If God had meant us to fire the 5.56 in combat, He would have made all our enemies, 2 feet tall, weighing 40 pounds.

Not that it matters, but what is the weight an individual soldier has to carry around of 5.56 vs. equal number of rounds of 7.62 ammo?

We have Iran, Syria, and North Korea in the next few years. Do you we have time to make a major logistic change in time to fight these conflicts. To suggests that the 5.56mm is inadequate is rdiciulous. The Israelis use it, in fact, the weapon that OBL carried, or carries, fires a 5.45mm round.
