Why don't we just equip the Iraqi and Afghani armies with the Polish Tantal Beryl rifle??? Not much retraining would be needed to field those weapons, as they are 5.56mm NATO variations of the AK-74m, and more accurate than the AK-47.

Because there aren't jobs as project managers for senior US Army officers, nor post-retirement double-dipping corporate positions for them, available at Poland's Łucznik Arms Factory.
