We’ve shared multiple reports of the Surface to Air Missiles (SAM’s) being spread throughout N-Africa by al-Qaeda and the al-Shabaab faction. 20 thousand advanced technology missiles is enough to place a no fly zone over all of europe if strategically placed. In addition from the al-Shabaab branch of Somali al-Qaeda members have been arrested crossing the border from Mexico into the United States. There is a known and significant al-Shabaab presence currently training in Mexico – this same group has been identified with Stinger missiles in N-Africa stolen from Libya… There may soon be a No-Fly Zone over the Western United States….
(CNN) — A potent stash of Russian-made surface-to-air missiles is missing from a huge Tripoli weapons warehouse amid reports of weapons looting across war-torn Libya. They are Grinch SA-24 shoulder-launched missiles, also known as Igla-S missiles, the equivalent of U.S.-made Stinger missiles.
The list for one box, for example, written in English and Russian, said it had contained two missiles, with inventory number “Missile 9M342,” and a power source, inventory number “Article 9B238.”
Grinch SA-24s are designed to target front-line aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles and drones. They can shoot down a plane flying as high as 11,000 feet and can travel 19,000 feet straight out.
Peter Bouckaert, Human Rights Watch emergencies director, told CNN he has seen the same pattern in armories looted elsewhere in Libya, noting that “in every city we arrive, the first thing to disappear are the surface-to-air missiles.”
He said such missiles can fetch many thousands of dollars on the black market.
“We are talking about some 20,000 surface-to-air missiles in all of Libya, and I’ve seen cars packed with them.” he said. “They could turn all of North Africa into a no-fly zone.” (read more)
Read that quote again, except this time we will replace the word “Africa” with “America“:
“We are talking about some 20,000 surface-to-air missiles in all of Libya, and I’ve seen cars packed with them.” he said. “They could turn all of North America into a no-fly zone.” Think about that for a few moments……..
