Panama finds MiG fighter jets on North Korean arms ship
COLON, Panama (Reuters) - Panamanian investigators unloading the cargo of a seized North Korean ship that carried arms from Cuba have found the two MiG-21 fighter jets the Cuban government had said were on board, the government said on Sunday.Several things come to mind: First off, Cuba has spare MiGs and missile radar systems to be sending to North Korea? Really? I hope this is true, and not a re-start of the Cold War and the Soviets aren't pulling the strings here. I mean, Russia has Vladimir Putin, who wrestles bears for fun while shooting belt-fed machine guns. We have President Mom Jeans with his bike helmet. I'm not sure I want to see the result of this confrontation.
Alongside the two supersonic planes, originally produced by the Soviet Union in the late 1950s, officials found two missile radar systems on board the Chong Chon Gang, President Ricardo Martinelli told reporters in the Atlantic port of Colon.
Secondly, they were hiding jet fighters under sugar? Who did they think they were dealing with, Homer Simpson?
Lastly, I think what scares me most about this whole thing is that we have a communist nation off the coast of Florida that is attempting to supply North Korea with fighter planes. North Korea, a nation that has threatened to use nuclear weapons against us, has a strict arms embargo against it because of their ongoing search for nuclear weapons and the means to deliver the. A sworn enemy of the United States is working with another sworn enemy of the United States to illegally transfer arms between them. That should scare you. It scares me.
Meanwhile, the only story on the news is about the royal baby...
That is all.
