Well, now we're replacing everything we destroyed and scrapped with shiny new equipment.

It's called culling. Out with the old, in with the new. Whatever they choose to do, at least now it's their choice.

Guess they're getting a mixed bag of equipment. Not bad combinations either. Personally, though, I still think that the US should supply them with the bulk of their hardware. After all, we were the ones that destroyed what they had.

Yeah I thought it was odd they were being equipted with AK-47's I thought we would at least give them some guns that the last administration of Iraq hadn't used.

AK-47's are good weapons, they dont need any better.

I tend to agree. All of them are familiar with it. And it is a good rifle, that fits an army that dose not maintain its weapons often.
