    As with many things on internet forums, there is no clue at all.

    Re: Finland 'finds Patriot missiles' on China-bound ship

    I'd like to know how in hell 69 of our Patriot missles went missing and our government didn't know about it. Do we just pile these things in a "Lockers R Us" storage unit, and put a $15 padlock on the door? Is there any substantive, you know, inventory procedures so that our military knows what ordnance we have, how much we have, and where the **** it is?

    Whose in charge of our weapons, anyway? Col. Dumb and General Dumber?

    1. It has yet to be confirmed that they are, indeed, Patriot missiles.
    2. Whatever they are, there is no evidence or claims that they are "missing".
    3. There is no reporting whatsoever that "our government" does nor does not know anything about it, or even if "our government" should know anything about it.

    Nice. Do you presume that anyone who sees a particular issue differently than you is some kind of fanatical, right-wing nut job? Or do you simply resort to personal insult because it's the best you got?

    No. But if the post reads like the product of fanatical, right-wing nut jobbiness, then I call it as I see it.

    All of the news repeats itself.

    Iran Contra affair....

    Operation Fast and Furious....

    Now some more secret **** that probably has some government big wigs at the very core.

    Due to continual improvements since its inception, there are numerous "generations" of the Patriot missile. The US and Israel have co-developed the two newest Patriot generations and share the technology (US/Patriot - Israel/Arrow). Regardless of generation though, any transnational shipment of such an item requires a EUC.

    Wait, I heard it in MBC radio that Germany signed a deal with South Korea to sell Patriot missiles.
    Due to the proximity of the locations, I think it might be a mix-up.
