    Then get yourself to an opthomoligist immediately. Tell him your sight is severely impaired. He might be able to rectify the situation.

    No. It's one of my many talents
    I hope the rest of your talents are less mediocre and contribute more to society than your less-than-astute ability to attack fellow posters with lame insults.

    Whoever is responsible probably has a fat Swiss bank account and is currently wearing dark sunglasses at an obscure beach in Belize.

    I wonder just where those smuggled arms were going?

    Iran, perhaps?

    Good for the Fins for having stopped it.

    No one here knows, although some think they do

    It's highly improbable that those missiles came from an American depot. There are several layers of security redundancies protecting these kinds of weapons. You would have to get literally dozens of people to not only cooperate in perfect concert, but also keep their mouths shut to pull off a heist like this and there's no way to keep that many people in line.

    My money is still on these missiles coming from Egypt. It makes more sense than any other possibility; the Muslim Brotherhood has taken over the government and there's no doubt they are willing to sell American technology to whichever one of their padnahs that wants it.

    The question I have is: where are the launchers? The missiles are useless without the launchers.

    Probably in another container marked "noodles", or perhaps "video games."

    No telling, but I'm wondering if the launchers were already shipped, or not.

    Check the containers labeled "Right Wing Conspiracy Theories". Should be easy to find, as they will be rather large.

    69 Patriot missiles accidentally loaded on the wrong ship by mistake makes perfect sense.
