In what would seem to be a career making story apparently the US media. Go ahead Google it, not important because it would reflect just how horribly this administration is run and what a total incompetent Obama actually is.
Apparently those that want to control out thoughts don’t want us to know about the insignificance of this mishap or shall we call it a “Man made overseas disaster?”‘
When you give it serious thought, what’s 69 missing Patriot missiles on the ship and around 160 tons of explosives among friends?
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
The Finnish authorities have impounded an Isle of Man-flagged ship bound for China with undeclared missiles and explosives, officials say.
The MS Thor Liberty left port in Emden, northern Germany, on 13 December and docked two days later in Kotka, southern Finland, to pick up a cargo of anchor chains, said Finnish Customs spokesman Petri Lounatmaa.
It was bound for the Chinese port of Shanghai but there was no indication for whom the military cargo was destined.
Routine checks by Finland’s traffic safety authority revealed a load of up to 160 tonnes of improperly packed nitroguanidine, a low-sensitivity explosive with a high detonation speed.
“Actually in our investigation at the moment, we have got the information that we found 69 Patriot missiles on the ship and around 160 tonnes of explosives,” said Detective Superintendent Timo Virtanen from the Finnish National Bureau of Investigation.
Interior Minister Rasanen said she had not heard of a similar case.
“Of course, there are legal transports of weapons or defence material [through Finland] but in this case the cargo was marked as containing fireworks,” she told Finnish media. “That is quite unusual.”
Mr Lounatmaa said customs officials and police had launched a joint investigation into a possible breach of Finnish export and weapons trading laws.
He said that the crew of about 32 were being questioned.
Patriot missiles, designed by the US company Raytheon, are supplied to “US and allied forces”, according to the company’s website. South Korea is among states which deploy them.
