    No problem those going to S. Korea as they are defensive and understood why wanting it secret. But seems like reckless tracking and safeguarding. Obviously.

    It is. I remember quite clearly when I was listening to MBC radio on the drive to work about 6 days ago, that Germany announced that it would sell Patriot missiles to us.
    Here's my opinion, which I posted earlier:

    Due to the proximity of the locations, I think it might be a mix-up.

    Well, alright I'll buy that, but the OP said this, "The Finnish authorities have impounded an Isle of Man-flagged ship bound for China with undeclared missiles and explosives, officials say."

    So if it was China-bound that's still very bad. Perhaps the original report is in error? Maybe it was bound for SK instead?

    If the shipment was legit, why was it marked "fireworks"?

    Maybe it was a legitimate shipment but sorta-accidentally-on purpose placed on the wrong ship, with a new label. Still looks like espionage doesn't it?

    Yes, or perhaps arms smuggling.

    My guess is Obama did it.
