    This is not factual. The U.S. regulates the sales of weapons and weapon materials, including chemical weapons (which would cover tear gas).

    You can't simply buy those things commercially on the internet and have them shipped overseas. That's illegal, and the companies won't do it. They also won't ship to certain U.S. cities and regions with laws limiting tear gas possession.

    nice try, though.

    At what point do you think that you will stop pretending to be an expert when you clearly aren't?

    Neither have I... Makes one wonder if it's some kind of conspiracy, doesn't it?

    Obviously not, in this case. Most probably, those regulations only apply to lethal weapons.

    Either way, what difference does it make where they got their CS ammo from? They woulda got it from somebody and the people that mde it and sold it aren't reponsible for how it's used, or who it's used on. It's stupid to hate America, just because the Egyptian cops are using American made tear gas. What's worse, is when people that this issue and use it to fester more hatred of America.

    The point is, it's been spun throughout this thread, that these rounds were US military issue and that turns out to be a lie.

    Why would anyone want to incite more hatred of America? Especially, Libbos.

    Actually, the claim was that they were made in the U.S. If you can prove otherwise, please link to the post that supports the above (strawman) statement.

    The point is: You don't know what you're talking about on this subject.

    I am almost positive that the ID plate on HARM misses include a made in USA stamp. Being factual is not hating the USA, nice try though.
