    Former VP candidate says president isn't a good Christian due to his policies.

    A former Vice Presidential candidate said the President, "walks around calling himself a good Christian but I don't for one minute believe it, because the policies are so terribly unfair.”

    More Subs Launched by Iranians?

    The Iranians "claim" that they launched 4 more Ghadir class mini-subs this week. This would bring the number to 11, and has the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), Brig. Gen. Yadollah Javani, saying that Iran’s enemies have never dared to attack because of the vulnerability of the waterway.

    “If anything happens in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz is closed, the possibility of using this route will be lost for decades, and this will be a great tragedy for the global economy."

    Latest P8 arrives at Pax River for testing

    The third P8 to be used in the Navy and Boeing's test program has arrived at Pax River.  The Navy is finally on a path to replace aging P-3 aircraft, with the P8 expected to make it's initial availability in 2013.

    While the airframe is a significant size upgrade from the P3 and has much shorter transit to on station times, it does lack some of the P3's functionality.

    Hopefully, it will still make an effective ASW platform.
