Going, going, gone .... to the highest bidders thirsting for infidel blood.
Don't you find it hilarious that the Judeo-Christians countries spent billions of dollars in arming the rebels in Libya with the most sophisticated weapons and by doing so started an underground black market in stolen arsenal? Now, how about adding the arms supplied to Syrian rebels (of course, they have been getting all sort of weaponry from the West.

......The New York Times reported in December 2012 that the Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar, only to express alarm when evidence mounted that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants.
Qatar, strong supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, may well have been playing both sides of the game, as the U.S official strongly hinted to The New York Times. The weapons being auctioned in the Sinai desert almost certainly include many sent by Qatar to Libya, a disturbing consequence that had been flagged early by some American officials....
