Ar [fi] trebui[t] să invadăm şi noi două – trei ţări. Ne-a pus dracul de am intrat în NATO… Cred că acum este cam târziu, dar până ce vecinii noştri să primească onoarea de a deveni vasalii SUA, ar fi trebuit să profităm de ei. Ca între vecini. După care, transformându-i în pieţe pentru produsele noastre, ne făceam mai graşi.

Lăsând de-o parte gândurile model jocul „Hearts of Iron”, să trecem la ştire:

BAGHDAD – Soldiers serving on Camp Taji, Iraq, trained Iraqi troops on the fundamentals of marksmanship with the M-16 rifle, June 15. The training was part of a continued effort by the U.S. to phase out the Iraqi Army’s use of the Soviet-era AK-47 Kalashnikov assault rifle.

……….

On Camp Taji it was all smiles from the Iraqi troops, as the U.S. Soldiers walked them through the basics of firing the M-16.

„For their first time, they shot very well – even compared to some U.S. Soldiers,” said Sgt. Kevin Averre, the noncommissioned officer in charge of the training. Averre is assigned to the Combat Aviation Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, serving as a battle NCO in the brigade’s tactical operations center.

In 2003, Averre served with Iraqi Security Forces as an infantryman assigned to the 4th Infantry Division.

„Even in 2003 they spoke very highly of the M-16’s accuracy,” said Averre.

The training focused primarily on „zeroing” the weapons, a process by which Soldiers adjust the weapon’s sights to align with their eyesight. The Iraqi soldiers also received instruction on weapons maintenance, something seldom necessary with the durable AK-47.
