#1 Interesting. Wonder what the source was. Is Eric Holder running weapons to the Paleos now?

Lots of countries (and some movements) got US weapons back during the Cold War.

The other weapons supply route would be through the Red Sea, up through Sudan. It's also possible that the weapons were purchased from black markets in Europe (Rotterdam is one likely place) with weapons from European or South American stocks or black markets in Western Asia supplied from countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan.

I'm leaning toward Egypt-supplied weapons myself.

The other sources would be former US-backed or fallen US-backed governments, like Iraq.
