Commander Zero Swoops in to Europe

Making a dramatic entrance, Commander Zero touched down in Amsterdam in a military helicopter, flanked by a squadron of battle-green gunships to tell a meeting of Europe's leaders that more needs to be done to prevent the region from descending into all-out war Putin from embarrassing him any further. 
Obama's first visit to Brussels to cost
Belgium more than €10m
As Belgium's capital and host to the EU and Nato, Brussels is used to deploying heavy security when big names pop by. But US President Barack Obama's visit on Tuesday will strain the city like never before with €10m (£8.4m) of Belgian money being spent to cover his 24 hours in the country.
The president will arrive on Tuesday night with a 900-strong entourage, including 45 vehicles and three cargo planes. Advance security teams orchestrating every last detail have combed Brussels already, checking the sewers and the major hospitals, while American military helicopters were last week given the green light for overflights.
