    I think he's on time and on target, myself. YMMV.

    Mmmm, business as usual.

    Personally I don't think its on the same level as divvying up the ME and doing deals to put some of these governments in place within these artificial boundaries. The US had zero to do with that.

    The US is of course a HUGE arms supplier to the region. Nice looking M1A1s on the streets of Cairo...

    Guilty as charged. What the **** do I know? Just my opinions and guesses...

    Here's to hoping these events happen for the better.

    Just as sexy as those Belgian made light machine guns, British made armored cars and Soviet made rifles.

    Egypt was buying tanks from the Soviets long before they bought tanks from the United States.

    One thing you have to give Iran is their ability to produce their own weapons. Not just rifles and machine guns either. I am especially impressed with their Silkworm clone.

    The Egyptians have been stamping out AK's for 30+/- years in their Soviet licensed weapons plant. Where do you think we got all those AK's for the Mujas?

    The left hijack's terms all the time. What's so surprising about them doing it to this term?
