Thousands of Military weapons missing in Iraq.

Where did the Iraqi guns go?

"The American military has not properly tracked hundreds of thousands of weapons intended for Iraqi security forces and has failed to provide spare parts, maintenance personnel or even repair manuals for most of the weapons given to the Iraqis, a federal report released Sunday has concluded."

Baghdad - The US government cannot account for 190 000 weapons issued to Iraqi security forces in 2004 and 2005, according to an investigation carried out by the Government Accountability Office.

According to the July 31 report, the military "cannot fully account for about 110 000 AK-47 assault rifles, 80 000 pistols, 135 000 items of body armour and 115 000 helmets reported as issued to Iraqi forces".

Apparently the US Commanders have been accusing others of supplying arms to the insurgents.. in a word.. whoops!! they have been supplying them themselves!

So now they are not only creating havoc by trying to 'fight' for peace but they are also managing to well arm their opponents! What a mess.

When ever will we learn? Fight creates fight, war creates war. Let us stop for one moment and consider what we are fighting within ourselves.
Stop the fight, and the resistance fades away.
Take at least this lesson from the war in Iraq. Let us learn from it to assist ourselves in our own lives.
