Surge me once, shame on you. Surge me twice...

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Iraqis will continue to murder each other until one day either weapons run out or they run out. They they will hug each other and mourn over their stupidity.

Sooner the better. They had better be careful though... Iran has gotten quite good at prolonging pointless strife to it's percieved advantage.

I hope one can hold dialouge with these blinded people and clear out differences among them. The stupid shia sunni conflict dates back 14 centuries and its totally pointless now as well wrong. Many youth involved in slaughter of each other dont even know why they are doing this. Hope someone can bring them to light that pleasing their immams or mullahs is not gonna serve anyones intrest neither betterment of their own.

Their weapons won't run out. We have given them enough weapons to kill each other 10 times over.

And by the way, 190,000 AK47s that WE gave the Iraqi's are unaccounted for. So besides the piss poor planning of the war, apparently we can't even run the Quartermaster's Armory for shit.

And why are we giving them Eastern Bloc weapons. American Jobs would have appreciated the work.

Because AK47s are robust and reliable and will continue to work even after being dropped in sand.

South African and Rhodesian forces used to refer to the AK47 as being "kaffir-proof"

That's why there are millions of them, the perfect gun for war, no technology that isn't essential.

So we continue to say we have nothing to do with arming the rag heads. It will not make a good photo op if the crowd firing M-16 into the air. Most Americans even consider the M-16 is the weapon of choice for the good guys and only bad guys use AK-47.

It's true, "You'll never get to heaven with an AK 47"
