Posted on 03/03/2013 8:46:58 AM PST by LSUfan
The New York Times of all sources has a report this weekend of Chinese-made MANPAD (Man Portable Air Defense) missiles seized on a Iranian ship headed for Jihadists in Yemen.
This development highlights a few issues:
1. The Red Chinese continue to sell arms to the Iranians, despite sanctions. The Chicoms know that Iran is no threat to them and could care less that Iran supplies arms to terrorists who target the West and others in the Middle East.
2. The Iranians continue to use their petro-wealth to buy arms and they continue to actively send those arms to Jihadists abroad.
The weapons involved are QW-1M surface to air missiles manufactured by a Red Chinese state-owned company.

Time to take out an oil terminal.
This is a perfect opportunity for us to follow these shipments and then destroy them from above when they reach the islamokooks.
If we had someone with a clue running our defense department and country that is.
Its noting new, Our soldiers were facing Chinese weapons in Afghanistan since the beginning. They were shipped to Iran and then into Afghanistan.
I sure if he just needs to sit down and talk to them. /s
You know, this could come back to haunt China.
No, China will mow down the Muslims if they get uppity. They did that just last year or so in Xinjiang, and not as much as a whimper from the Muslim “world” about it.
If we actually had a real POTUS we would see Operation Praying Mantis II.
If we didn’t care in 06 I don’t see much point in caring now.
Our government is busy working on abortion rights, gay marriage, legalizing drugs and illegal aliens, more food stamps, welfare, free health insurance, and taking weapons away from citizens.
Meanwhile China's students are number one in math and science while American students rank 25th.
Its a mess that seems endless only because we keep playing along. There are dozens of stories out there if one chooses to look.
Chinese weapons ‘reaching the Taliban’ (from 07)
“...Our soldiers were facing Chinese weapons in Afghanistan since the beginning. They were shipped to Iran and then into Afghanistan.”
Now that can’t be true at all. Plenty of FReepers assured us over and over, right here on this forum, that shiites and sunnis would NEVER cooperate. /s
Post of the year. Brevity is the soul of wit and you nailed our PROBLEM.
But I thot the Iranians were a bunch of technological geniuses who had an arms industry of their own and can make their own stuff??? Iamanutjob said so. Something as simple as a Manpad ought to be a piece of cake. Tell me again why an illegal shipment of weapons wasn’t confiscated by task force 50 ( or is it 151?) ?? Must be part of the Obamalypse cutbacks. Either that or I just have to throw the BS flag on the story.
China thinks they are too big to fail, I guess
