    can anyone guess where are these metals coming from??

    To Patriot: I thought the terrorists in the former war zone used plastic "C" explosives to make bombs against security forces not metal and copper.

    If these items are prohibited for export, then there is no question. Arresting the guilty is simple too, look at the BL the exporters name is in there,bold as ever. So what are the customs people waiting for? Another h- - d out?!!!!!!!!!!!
    It is easy to blame the govt., to be fair I don't think the powers of the nation is behind this one or it would have passed undetected.
