Among these are 12000 AK-47 rifles costing 520 dollars per gun, 3000 RPG-7 launchers costing 3300 dollars per launcher, 3500 DShK heavy machine guns costing 17000 dollars per gun, 6000 PK machine guns costing 3400 dollars per gun, 80 82 mm mortars costing 4300 dollars per mortar, 80 120 mm mortars costing 15000 dollars per mortar, 80 60 mm mortars costing 4100 dollars per mortar, 1000 AT4 and SPG9 recoilless launchers costing 5300 dollars per launcher. Note that all of these are Russian hardware with the exception of AT4 which is Swedish and 60 mm mortar which is possibly American. Now with such a huge amount of military hardware, SDF should be able to take Raqqa and then go for Deir es Zor.

Didn't trump sign a deal with several arab counties in which they pledge to field 30k arab troops. What if this stuff is for them?

"SDF" . Is that the latest acronym for international terrosim? "Syrian" Democratic 'Forces' are not made up of Syrians.

Neither are they democratic, being they are illegally invading Syria in violation of International law.

US EU, (NATO), Hiding behind Acronyms and gentle euphemisms denotes the real intent... another Coup directed at another sovereign ME nation.

More truckloads of arms means more war, not "democracy".

Typical military acquisition where everything cost at least 30% more than the going rate ! I wonder how many hands were greased in this purchase ? Any of us who know just a little bit about arms could have gone to an eastern block country (Hungarian AKs are great) and made a much better deal than this mess.

America doing what it does best, destabilizing regions then profiting off of the chaos we leave behind.

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God" doesn't seem to apply to America at all. Seems like we're children of the devil with the amount of war we wage and fund.

But I see Trump is making the same moves as previous administrations again. I wonder why people think he is different?

this seemed more appropriate...

good thing Trump is anti establishment.
thanks Obama...

is SDF the moderate rebels? I assume that calling them moderate rebels means that they are only moderately rebellious terrorists as compared to the radically rebellious terrorists known as ISIS.
