Two lafrge shipping containers, stamped with the words “Contains: Guided Missile,” were discovered in the Pacific Ocean near Alaska Sunday.

Alaska State Troopers said the containers were empty, and information from tags attached to the boxes was sent to the U.S. military. There was no immediate public comment from military officials.

Is this normal military protocol to throw these boxes in the ocean?

Maybe they fell overboard off a Navy ship?

ISIS about to shoot down an airliner?

Sarah Palin just having some target practice fun?

Troopers say an explosives ordinance team helped determine the boxes were "void of their original contents."


Well thank GOODNESS for their expertise!!!!

I would assume it isn't normal protocol to throw away these containers.
I have bought used military equipment before,such as duffel bags and
whatever.

They were from the 70s and 80s


I think it's probably likely that these are remnants from one of the several military sites in the area, this is the most rational explanation.

Perhaps discarded during the Northern Edge war games which were held in June of last year.

Sounds plausible but I imagine they are not supposed to discard garbage in the ocean.

On April 15, federal prosecutors announced that Princess Cruise Lines had pleaded guilty to illegal ocean dumping and would be fined $500,000.

Late at night, during a 1991 cruise, crew members tossed 20 bags of plastic trash into waters off the Florida coast. A passenger recorded the incident on videotape.

But even as environmentalists and congressional leaders praised the tough prosecution, sailors on U.S. Navy ships were throwing hundreds of bags containing the same kind of garbage into oceans all over the world and sailing away scot-free.

Protected by exemptions in federal laws, the Navy estimates its 452 ships will dump about 1.2 million pounds of plastic overboard this year - trash that private vessels must keep on board.

"The Navy is being a good steward of the environment," said spokeswoman Lt. Jackie Yost. "We're trying to lead the way."

That is pretty distressing, between that and high energy sonar they seem to be trying to destroy what is left in the ocean.

This might shed some light on the origin of that giant island of plastic in the Pacific.

Probably military surplus containers? Someone on an on line newspaper comments section thinks he recognises them as AIM-54 Phoenix transport and storage containers. When the missiles were retired the likes of the storage containers would be sold off as surplus. Probably lost or fallen off a fishing vessel using them as storage? The military sell off all sorts of surplus containers.
