Yeah, probably just another ATF sting of somekind, nothing to see here and nothing that will be prosecuted.

This is from Fox and I have found it in literally dozens of other news sources. So far, there are no follow up articles. We don't know where they came from or who was supposed to receive them. Too close for comfort. Thinking caps?

This is a Threat Matrix list documenting threats within and without. Anyone wanting on or off please advise.

DH”S” and DO”J” are right on it. {/s}

Most likely, these are weapons for the US taxpayers,
paid for by the US taxpayers, organized by Obama,
and delivered by Obama’s al Qaeda partners.

Other sources said the stuff was found in a “barrel”. Stupid journalists probably just don’t know how to describe molds and bullets.

That helps. I was wondering if these were in crates or was there a machine shop set up on board....

...officials discovered 3,300 warheads and the machine in a barrel on the wharf yesterday.

Brown said the team also recovered items which can be used to make rounds of ammunition...

...Customs agents were carrying out routine checks yesterday when they became suspicious of a barrel.

He said the police were called in, the barrel was then opened and the contraband found in it...

So no journalist wants their name attached to this story. I would like to see what is meant by “warhead”.

Well, we do know that the CIA - by way of Casey - was supplying terrorist materials to different parts of the world trough Jamaica.

Sounds like old NWO tricks.

Being parked in a Jamaican wharf doesn't necessarily mean they were destined for that nation ...

Were they discovered as a shipment for Jamaica or on their way to another port ?

Jamaica has a ban on reloaders?

I see Lee, Camdex and others can expect a US crackdown soon.

On a wharf in a barrel is all we have. I am assuming that the call for help from International authorities might be due to the location of the barrel, next to an international freighter..

I.fan easily understand secrecy needs, but I think in this particular case we’re mostly not seeing that:

What would you think of a “house producing machine” ? Or a “car fabricator unit”..?

Like the above a missile warhead consists of very many intricate subassemblies; even the best 3d printer would be hard pressed to make even a crude one.

Some journalist eager for a headline wrote this, and he has evenless weapons knowledge than 90% of his colleagues.

They found 3 crates of ammo and a die press - BIG DEAL.

I think there’s nothing to see here at all.

Maybe it’s just a high quality milling machine that can be used to mill some large caliber bullets or some parts of missiles.

This should be a huge story. They should be able to track its origin by looking at seeing where the ship has been and where it’s going. I’m thinking someone with a police agency has shut them up.

From the link provided at comment 17 Warheads found on wharf
"(Gun) ranges have applied over the years to get machines like this but the government would never allow it. It can be dangerous if it gets into the wrong hands."

I am inclined to think that this "machine" and the "warheads" found are for probably just a very large caliber munition.

Hey.....I got me one o’ them red “bullet making machines”! I also got one o’ them green powder scales you got sittin’ behind it , too! Great for making warheads!

If anyone wants to buy them, let me know. I have a barrel around here somewhere I could ship them in.

3300 in one barrel? More likely reloading equipment and supplies.

Even brain-dead journalists can identify a rocket launcher.

Obviously these are not “warheads”, whatever they are.

In looking for more information on this story...there seems to be one source, one article alone...the AP....

No other news source wants to confirm or flesh out the whole story...?

Makes the whole thing suspect...

The photo shows 9mm FMJ bullets, as in projectiles. Also about 12 pounds of lead ingots.

Ok, it’s probably large caliber ammo then. I wonder if it’s 50BMG?

If you are pro-war, in Jamaca they call you a warhead. So they seized 3000 pro-war people.

I think they seized RCBS multi-die presses. The Hornady single die is much too slow.

Mine came without the ratchet handle and all the missiles end up going sideways.
