentagon from contracting with entities that engage in commerce with Iran's energy sector, are signed into law.”

[Best Syndication News] New claims that archaeologists have found the biblical Noah's Ark remnants. They have showed some wood from what they think is the ship and have had it carbon dated back to the time of Noah.

The evangelical Christian archaeologists from Hong Kong are claiming to have found Noah's ark buried in a glacier. The exact location of the discovery has been kept secret. All they have disclosed is that the ark is somewhere in the eastern Turkey's Mount Ararat.

Yeung Wing-Cheung, one of those on the expedition, filmed the inside of the boat for about an hour. Yeung told ABC News that he was 99 percent sure that this discovery was the remains of Noah's Ark.
