My tin foil hat side wonders if this is the reason we suddenly became keen to normalize relations with the Castros.

I think it’s simply another money laundering vehicle to distribute taxpayer $$. Iran got 150Bil, Cuber could at least get 50Bil.
But it’s probably way too late for that to matter.

Let’s change that to a “World” being run by really stupid people 🚀
What the article describes is a dummy missile. It’s a 100lbs paperweight. Negotiating to get it back from Cuba at all is dumb. The only thing dumber was sending it from the US to Spain in the first place. They could have just borrowed one from US forces in Germany.

Actually, it’s the technology that this Hellfire missile contains that is vital and hopefully won’t be passed to our enemies.

According to the article, it doesn’t even have a seeker head with all the 1970’s technology it would contain. The only thing Cuba could learn from this is how the US keeps the missile from falling off its launcher. The scandal is they spent the money to ship it from the US to Spain instead of borrowing it from a unit in Germany then lost it on the way back. Oh, then they spent a year asking Cuba to send back a missile shaped hunk of metal. This isn’t a national security issue. This is the sort of thing you point and laugh at.
same kinda deal that got General Mike Moseley fired from the Air Force when they misplaced and misshipped a nuke device via air.
Any valuable information was passed to our enemies long ago.
Its already in the hands of one of our enemies, Cuba.

Things are so unbelievably stupid now, events such as these just fizzle out as we are all collectively shaking our heads saying Wha, huh? No way! And then think to ourselves no wonder we’re in the position we’re in with idiots like this running the show.
I do not believe the administration is stupid. I believe that everything they do has a purpose. To destroy the United States of America.
and to bankrupt the USA and tank the US dollar.
You say “stupid”, I say “Treason”.
Let’s call the whole thing off…

Aw! It was wrapped in a plain brown wrapper. Easy to mistake!
Actually, Spain’s military forces are rife with Cuban operatives.
Can Trump read my mind? I often wonder if the pukes in D.C. are really that stupid (Iran nuke deal). I never went to college and got everything I have by working my @as off but I honestly think I could do better than 90% of those bozos running our gov. Is it to soon to start counting day till D.T. takes the reigns?
Had read this earlier today, but not on FOX. I mean, it’s not like we don’t have actual military flights back & forth across the Atlantic everyday. The wonders of bureaucracy. Is it any mystery we’re broke ?
There really are a whole lot of stupid people within our midst. Unfortunately, many of them are voters.
Is it just me or does anyone else have a problem with an American missile being sent by FedEx or whoever? I always expected military hardware to be transported and handled by the military-especially if it was going overseas! Trump is right-we are a country lead by stupid people!
You’re not alone. Stuff like this always used to go milair.
amazon will begin delivering American missiles to your home via drones in the near future.
Lost Luggage – really bad.
But it apparently had no explosives – If it did I would worry about them sending it back.
Stupid is the most excellent description, but unfortunately unmitigated evil is probably closer to reality today. Obama, I read, is positioning himself to become head of the UN. Let’s help him resign early — or be impeached for so much illegality — and then send the UN to where the U.S. sun don’t shine.
That might not be a bad thing.
It might motivate the U.S. public to insist on getting the U.S. out of the U.N, and the U.N. out of the U.S.
Man I actually had a dream about that last night! The UN building was discovered to have foundation damages and needed complete overhaul. So the whole UN had to move to London. Then Trump corporation made the building beautiful, but decided to utilize it for the USA instead of the UN, so that had to stay in London in an old worn down building, but nearer to all the Moslems so dear to their hearts!
I know I know…weird dream…
It was because I couldn’t get “the wheels of the bus go thwap thwap thwap” song outta my head…
I’ve long felt that the UN should be based someplace else, Equatorial Guinea, Kyrgyzstan etc. since it functions as a safe house for the worst on the planet. But yeah, one of those brutal London neighborhoods would work also.
He’s after One World Order.
Even though the explosive warhead was not installed the remains would reveal years of hard earned guidance and control expertise. You can bet your bottom dollar this has been examined thoroughly.
Wonder what was packed inside where the warhead woulda been? Some new drug, packaged all nice and neat?
Obama’s real birth certificate. LOL
I think it was sent there on purpose, disguised as an accident. Why not? Cuba deserves our technology cuz we’ve been meanies and this is just a little spreading of the wealth. Perhaps it gives Cuba leverage to get Gitmo back. He wants to give Gitmo back. So, send them some leverage. Viva La Cuba or whatever.
That reminds me of when Bill Clinton said there shouldn’t be only one superpower and let Loral give technology to China…a move that was greased by donations to the totally shameless Clintons.
I doubt this was a stupid mistake. At the time the Hellfire was sent, anything going to Cuba required a number of bureaucratic permissions and paprwork. Someone powerful wanted the Hellfire to go to Cuba. I smell treason, not stupidity.

