The Reach of War

The U.S. Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction admits only 12,128 of the 505,093 weapons given to the Iraqis were properly recorded by serial number. These weapons include RPG's, assault rifles, MG's, shotguns and pistols. And sniper rifles.

In response to a previous posting I surmised that it's possible that U.S. forces trained the snipers targetting U.S. forces. Now its' apparent that U.S. forces are possibly providing the weapons, as well.

In my post, I recognized the killing hits versus U.S. personnel as 7.62 x 51 (Nato). This is the standard-issue U.S. sniper round.

RVN is looking like an exercize in sanity compared to U.S. gyrations in Iraq. It appears that U.S. tax dollars are arming and training the militias throughout the country.
