US Concerns Over China Weapons In Iraq

I wonder how many US weapons are in the hands of Iraqi insurgents.

The US has raised concerns with the Chinese government about the discovery of Chinese-made weapons in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Yea stop making weapons!

Richard Lawless, departing senior Pentagon official for Asia, on Friday said Washington had flagged the issue with Beijing. In recent months, the US has become increasingly alarmed that Chinese armour-piercing ammunition has been used by the Taliban in Afghanistan and insurgents in Iraq.

The greatest last name in the history of Pentagon officials. Lawless. You just can't write shit like that.

A senior US official recently told the FT that Iran appeared to be providing the Chinese-made weapons.

Boy, weapons sure do get around don't they? Wish I was a weapon. I like to travel. Although I'd prefer to wind up somewhere tropical where I can be used to kill people on a beach.

He said Washington had no evidence that Beijing was complicit, but stressed that the US would like China to “do a better job of policing these sales”. Mr Lawless said the question of origin was less important than who was facilitating the transfer.

Coming from a country that has given weapons to pretty much anyone with money.
