Amnesty International says Iraq is being flooded with weapons

LibertyAirBlog is very concerned about what is happening in Iraq. Unlike the mainstream media, I am concerned by the news that has been coming from that war torn country.

The US and the UK are doing too little to interdict the flood of weapons that have been descending on Iraq. The calm that has fallen on Iraq belies the tensions that are still there. Adding weapons to the mix is just a rescipe for disaster. Amnesty International estimates that more than 1m small arms have been sold to Iraq. Iraq has signed more than $3bn worth of arms deals in the past two years.

The Guardian in UK has more about this story.

When the war starts again, there will be plenty of weapons to fight with. The coming war in Iraq will make the last five years look mild.
