The Cuban Sugar Missile Crisis: More hidden Cuban weapons found on North Korean freighter

How many licks does it take to get to the center of the Castro regime's arms smuggling scandal? We are still counting.

Via the Daily Mail:

Panama discovers MORE fighter jet engines and military vehicles on the seized boat taking obsolete weapons from Cuba to North Korea

Panamanian investigators unloading the cargo of a seized North Korean ship carrying arms from Cuba under sacks of brown sugar found yet more military hardware on Tuesday.

The authorities discovered 12 engines for MiG-21 fighter jets and five military vehicles that officials said resembled missile control centers.

Investigators earlier in July had found two MiG-21 fighters and two missile radar systems on board the Chong Chon Gang, which was bound for secretive North Korea when it was stopped by officials.

    OK, here's the scoop. All the military hardware was meant to be turned into a gigantic anti-war monument in Pyongyang. It was going to be this huge pile, see, of military shit left to rust and decay in plain sight, to symbolize the futility of warfare. Some North Korean artist or other was going to become world-famous for the idea (though of course he'd have to say he was inspired by Dear Leader). So there you have it. Move along.

    No, actually, all that military hardware was just ballast for the ship.

    It was an art project, I tell you. The North Korean version of Picasso's "Guernica." As usual, I'm surrounded by troglodytes who just don't get modern art.

    Didn't some Cuban expert [I think that it was Phil Peters] say that we're essentially making a mountain out of a mole hill? Something to the effect that this is inconsequential, unimportant and none of that "OUTDATED" {I think that was the word}, military equipment is going to be used for any military purpose of any importance. Gee whiz, you chihuahuas are something else! There are other more important stories out of Cuba that we should be concerned with like giant bicycles, men with 12 fingers, and old black ladies with cigars in their mouths!

  • ranavy33

    Yes, it was Phil Peters. On The Cuban Triangle blog. Big apologist for the Cuban Regime. Everything wrong there is OUR fault.

    Asombra, I like the way you think (and who the hell are you?).
