MANPADS to the people 

Little mentioned during the summit lovefest and the daily grind of news headlines, Venezuela acquired (it appears some time ago) a hundred or so IGLA-S. MANPADS are the greatest fear of an occupying power, but they are literally a weapon of last resort in a conventional war. (air defense should be handled by having air superiority, or at the very least SAM's of various ranges, if you are using MANPADS something went wrong).

The US under Bush made it their mission to have these weapons destroyed, they claimed it was because they feared terrorists would get their hands on them, but this is always their lame excuse.
