    You are a work of art... ok one more time...

    The Libyan terrorists must be mocking the Sinai jihadists because the Sinai asshats supposedly used several attack chopper missiles and could do no more damage that that????

    The Gaza terrorists are soooo much better than that crap! The whole thing reeks.

    I did look it up... where does it say we gave attack chopper missiles to Libya??? trying finding a source for your claims!

    Who said the Libyans attacked anyone in the Sinai?

    Try again Notquiteright.....I never said we gave them chopper missiles. I said we gave them weapons and we were giving them Aid. Do keep up with the times and not get side-tracked with all that you see.....which isn't really there. But that for some reason you are the only one that can see what you say.

    Now show us just who are the Libyan Terrorists that are mocking what you call Jihadists? Show us what the Salafis have to do with the Libyans, while they continue to go after Egyptian Security Forces.

    The Hellfire missile is an air to ground missile. Often used against armored vehicles and fixed targets.

    To the OP the only way such a missile is used against an airliner is if its sitting on the ground, its not a ground to air missile.
    Get to know your stuff and dont' depend so much on your "source" of misinformation.
    a hell fire missile is a lazar guided missile its purpose is ground targets but it can be used for targets in the air it can be used to take down an aircraft on take off or landing

    and i know my **** i was in the army and i am fully aware of the hell fire missile capability it was hung on Apache helicopters that i worked on

    You quibble divinely, what does aid to whoever have to do with it if we never gave hellfires? Topic is Hellfire missiles. You side track worse than an ADHD kid in a fun house.

    You must work very hard at being this dense on this. The Libyans laughing at the Sinai terrorists is a joke.... you really are bad at catching them... the Libyans launched a hard hitting attack that was highly effective- the Sinai bunch attacked and couldn't kill anyone. With hellfires??? The ones that are so effective in a drone strike? the Sinai bunch must be the laughing stock of all terrorist/jihadists everywhere... if they have any self respect left they shouldn't take responsibility.

    The article BTW called the missiles 'ballistic'- makes you wonder just how ignorant was the author.

    Now rather than view this through the partisan lens some must have glued to their faces- where oh where could someone have gotten USofA hellfires and who would want to drive a wedge between the USofA and the Sunni/Arab world.... it is obvious we didn't give drone/air launched missiles to the Libyans, no amount of partisan ranting makes that make any sense.

    Who supports terrorism in the Gaza/West Bank/ Lebanon area who doesn't like the USofA or Sunnis....

    Nah.....I don't quibble, that's something you are into while talking to yourself when you try to make some sort of point. That never makes sense. Which really doesn't help you with talking with others when you start to argue with yourself.

    Now the Topic was Jihadists fired Hellfire Missile at Government offices.....nothing to do with Libyan terrorists mocking Jihadists at all Notquiteright. Lets stick to reality.....mmmmkay.

    The way you wrote the original post - your part - was complete FUD. You should know, as a forum board expert, that the hellfire is not an anti aircraft weapon as YOU suggested it was. Can it be used to hit an aircraft on a runway sure, but in the air it would never have the adjustment capacity as an anti aircraft missile. In other words you made crap up for the oscillating device but I aim to pull the plug on that bugger and inform people accurately - unlike you.

    Where and how in the hell did Jihadist get ahold of American made missiles? Does the secret CIA mission in Benghazi where they had over two dozen CIA operatives stationed have anything to do with it? You do realize those missiles can easily be used to take down civilian aircraft like an airliner

    the Benghazi truths are finally coming to light. the dots are finally starting to be connected, and it is a very dangerous situation. No wonder Obama and Clinton did everything they can to cover it up. no wonder why Hillary left the state department

    this will take down Obama and Hillary both when they find enough evidence that deadly missiles like the hell fire made it into the hands of Jihadist thanks to their actions
    One needs to seriously question your truthfullness and forum board expertise. The hellfire is not an anti aircraft weapon. "Bring down" suggests a plane in flight and the hellfire is not a missile used against in flight targets. Sure it could hit an airplane that is taxi-ing along the ground but that isn't "bring down."

    I can't respect anything else you post.

    Shocking! Of the billions in US armament given/sold some got into the hands of non-reputable groups.

    I'm amazed this happened! (extreme sarcasm)

    Any country? A bit draconian I'd say, especially when our facilitation of weapons to neighboring countries plays a sizable role in deterring some of the actors in question. That's not to say we should shell out missiles with reckless abandon, but your suggestion is, at minimum, overkill.

    Egypt is a mess plain and simple. I'm not informed enough on the specific incident to make any more conclusions past that.
