The Finnish authorities have impounded an Isle of Man-flagged ship bound for China with undeclared missiles and explosives, officials say.

Police are questioning the crew of the MS Thor Liberty after what were described as 69 Patriot anti-missile missiles were found aboard.

Interior Minister Paivi Rasanen said the missiles were marked "fireworks".

likely, they weren't going to be used killing US children--
so who cares?


i know it's off topic but, i can't figure out why everybody on earth hates us.
sure, we bomb and kill, it's more efficient now, drones. no more guilt by
pilots of bomber aircraft.

besides, more bombs, more killing, more wars means more status quo!
who was it that said, "kill them all, let god sort them out"?

china needs them to support its' self interests. probably in fear of n korea
attacking china.
will anyone be held accountable? no, its our foreign policy to help our friends.

"kinder, gentler, machine gun world".

I like the concept of the Isle of Man... in a way it's neutral and self governing from the UK, sort of how the Swiss "Confederation" was separated from the other German confederacies to give it an independent status.

Quote:
A spokesman for Germany’s Defense Ministry said the missiles were an official shipment that was fully declared and had all necessary clearings from German authorities.

“Those patriot guided missiles are from the Bundeswehr’s stocks and have been shipped to South Korea” according to an intergovernmental treaty.


The U.S. moving Patriot missiles to South Korea... welcome to the fold new Kim!

War is a biological necessity of the first importance, a regulative element in the life of mankind which cannot be dispensed with, since without it an unhealthy development will follow, which excludes every advancement of the race, and therefore all real civilization.-Friedrich von Bernhardi

What can be said for a man who would allow his home to be invaded by strangers who demanded they be fed, clothed, housed and granted the rights of the first-born? What can be said for a ruling elite that permits this to be done to the nation, and who celebrate it as a milestone of moral progress?-Pat Buchanan
