One of China’s top diplomats to the US warned Washington that Beijing would invade Taiwan should the US ever send a Navy ship to the island nation, which China considers to be a wayward province.

Li Kexin, a minister with the Chinese Embassy to the United States, said during an embassy event on Friday that he had told American officials that China would activate their Anti-Secession Law if US naval vessels were sent to the Taiwan Strait.

The law, passed in 2005, denies Taiwan’s statehood and outlines Beijing’s methods to make the unification of the two Chinas a reality. But the bill also mentions “non-peaceful action” (that being warfare) if China believes that all possibility of a bloodless unification has been lost.

The Execution of SEAL Team Six


On May 5th, I had an email conversation with a retired military man with spook contacts. All were in total agreement that the Bin Laden episode was pure theater. The SEALS were sent into a compound as evidenced by the lost chopper on site. But Osama Bin Laden wasn’t in that compound.

Osama Bin Laden has been dead for years. Bin Laden had a genetic condition that caused renal failure (this genetic condition is common among deeply inbred Saudi arab muslims).

Bin Laden had been on dialysis BEFORE 9/11. Dialysis is difficult enough for people in first world countries who can have it done in outstanding facilities. Bin Laden was having it done either in caves or in homes post 9/11.

When your on a ship like the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, the ocean is your own private swimming pool.

The series of incredible photos below shows members of the armed forces enjoying the great down-time tradition of “swim call.”

Basically “swim call” is when a massive ship stops in the middle of the ocean and lets the sailors and Marines jump in the water to help maintain morale.

In years past some sailors were placed on “shark watch” from a mounted .50 cal machine gun during swim call.

There’s also a SAR swimmer on call acting as a lifeguard.

The gallery below shows sailors and Marines jumping off destroyers and and carriers deployed around the world.

Have you ever been on swim call?

A Russian Su-30 fighter jet buzzed a Navy reconnaissance plane flying in the Black Sea while conducting a routine patrol in international airspace Saturday, an official told Fox News.

The Russian jet crossed 50 feet in front of the Navy P-8 in full afterburner causing “violent turbulence,” the official said. The provocation lasted 24 minutes.

It appears to be first known incident of this type since June, when an armed Russian fighter jet buzzed a U.S. Air Force reconnaissance aircraft over the Baltic Sea. The Russian Su-27 jet had air-to-air missiles under its wings and approached the U.S. Air Force RC-135 recon jet “rapidly,” coming within 5 feet of the American aircraft, officials said.
