    Cuba confirms arms bound for North Korea on ship seized in Panama

    Cuba confirms arms bound for North Korea on ship seized in Panama

    Cuba has confirmed a North Korean cargo ship seized in Panama was carrying missiles, fighter jets and other armaments that were loaded in Cuban ports but claimed it was "obsolete defensive weaponry" being sent away for repair.
    Fidel Castro in a video against the nuclear war on October 15, 2010, said: Let us have the courage to proclaim that all nuclear or conventional weapons, everything that is used to make war, must disappear.”

    The Castroit tyrannical regime is trading brown sugar weapons of destruction with the North Korean government, a state sponsor of terrorism. This is a perfect match and a very dangerous alliance for the rest of the world.

    The island doesn’t build missile components, where did this cargo originate from? The captain of the Korean ship attempted suicide for being caught red handed shipping missiles, found after being hidden under sugar and supposedly for repair. Why were the Russians not asked to fix it? If the weapons were obsolete, why repair them? Because the regime story is a complete lie. How is possible that anyone could pay attention to what the Castroit regime says, when it distort the facts and twist the words.

    Shouldn't we know, by now, exactly what was being shipped?

    I'm still trying to piece this all together. I mean, I'm glad Cuba discovered the illegal arms but what's their end-game? Why would they care about NKor shipping illegal weapons anywhere?

    That's what I'm expecting (Soviet). We'll see, when the info is released.

    As all 3 branches of the US government violate the US Constitution on an almost daily basis, certainly what the US people should focus on is an ancient Russian missle in the hold of a NK ship in the Panama Canal, and of course, the imminent birth of some British Royalty.

    "Ancient" Russian missiles could hit their intended targets. Unlike current NK missiles, Ancient Russian one's are better.

    Latest is Migs, which got a small chuckle out of me. If you're going to field a functioning air force don't you need armies of trained trained support engineers, technicians and replacement parts?
