  1. Now I know the Chinese take their fireworks seriously and all that but this is very peculiar indeed. Suspect "fireworks" shipment bound for China is stopped by Finnish authorities. It turns out to be 69 US made Patriot anti-missile missiles (and a fairly considerable amount of explosives) that are apparently only supplied to allies of the US. Probably not something they'd want to give to China then but the article suggests that the ship was potentially stopping in South Korea first.
