    Okay, I've put Egypt into the same bucket as Syria and Somalia. No Go.
    The TLDR version:
    An Egyptian guy is driving to work and notices an expended anti-aircraft missile launcher on the road going around Cairo Airport.
    He reports it and also posts a video on his Facebook page.
    The Egyptian government goes full infowar on this guy...and he disappears.

    Then, these guys get ahold of the story. It makes for an interesting read....and a reason to worry.

    It looks like a SA-7 type gizmo.

    Interesting, but the article said the video disappeared, not the guy.

    Could be two different videos, taken at different times. Copycat propaganda?

    There are some reasonably well grounded people here in the U.S. with knowledge of such things who have been concerned for a couple of years that there is a possibility that a MANPAD could be used near a domestic airport. I do not doubt that in the Middle East it would be appreciably more likely.

    Now the article disappeared. I'm getting worried.

    At first I though Alex Jones bought a condo by the airport, ha!

    But seriously. I'm actually surprised something like that hasn't already been deployed in a terror attack here, or in Europe.
