      Dear Eric,

      I'm very glad they are back up. I hope they publish
      Iraq resistance reports again soon.

      I think they found everyone on the list. We are
      dealing with experts here, not a bunch of high
      school kids with too much time on their hands.

      True, though some of the Kalashnikov brand names
      sound downright silly, particularly the umbrella.
      One wonders if it had a trigger-guard on the lever
      to open it :-) Mike Ross commented that the article
      proves you were right about there having been a
      version of the AKM to take NATO 5.56 mm ammunition.
      The explanation that it was "realpolitik" that was
      involved doesn't wash, though. It's not as if there's
      any shortage of the standard 7.62 X 39 mm cartridges.
      The gun stores here in Phoenix have more than they
      can sell.

      President Fox is doing just that, but he prefers
      to be more subtle, sending human waves of unarmed
      illegal immigrants rather than the Mexican Army.

      That would not surprise me in the least. A neighbour
      of mine who has done philanthropic work in Central
      America described conditions in those countries. He
      said that in many areas most of the population is
      unemployed and that prostitution is the chief source
      of income. I told him, "People have strapped bombs
      on themselves for less in other areas." I'm sure
      many Nicaraguans remember that they at least had work
      and food during the 1980s and that the American were
      responsible for ending that.
