” This interim agreement is badly skewed from America’s perspective. Iran retains its full capacity to enrich uranium, thus abandoning a decade of Western insistence and Security Council resolutions that Iran stop all uranium-enrichment activities. Allowing Iran to continue enriching, and despite modest (indeed, utterly inadequate) measures to prevent it from increasing its enriched-uranium stockpiles and its overall nuclear infrastructure, lays the predicate for Iran fully enjoying its “right” to enrichment in any “final” agreement. Indeed, the interim agreement itself acknowledges that a “comprehensive solution” will “involve a mutually defined enrichment program.” This is not, as the Obama administration leaked before the deal became public, a “compromise” on Iran’s claimed “right” to enrichment. This is abject surrender by the United States.
In exchange for superficial concessions, Iran achieved three critical breakthroughs. First, it bought time to continue all aspects of its nuclear-weapons program the agreement does not cover (centrifuge manufacturing and testing; weaponization research and fabrication; and its entire ballistic missile program). Indeed, given that the interim agreement contemplates periodic renewals, Iran may have gained all of the time it needs to achieve weaponization not of simply a handful of nuclear weapons, but of dozens or more.”
Israel has always had much to fear from an Obama administration and now the worst of those fears have been realized . Kerry and Obama have essentially thrown Israel to the wolves and the massive bloodshed just over the horizon will be on their hands .
” Most importantly, the deal leaves the basic strategic realities unchanged. Iran’s nuclear program was, from its inception, a weapons program, and it remains one today. Even modest constraints, easily and rapidly reversible, do not change that fundamental political and operational reality. And while some already-known aspects of Iran’s nuclear program are returned to enhanced scrutiny, the undeclared and likely unknown military work will continue to expand, thus recalling the drunk looking for his lost car keys under the street lamp because of the better lighting.”

This is a profoundly disturbing video .
” When you think about what’s inside an Xbox the results aren’t too surprising. Yeah, .50 BMG throws a big bullet plenty fast but put a wall of copper, glass and steel in front of any projectile and see how much luck you have with that.
Fortunately, that’s where the C4 comes in.”

Resist the urge … we dare you .
If you stand around a gun counter long enough, someone will walk in and ask the so-called “expert” behind the counter, “What is the best thing for home defense?” Without missing a beat the answer usually is, “buy yourself X brand of shotgun, you can’t miss.” At this point, I usually leave said store because I can’t stand hearing sewage like this spewed at uneducated buyers. I am in no way saying the shotgun is not a great home-defense weapon; it has been proven time and time again to be a great choice for home defense. What I am saying is the myth surrounding the shotgun, and the amount of cool-guy stuff you can hang off of one, has placed the venerable shotgun on a big white pedestal. A shotgun is one of the most versatile but hard-to-master firearms available. They are usually (with exception of NFA items) bulky, heavy, slow to reload and hold a laughable amount of ammo.
For the purpose of this article I’m only going to cover “combat” shotguns, ones commonly used for home defense, patrol work or in the military. This style usually has barrels of 20″ or shorter, holds five or more rounds and is not well-suited to hunting or target shooting. If you have ever watched a show about police on TV and they pull out a shotgun, then you know what I am talking about. “
The DC Caller offers a very thorough primer on shotguns for home defense and while they may not be for everyone there is no doubting their effectiveness in the hands of an experienced user. The article is well worth your time , even if you think you know it all .
” Clocking in at a tiny eight-inches long and 2.1 ounces light, the PD-100 Black Hornet, was previously a mere prototype back in 2009, developed by Norwegian company Prox Dynamics AS. It has already been put to work by British infantrymen in Afghanistan, scouting possible routes for enemy ambushes or secretively flying over enemy compound walls for a look inside. The pocket-sized drones, which were unveiled at the Association of the U.S. Army Expo for the first time last week, are meant for a soldier’s personal use, not unlike a walkie talkie, and is similarly easy to operate.
Since the Black Hornet isn’t equipped with infrared abilities, it’s most suited for full daytime reconnaissance missions. The U.S. Army has purchased two Black Hornets, most likely for testing, while the British military already has 324 of the tiny spies waiting in the wings. In the meantime, Prox Dynamics AS is currently working on adding additional sensors and tweaking the drone for the ultimate stealth insect.”
This is an amazing leap in technology and one that is surely a welcome addition to the combat soldier’s kit , however , it demonstrates very vividly the need for a comprehensive review of and codification of the legalities of drone use on the domestic front . The potential for abuse by law enforcement of this nearly invisible spy is huge and considering that not a day goes by without us having some story of law enforcement thuggery to report , we most definitely cannot TRUST the State to do the right thing merely because they are the State .

” The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI), the standards-setting organization for the industry, has provided this video to fire departments nationwide to help firefighters better address the realities of fires in which sporting ammunition is present.”
Long time readers may be familiar with this video as we have posted similar videos from SAAMI in the past , perhaps even this one , but we were unable to locate a reference to it in our archives . Anyway , the subject bares repeating as it is comforting to know that large quantities of stockpiled ammunition pose no great explosive hazard . Preppers can rest easy .
