Libyan Missiles Poised In Gaza

  Libyan Missiles Poised In Gaza

 How Long Will Israel Wait?

By Dell Hill

What an incredible surprise!

Remember those surface to air missiles that were missing from Libya?  You know, the 20,000 shoulder-fired missiles that have a two mile range?  You'll never guess where they've turned up.

Check out this report from ABC:
Some of the thousands of surface-to-air missiles that have gone missing since the collapse of the Gadhafi regime in Libya have now turned up just miles from the Israeli border.

U.S. officials say there were 20,000 Russian-made anti-aircraft missiles in Libya before the uprising, and thousands have disappeared in the looting of Moammar Gadhafi's arm caches. 

According to the Washington Post, many of those Russian-made anti-aircraft weapons are being sold in Egyptian black markets, and so many are available the price has dropped from $10,000 to $4,000.

Egyptian officials told the paper they have intercepted looted Libyan weapons, including anti-aircraft guns, missiles and artillery, on the road from Libya into Egypt, in black markets on the Sinai Peninsula, and in the smuggling tunnels between the Sinai and Gaza.

  1. These are shoulder fired, heat seeking missiles that pose an instant threat to the security of every aircraft within two miles.
