The right kit?

Recommended Posts

Yes I do recall, PJ, what UK made arms were used by Iraq?

 

I did hear that the Argentineans had used British made bombs in the war, but thought it was only speculation and remained unproven. Iraq bought it arms from Russia.

I Didn't take friendly fire into account Obs

 

Do you mean the depleted Uranium shells and rounds, they are used because they have a very high density, not because they are radio active, I am not sure but I don't think they are radio active, but I do stress I am not sure.

As i've said before ,for some people war is very profitable & it is in their interests  to create ,promote or encourage conflicts.

 

 

As for our weapons being turned against our forces ,we had a similar anomaly in the Falklands with missiles from our French allies,which had been sold to Argentina in good faith, being used against our forces.

The trouble with dealing in arms is, you lose control of what happens to them after you have sold them, and they might come back to haunt you later.
