So /k/, I've got my heart inexplicably set on building a correct-as-humanly-possible M16A1 clone. I attribute it to my autism. Anyway...
What would be the easiest and cheapest way to go about this? There's a full demilled kit here for $700, but it lacks the barrel and lower, and as I understand it the trigger would also need to be replaced. So really I'm just getting a questionable furniture set, an upper, BCG, and all the other small parts.
On the other hand, I could source all of the parts individually.

I'm not sure exactly what parts are A1-specific, and what can just be universal AR-15 parts. Also, if anyone has better sources, for those I have listed, it would be appreciated.
Major war between nuclear armed opponents.

Say France and the UK got into a tussle over who gets to control Belgium... whatever, a situation like that.
On one hand, nuclear weapons might keep that war from ever happening, but on the other hand neither side would push the button I bet.
Think we might see a conventional war again in our time? Not even WW3, just, one major country decides it wants 'X' territory for whatever reason, another major country disagrees and 'oh shit, Russia and China are fighting over eastern Siberia!'?

>Yemeni forces have targeted and destroyed an Emirati military vessel in a rocket attack near the Red Sea port city of Mokha, al-Masirah TV says. The C-802 is the export upgraded version of the Chinese anti-ship missile YJ-8 (Chinese: ??-8, literally "Eagle Strike"; NATO reporting name: CSS-N-8 Saccade).
>The ship is a wave-piercing, aluminum-hulled, commercial catamaran with military enhancements, such as a helicopter flight deck, vehicle deck, small boat and unmanned vehicle launch and recovery capability, and a communications suite. While from the front the vessel looks like a trimaran, the center hull does not rest in the water and is not used for buoyancy. Propulsion is provided by directional water jets, so the ship does not have propellers or a rudder for steering, and can maneuver in twelve feet of water.
>As of July 2015 the vessel is reported to be operated by the UAE's National Marine Dredging Company. The United Arab Emirates are part of the ongoing Saudi-led War in Yemen.
