From across the pond, comes a very disturbing story, apparently the US was shipping 200K AK 47's to Iraq, and somehow it is now missing... http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/tm_obj...the-hands-of-iraq-terrorists---name_page.html HAVE 200,000 AK47S FALLEN INTO THE HANDS OF IRAQ TERRORISTS? FEARS OVER SECRET U.S. ARMS SHIPMENT SOME 200,000 guns the US sent to Iraqi security forces may have been smuggled to terrorists, it was feared yesterday. The 99-tonne cache of AK47s was to have been secretly flown out from a US base in Bosnia. But the four planeloads of arms have vanished. Orders for the deal to go ahead were given by the US Department of Defense. But the work was contracted out via a complex web of private arms traders. And the Moldovan airline used to transport the shipment was blasted by the UN in 2003 for smuggling arms to Liberia, human rights group Amnesty has discovered. It follows a separate probe claiming that thousands of guns meant for Iraq's police and army instead went to al-Qaeda Amnesty chief spokesman Mike Blakemore said: "It's unbelievable that no one can account for 200,000 assault rifles. If these weapons have gone missing it's a terrifying prospect." American defence chiefs hired a US firm to take the guns, from the 90s Bosnian war, to Iraq.
