Well, if the “authorities” say there is no danger, how can there be a danger?

When have the “authorities” ever been wrong about anything?

"Our missiles are totally useless. They cannot even explode. There is no danger here at all."

Convince me with something besides newspaper platitudes.

I’m already convinced they were worth stealing.

I wish I could hear the authorities say it when I acquire 64 missile warheads and put them in the garage.

Probably just a collector.

...how can there be a danger?

"My friend.--Welcome to the Carpathians. I am anxiously expecting you. Sleep well tonight. At three tomorrow the diligence will start for Bukovina; a place on it is kept for you. At the Borgo Pass my carriage will await you and will bring you to me. I trust that your journey from London has been a happy one, and that you will enjoy your stay in my beautiful land.

--Your friend, Dracula."

The train contained 27 carriages, of which eight were transporting military equipment, according to transport police in the central city of Brasov quoted by Mediafax news agency. It said just the one carriage — containing the components in four boxes — was broken into. Odd, that..............

Look, the newspaper accounts are right. I have three of the warheads laid out in pieces in front of me RIGHT NOW, and so far I cannot fashion even ONE good nuclear weapon out of all these parts.

Stolen my fat foot. The recipients paid good money for them.

But the Count! Never did I imagine such wrath and fury, even to the demons of the pit. His eyes were positively blazing. The red light in them was lurid, as if the flames of hell fire blazed behind them. His face was deathly pale, and the lines of it were hard like drawn wires. The thick eyebrows that met over the nose now seemed like a heaving bar of white-hot metal.

Yep. Stoker was a helluva writer.

Well, I looked up "Grad Rocket", and it's an MLRS.

Hopefully, somebody wanted to add some pizazz to a concert or a rave, and protect it from electronic pilfering, because the types of warheads available include smoke, illumination, and radio jamming.

(As well as AP mines, AT mines, and fragmentation)
