New Iraqi army to add Kalashnikovs to its arsenal?

The US administration in Iraq is contemplating arming the new Iraqi army with Kalashnikov assault rifles, a weapon that has long become the symbol of reliability and quality in all kinds of conditions, reported Egypt's MENA news agency.

The idea is all the more sensible since Iraqi soldiers are well accustomed to this type of weapon.

According to MENA, Poland, a country that has a military contingent in Iraq, has already proposed a deal to the US, saying one of its companies specializing in weapon exports was ready to provide Iraq with 43,000 AK-47C assault rifles.