Remember the drone in Iran? I’ll bet this is another “mistake” like that probably was.
Please kindly excuse my longer post, but when people ignore the larger picture like dealing with Cuba and the Castros, which Mr. Trump would sink his teeth into tightly, it shows how too many people are easily offended personally by the Donald instead recognizing him for the warrior of the people that he is.
An example. Recently, on Rush Limbaugh, a woman from Montana called in and said she supports Mr. Trump, but that some of her family members did not like him at all.
Their complaints, she recounted, were that Mr. Trump was “rough around the edges, unpredictable” and that his “presentation” was extremely unlikable.
Rush completely defended Mr. Trump, especially when his caller said that her family probably didn’t like his “morals.” Rush replied, “What about the Clintons’ morals?”
Rush took Mr. Trump’s side on several other points after she hung up, but what he could have said as well was:
“We NEED someone who is rough around the edges.”
“We NEED someone who is unpredictable.”
“We NEED someone who doesn’t have the ‘right’ presentation.”
Mr. Trump has already alluded to past leaders who have this entire package and there is a reason for him doing so. He uncompromisingly compares himself to men like generals George Patton and Douglas Mac Arthur. And let’s throw one more into the mix, J. Edgar Hoover.
All were blunt, rough talking, unpredictable and didn’t ‘talk right.’ There was a bottom line, to get things done and do it the right way, regardless of what people said. All great leaders, from Alexander the Great, Napoleon and Winston Churchill had these qualities. It’s what makes them leaders and not followers.
Leaders are born to lead, while followers want to corrupt their leadership.
Mr. Trump shines when he’s rough around the edges and tells George Stephanopoulos, “But you wouldn’t know anything about that, would you, George?” Or especially that Mr. Clinton is “one of the great all time abusers of women.”
And, not desiring to be “predictable” when it comes to how Mr. Trump would handle certain foreign affairs or sensitive nuclear matters is a smart thing, don’t you think?
Mr. Trump doesn’t “talk right” and his “presentation” doesn’t jive because he is not corrupted as a politician. Within the political petri dish this is dangerous. If a cancerous “outsider” cell forms, then the establishment anti-bodies must attack and destroy the invader. It’s in their DNA.
We supporters like how Mr. Trump talks just fine. We know that he talks in a normal, non-cardboard-like manner, as if he’s with us in our living room. It sounds even better when it’s presented to 15,000 admirers in Biloxi or Beaumont.
Someone who is polished, predictable and has a glossy presentation = POLITICIAN. (Ex. Mr. Rubio)
Seriously, do we WANT another one of these in the White House? Or do we NEED Mr. Trump to change his address to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?
Every great story, book, movie or otherwise has a lead character who starts out having a WANT, but in the end discovers what he/she really NEEDS. These are exciting times and Mr. Trump’s story is no different. We are being included as part of his narrative as America discovers in conclusion what she NEEDS.
Next time somebody conjures that Mr. Trump sounds unpredictable, coarse, doesn’t talk right and can’t handle the scruffy Castro brothers, run that up their flag pole.
Their complaints, she recounted, were that Mr. Trump was “rough around the edges, unpredictable” and that his “presentation” was extremely unlikeable.
Somehow, Hillary is behind this, somehow..someway
WHAT?!? – The State Department will not deny they sold the missile to Cuba: http://www.weaselzippers.us/249844-state-dept-will-not-deny-they-sold-hellfire-missile-to-cuba/
Yep, just shaking my head. Stupid is as stupid does!
Obummer is consistent. He consistently negotiates with our enemies to the detriment of America’s well being.
Incompetent and stupid people running our country speak polititalk, which by its nature, is intentionally designed to sound as if the person(s) using it is smart. Much of polititalk is what we older folks would term double-speak: linguistical convolutions designed to be interpreted multiple ways. Obama’s speech writers have always been masters at this! Remember how the msm hailed him as such a brilliant orator during his first term? Oh, he was such a brilliant fellow until the teleprompter glitches!
I hope voters are finally realizing that being a smooth talker doesn’t necessarily mean brilliant, competent, or even common sensical! I’ll take a good do’er over a slick talker any day!!
If only the Republicans and the NRA would agree to commonsense missile laws. Close the missile show loophole. Expanded background checks. No more online missile sales.
In the photo accompanying this post, did you notice that CNN put its ticker line over the Trump logo on the aircraft behind him?
That was at the CNN Debate at the Reagan Library in front of a former Air Force One, not TRUMP’s plane.
It was the PERFECT backdrop for TRUMP. It made you think TRUMP Force One the minute you saw it, and all night long.
Just another shipping accident…
