My personal hypothetical analysis:

Seriously, have anyone here ever considered the possibility that the missiles
are on a some sort of a covert and secretive round trip to some US ally and/or collaborator somewhere in the globe
and that it's in breach, possibly, of some kinda signatory restrictions?

As Japan and South Korea likely already fields them, I suspect

it's secretly heading for Nam and Pinnoyland. Not a far fetched hypothesis given the bickerings going on

in the South China Sea. I mean it's as if we needed the technology...

What thinks ya, Guys?

As follow:

Finland 'findsPatriot missiles' on China-bound ship

The Thor Liberty is docked in Kotka The Finnish authorities have impounded an Isle of Man-flagged ship bound for China with undeclared missiles and explosives, officials say. Police are questionin the crew of the MS Thor Liberty after what were described as 69 Patriot anti-missile missiles were found aboard.

Interior Minister Paivi Rasanen said the missiles were marked "fireworks". The MS Thor Liberty had docked in the Finnish port of Kotka after leaving Germany last week. Dock workers became suspicious after finding explosives poorly stored on open pallets, and the missiles were then found in containers marked "fireworks".

The managing director of the ship's owner, Thorco Shipping, expressed surprise. Thomas Mikkelsen told AFP news agency from denmark that he was unaware of the matter. Another company official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the ship had been detained in Finland and said the missiles could have been loaded on to the vessel by mistake, AFP adds. Police did not confirm Finnish media reports that the ship had also been scheduled to stop in South Korea, Reuters news agency reports.'Quite unusual' The MS Thor Liberty left port in Emden, northern Germany, on 13 December and docked two days later in Kotka, southern Finland, to pick up a cargo of anchor chains, said Finnish Customs spokesman Petri Lounatmaa.

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

This is an old story that was on Pravda forum, missing in this version that there was a crate opened and some missiles missing from the empty box.
