Musings 143--200,000 Rifles

Every day there is more death and destruction news from Iraq. More than 2,400 American soldiers have given their life for Bush's War, and there is no end in sight.

Now it seems that this job will be somewhat harder due to the fact that the bad guys now seemed to have picked the Defense Department's pocket.

It is being reported by the United Kingdom that 200,000 AK47's taken from soldiers in Bosnia were to be shipped to Iraq by the Defense Department to arm Iraqi soldiers and police. Well, it seems that no one knows where these rifles went. They just vanished. (See Link)

A Moldovan airline that got in trouble with the United Nations in 2003 for flying arms to Liberia is reportedly responsible for making delivery of the AK47's. There were four plane loads that just disappeared into neverland. Some are betting that Osama and his boys got the guns. That is a nice haul, if it is true.

It seems that our Defense Department has a lot of trouble in doing the simplest things. If the Brit report is correct; then, the bad guys now have plenty of fire power to keep blasting away at our soldiers.

An investigation needs to be done by Congress into whether this is true. If it is, heads need to roll. Somebody has to take some responsibility. My vote goes to Don Rumsfeld.

Rumsfeld and his lackeys at defense, need to take a hike. If Bush doesn't make him go soon, Iraq will be a lost cause for all time. Come on, Bush jr....make the needed changes. Do the right thing.
