"Arms and ordnance collected from dead insurgents hint at one possible reason: Of 30 rifle magazines recently taken from insurgentsí corpses, at least 17 contained cartridges, or rounds, identical to ammunition the United States had provided to Afghan government forces, according to an examination of ammunition markings by The New York Times and interviews with American officers and arms dealers."

I say any support tibet gets is needed in any way they can. China is the terroist. Us owes half of the US to them so guess what we are a terrorist to tibet to. They asked us for help and we refused becasue we could not deal with fighting with China. Tibet is the most spiritual country in the world. China is trying to take that from them them. When two countries sleep together what will they say about each other. What propaganda are people listening to? T Hawksblood

We need to make smart bullets that if they fire from a weapon not used by a US soldier it will not fire. That way the enemy can't use our ammunition against us. And the gun itself is smart and knows if an American is firing it from fingerprint id or a code tapped in.
