The US military cannot account for 190,000 AK-47 assault rifles and pistols given to the Iraqi security forces, an official US report says.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) says the Pentagon cannot track about 30% of the weapons distributed in Iraq over the past three years. Correspondents say it is now feared many of the weapons are being used against US forces on the ground in Iraq.
Missing in Iraq:
AK-47 rifles: 110,000
Body armour pieces: 135,000

Remember the American choppers shot down in Iraq killing scores of American servicemen? Yes. Stinger missiles! Made in America! Remember the millions, yes, millions of weapons issued to the mujahideen in Afghanistan against the Soviet troops in the 80s? They're still using them against coalition forces there and elsewhere.

I have to ask how you can still stand by this gross incompetence with no penalties or oversight from all of these private institutions. And just try to come up with excuse after excuse.
Deltaboy, you have to face this sooner or later. You got duped and this chaos is used for thefting this country of people "disguised" as Americans. But they aren't americans. Robber Baron Mercenaries who are thefting every nook and cranny of this country.
And this is just another example of the craziness of what happens when you listen to the war drums of King George. Enough is enough,Deltaboy. We got people working 3 shifts here in America. While thes useless Parasites are thefting billions from duffel bags at airports with no arrests, no firings and no Trials.
You and many other believers were duped into initating all of this theft from people who sold you this War based on a theatrical veiled stage of "Democracy" for Iraq. We arent gaining anything from this except the destruction of America as a nation.
Look at Wallstreet Friday. The American Dream has now begun to rapidly descend. And there is no excuse you will be able to counter with the evidence mounting and creeping all around you. It's time for you to stop marching,DeltaBoy. You are going to have to eventually. And these cache of weapons missing is such a devasting blow to Americans not being able to manage a occupation on a whole country.
