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

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.

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.
