    Jesus- what was the plan for these?

    Bomb-sniffing dog discovers 2 Hellfire missiles bound for Portland

    [​IMG]
    BELGRADE, Serbia — Serbia's authorities are investigating reports that a cargo package bound for Portland contained two missiles with explosive warheads on a passenger flight from Lebanon.

    N1 television said the package with two guided armor-piercing missiles was discovered Saturday by a sniffer dog after an Air Serbia flight from Beirut landed at a Belgrade airport.

    Serbian media say documents listed the final destination for the AGM-114 Hellfire missiles as Portland. The American-made projectiles can be fired from air, sea or ground platforms against multiple targets.

    The Serbian state news agency Tanjug reported that the missiles had been packed in wooden coffins and unloaded at the Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, where they were inspected by bomb-sniffing dogs.

    This type of missile was originally designed to be fired from a helicopter and was named Helicopter Launched, Fire and Forget Missile -- later shortened to Hellfire.

    The AGM-114 model is manufactured by Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Northrup Grumman. It weighs about 100 pounds and costs about $110,000 apiece. Most models use laser to home in on their targets, although one version of the AGM-114 relies on radar.

    The FBI in Portland said it is looking into the reports.

    "We don't have any information on that yet," Jennifer Adams, an FBI spokeswoman, said Sunday afternoon.

    N1 reported Sunday that Air Serbia is helping in the investigation. The Serbian flag carrier says "security and safety are the main priorities for Air Serbia."

    Portland censures Donald Trump's stance on Muslim immigration
    [​IMG]
    Presidential candidate Donald Trump's call for a "total and complete shutdown" of Muslim immigration into the United States received a symbolic but stern admonishment Wednesday from the Portland City Council.

    Although city leaders clearly took aim at Trump, the City Council softened its position to make sure city staff did not run afoul of state elections law by politically advocating against the 2016 Republican frontrunner.

    "This is a time where there is poisonous speech in national politics, Mr. Trump in particular," Mayor Charlie Hales said, "and where we need to stand on behalf of the values that this city loves."

    The City Council voted unanimously in support of a resolution that declared "support for the city's Muslim community" and reaffirmed "Portland's welcoming nature for all immigrants and refugees."

    Commissioner Amanda Fritz said the resolution, approved just nine days after Trump's comments, had been "inspired by a particular candidate," drawing chuckles from some in the crowd.

    Other politicians from around the country have denounced Trump's stance, including the St. Paul, Minnesota, City Council, which approved a similar resolution Wednesday.

    "Presidential candidates have the right to say dumb things," Commissioner Nick Fish said. "We have the right to censure them for it."

    "Presidential candidates have the right to say dumb things. We have the right to censure them for it" -- Nick Fish
    More than a dozen community members testified in support of the resolution as others held paper signs stating "Stop profiling Muslims."

    Ali Houdroge, a founding member of the Islamic Center of Portland, said the City Council's action will help Muslims "feel at peace here in Portland."

    After the vote, some in the audience of about 50 stood to applaud.

    I live in Portland
    What used to be a cool fun city has spiraled into a liberal walked out wasteland. I'll save you the headaches of examples but this city is so fucked.

    "Air Serbia" sounds like something that should not be.

    Stuff posted on this board often comes from dubious sources, such as conservative treehouse, or World News Daily. Once in a while, if you wait, it comes up in the mainstream press. The story about the guy who rushed Trump being affiliated with ISIS turned out to be BS, I think it was from the same source.
