Taco Bell Cantina in Las Vegas is cashing in on Valentine’s Day fervor and the area’s reputation as a haven for wild weddings by letting patrons order nuptials right off the menu.


For a measly $600, you and your spouse-to-be can not only be lawfully wed in a Taco Bell chapel, but the chain will throw in a Taco Bell garter, bow tie, sauce-packet wedding bouquet (mmmm), “just married” t-shirts, champagne flutes, and a wedding cake made out of a Cinnabon.

But here’s the best part: It’s catered! For your first meal as a married couple, you get to chow down on the legendary taco 12-pack. Speaking of firsts, this will probably also mark the first night you and your new spouse shit your brains out together. But you’re committed now, in sickness and in health, forever. And you can’t take back those vows, even if they are administered by the Taco Bell chihuahua.

It’s also worth noting that the fast-food chain is hosting a contest for the first couple to have a Taco Bell wedding that includes an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas, Nevada and hotel stay at Planet Hollywood.

New London — Retired four-star general John Kelly said that as President Donald Trump's chief of staff, he pushed back against the proposal to deploy U.S. troops to the southern border, arguing at the time that active-duty U.S. military personnel typically don't deploy or operate domestically.

"We don't like it," Kelly said in remarks at the Coast Guard Academy on Thursday night. "We see that as someone else's job meaning law enforcement."

Yemen's Houthi rebel group, part of a regional network of militants backed by Iran, claims to be behind the drone strikes on two Saudi oil facilities that have the potential to disrupt global oil supplies.

A report from the United Nations Security Council published in January suggests that Houthi forces have obtained more powerful drone weaponry than what was previously available to them, and that the newer drones have the capability to travel greater distances and inflict more harm.

The U.S. Air Force has selected two companies to make an extreme cold-weather boot for pilots as part of a long-term effort to better protect aviators from frostbite in emergencies.

In August the service awarded a contract worth up to $4.75 million to be split between Propel LLC and the Belleville Boot Company for boots designed keep pilots' feet warm in temperatures as low as -20 Fahrenheit without the bulk of existing extreme cold weather boots, according to Debra McLean, acquisition program manager for Clothing & Textiles Domain at Air Force Life Cycle Management Command's Agile Combat Support/Human Systems Division.

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran rejected accusations by the United States that it was behind attacks on Saudi oil plants that risk disrupting world energy supplies and warned on Sunday that U.S. bases and aircraft carriers in the region were in range of its missiles.

Yemen's Houthi group claimed responsibility for Saturday's attacks that knocked out more than half of Saudi oil output or more than 5% of global supply, but U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the assault was the work of Iran, a Houthi ally.
