#1 I just used Google to try to find out what a "Lau" missile was and was unsuccessful after three pages, partly because it's used as a US military designation for a wide variety of bolt-to-the-airframe missile launchers for aircraft.

#2 Could be a misspell. Have a look at LAR.

#3 Could also be a misspell of LAW (M-72 Light Antitank Weapon). Vietnam era but I understand they have started making them again for use against personnel.

#4 LAW does sound more likely.

#5 Possibly from old South Lebanon Army stocks?

#6 Trying to picture the reaction from the islamonuts when they find out the weapons they held in their hands were touched by the cootie-laden juices.

#7 If they're pros, they're probably laughing about it.

If the weapons get found before they're used, it's the Israelis' fault.

If they don't, they get used against Assad, and it's still the Israelis' fault if someone finds out about it.

No downside.
