Either it's from a dead US soldier or it's supplied by someone else.
It's a M249 SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon) light machinegun, it shouldn't opperate much differently from a RPD that is common in Iraq so he definitly
has no combat experience or very little.
It's also interesting to note he has new balance shoes, shoes that aren't sold much outside the US (not in Europe anyway).
The other rifle is a M16 with a M203 grenade launcher, most likely these are ex-US military weapons, probably discarded by troops or left by dead
troops, either that or the CIA supplied it to them (which little people on this forum will believe ofcourse since we have such an honorable
the rifle propped up against the wall is a AKS-74U compact assuault rifle, nothing uncommon in Iraq really.
The shoes could have been picked up from a dead soldier's gear or a civilian's gear, but I wouldn't want to wear tennis shoes in a desert! but
perhaps it's his was of parading with the enemy's stuff so he can show others that he killed him, something many Afghani's did in the war against
Russia back in the 80's, they picked up AK-74's from dead Russian soldiers and they would get an elite status as soon as they had one, ammo would
bit a bit hard to comeby if you only use AK-47's though!
IMO, this is another smoking gun the CIA is behind Al-Qaida, Al Zarqawi and possibly 9/11, but that's just my humble opinion so don't even dare
flame me for it because that would be rude!
A real seasoned leader would have been an excellent fighter to have became a leader in the first place or otherwise loyalty would very hard to come
by, and would definitly be able to figure out how to fire a M249 and anyone should know that you don't grab a machinegun by the barrel and muzzle
control is also something they don't seem to care about, what the hell are they? actors?!
