Reuters 6 hours ago
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department has approved the sale of 5,000 Hellfire missiles to Iraq as Baghdad tries to fend off militant
The deal is valued at $700 million, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said on Tuesday.
Iraq had requested 5,000 of the air-to-ground missiles, which are manufactured by Lockheed Martin Corp and enable helicopters to battle tanks and
other armored vehicles. Much smaller Hellfire shipments have already been sent to Iraq
hellfire missiles (@ $140k ea.) are not adaptable as RPGs or ManPADS....
but the thread consensus that these advanced missiles will find their way into the hands of the Caliphate is realistic
when ISIS does the regime change in Iraq....the copters & Jets will be available to ISIS....and the WH occupier will hold up a change-of-custody
graphic to show that the WH & the Muslim Brotherhood cabal in the Beltway are 'clean-as-a-whistle' about the arming of the Jihadists of ISIS...
the missile exchange is being Sanitized --- just as the Benghazi 'advanced arms' corridor was sanitized or had to be sanitized with the blood of 4
troopers & a ambassador and at least 2 or 3 top Generals that mutinied the outrageous WH orders
