You think Iraq is making a mistake buying M-16 from the US?

Depends on one's POV. For the US manufactures and their employees, great. There no risk to current technology being lost to an enemy.

But if I were an Iraqi unit commander, ya, I'd object.

Care of equipment and weapons isn't a acceptable Third World concept. (While under the influence of Oklahoma Thinking juice, a couple of buddies and myself actually buried a MAK 90 in the backyard, where sprinklers went on once a day. After a month we dug it up and drove to Lyle Creek. A quick swab with a rag and it was good to go)
