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.
