From the Telegraph A cruise missile in a shipping box on sale to rogue bidders Defence experts are warning of a new danger of ballistic weapons proliferation after a Russian company started marketing a cruise missile that can be launched from a shipping container. Reuben Johnson, a Pentagon defence consultant, said the system would be a "real maritime fear for anyone with a waterfront". "This is ballistic missile proliferation on a scale we have not seen before because now you cannot readily identify what's being used as a launcher because it's very carefully disguised. "Someone could sail off your shore looking innocuous then the next minute big explosions are going off at your military installations." Ignoring the "ballistic" point above, is this a serious development or one that was patently bleedin' obvious to anybody who'd given the matter some thought? Is it feasible that someone could sail into the Forth Estuary and lob a few off at Rosyth and Grangemouth refinery?
