I'm not sure what to think of this, but obviously it doesn't pass the sniff test. If it smells like explosives, it probably isn't for training purposes. The situation seems odd to me, and I think Serbian officials did the correct thing in intervening and removing the missiles. Lebanon: Missiles on Serbian flight bound for Oregon were for training If nothing else, it seems a very foolhardy move to shuttle military-style equipment that could cause alarm, through one or more foreign countries, without prior agreement or at least notice. If, as the article states, the equipment was being returned as agreed upon in advance by the United States and Lebanese officials, it seems odd that they wouldn't inform officials of any countries or territories through which the missiles would be traveling.
