American military giving Iraqi soldiers 165,000 M-16's.

In a move that could be the most enduring imprint of U.S. influence in the Arab world, American military officials in Baghdad have begun a crash program to outfit the entire Iraqi army with M-16 rifles.

Imagine if, after defeating Japan in WWII, the U.S. military trained every Japanese soldier in our military tactics, and handed them our latest rifle.  That would be insane, right?  Right?

    They give them m16, so they can’t shoot at US soldiers any more. Or it is a punishment for bad behaviour. Or a test: if someone would really want to shoot anything, he/she would refuse and keep his/her AK-47
