    Yeah...and who exactly is going to be using these new weapons? There does not seem to be a sizeable developed Iraqi Military/Security/Police force as of yet...are these for US forces? Are they going to end up in the hands of the "insurgents"? Are we sending giant programmable robots?
    Does the US even care? or is this just another way to make a few bucks...yeah everyone knows that more dangerous and sophisticated weaponry always make somewhere safer....

    I see a pattern emerging. Lets sell Iraq some weapons, decide they are a threat, then destroy their weapons, only to sell em some more. maybe we can sell em some more in 10 years time?

    They need to install tracking devices in them, so the next time we accuse Iraq of having WMD (that we sold them in the first place), we will at least be able to find them!

    War really is a profitable commodity... for some.

    Hilarious.

    Haven't we had some bad experiences in the past with selling weapons to people we thought would be our friends forever and ever?
