Amazing how a missile thats 3m long gets through our illustrious ISF for el da7ieh yet they are able to catch a huge arms dealer who is selling 7.6mm boxes of amo that will undoubtedly be used mostly for weddings and other occasions where one idiot will fire at random only to hurt someone who has no clue what got him shot!
