Sometimes you just have to laugh

So, in an effort to arm the 'good guys' in Iraq, the Americans bought weapons in Bosnia (lots of weapons there) and arranged to have them shipped to Iraq on airplanes- airplanes owned by a well-known international gun smuggler and arms merchant.

And guess what- the weapons never made it to Iraq- or at least, the 'good guys' say they never got them.

Which might explain why the 'good guys' turned to the Italian mafia to help them buy black-market AK-47s About 200,000 of them.

At this point it's easy to do a cocktail napkin calculation that there must be about a million military weapons adrift in Iraq today.

Fort Apache was never like this.
