Looking for a budget 1911? How about for $400? Tisas has just the one for you. Watch the video and judge for yourself.  Interested in owning one? Check out Buds Gunshop  I have personally bought from them and they are great. Happy shooting!

The commander of Iran's Northern Navy Fleet, Adm. Afshin Rezayee Haddad, told Iranian media that the Irianian government would be sending ships to the Atlantic Ocean and into U.S. Maritime borders, which is 14 miles from land. The reason given was to protest the U.S.'s Fifth Fleet presence in the Persian Gulf.

"When they cross into the North Atlantic, we'll start the harassment," says Chris Harmer, an analyst at the Institute for the Study of War.

Michael Connell director of Iranian studies at the center for Naval Analysis, stated that serious interactions happen about twice a year and this sort of cat and mouse game is common. 

Common? Maybe in the Persian Gulf, but allowing fully armed war ships in striking distance from our shores, especially near our Capital is scary to say the least.

 Iran currently has the Shahab-3 "Shooting Star" missile that had a range of 1,000 miles and is capable of accommodating a substantial warhead. Although it is commonly believed the Iranians do not have nuclear weapons, the possibility is great they do considering their uranium enrichment program, this is not something we should leave to chance. 

The U.S. Navy will have all eyes and hears glued to the convoy, given the Iranians antics to start war with the US Navy in the Persian Gulf, that included throwing cardboard boxes that were painted black to look like mines in front of US Warships or flying low over US ships with helicopters sending warnings over the radio,  the Navy will have to be prepared to counter any threat. 

The Senkaku islands located in the East China Sea have become a hot issue in recent months after the Chinese once again claimed the territory. The Japanese who received the islands from the US, issued statements that they would defend the islands with military force and have increased patrols around them. Since the ultimatum, China issued a "no fly zone", which the USA and Japanese have largely dismissed as political posturing. The main focus in the media revolves around the two major players in the conflict, yet conveniently ignore the fact that Taiwan has claimed the islands too and in the recent past near wars have broken out between China and Taiwan over the islands. So what would prompt a peaceful sit down? An Alliance and the planning for a future war, similar to how Italy made an alliance with the Nazi's to avoid destruction and to gain more political power during the war. 


In the meeting in Nanjing, the Chinese and Taiwanese designed a new communication system, effectively ending 65 years of hostilities. Taiwanese Minister of mainland affairs proclaimed the meeting a great success and called it a "new chapter" in relations between the two once violently opposed governments. 

“This will be good for regional stability,” George Tsai, a political scientist at Taipei-based Chinese Culture University commented. "Even if Taiwan elects a new government in 2016, there shouldn't be any back-pedaling on the relationship after ministerial-level dialogue is established.”
Are we seeing the formation of another axis of evil? Time will tell but the agreement made is surely only the beginning of nations picking sides in what will become another global war.
