    Who builds them? "Us" or "them"?

    I see there are models that are laser guided or even remotely guided, but they seem to require a lot of training and are built by "us" so we're not as likely to come up against them. The soviet stuff seemed to be IR. But that was on a very quick read. I could be overlooking something.

      We were selling Stingers to the Afghans back when they were fighting the Russians.

        Yes, I knew we were providing them. Had no idea it was that many. All hush hush at the time, of course. Game changer.
