Chinese man admits plot to import missiles to US

I'm not a lawyer but that sounds like it might be illegal.

A Chinese national living in Southern California admitted on Wednesday trying to arrange the sale from China to the United States of 200 shoulder-fired missiles that can be used to bring down airplanes.

In all fairness they were just for a New Years celebration to ring in the Year of the Asshole.

Chao Tung Wu, 51, pleaded guilty in Los Angeles federal court to conspiring to import the missiles for a buyer who turned out to be an undercover FBI agent.

What would an undercover FBI agent want with shoulder-fired missiles? Oh I see, it was a set-up. Clever. So, does the FBI make a habit of asking random people if they could smuggle shoulder-fired missiles into the country?
