    I just read those 2 fantastic (german) links on the homepage/online shop of my favourite video game store here in innsbruck

    to sum it up for the non german readers:

    the USAF sent spare parts from Eglin Air Force Base http://www.eglin.af.mil/ to Al Asad Airbase north of Baghdad, Iraq through FEDEX and it ends up in a video game store in Innsbruck Austria ?

    on one of the pictures you can see a suspicious red button on the box inside .. guess that explains why the US embassy sent the police over to pick it up after they got called by the shop ;)

    to quote the site:
    i wonder what guys in iraq thought when they got their box filled with video games instead of replacement parts with big red buttons

    Why not? They send soldiers and their weapons on commercial airlines. At least someone's getting much needed equipment.
