    Have I figured out how to end the war?

    Maybe not end it, but perhaps make life a little harder for the enemy. Here goes:

    We take the AK brass that is littering the countryside and clean it up, then reload it for them. Only some of it is not full of powder, it is loaded with either a high explosive to destroy their action or perhaps thermite to melt it to worthlessness? We leave this stuff somewhere for a traiterous iraqi soldier or policemen to steal to give to his al qaida buddies. We do this a lot and sooner or later they've destroyed a bunch of rifles and don't kow if their rifle is going to work when they need it to. Maybe we could leave RPG rounds laying about with a fuse set to detonate upon attempted launch.

    Whattdya think?

    Sounds like a plan, maybe we can hire some illegals to run the presses

    Maybe we can also do it domestically in the ghetto, somehow. Not sure how...maybe leave a "special" mag in guns being stored, so if they are stolen they at least can't be used for evil???

    Feel free to write me in in November. I could use a 100K raise.

    Special Forces did this with C4 in Vietnam to the enemy. It worked well.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I like the burying suicide bombers with pig carcasses. I've heard it's effective, also.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Dip all ammo in pigs blood, no 72 virgins for them if they get shot.

    While there's some attraction to thinking up a quick fix to an enormous problem, I wouldn't bet the farm on it.

    You mean they boobytrapped c4, or they loaded AK rounds with c4?

    Boobytrapped munitions.

    This was done quite often during the Viet Nam war, and a big reason why U.S. soldiers were severely reprimanded for using pick-up weapons. Ammo was loaded with H.E., rifles were compromised, artillery shells were short (if any) fused, etc.

    The U.K. did the same thing with a whole bunch of .303brit. Had a "leak" in the supply lines in India, so they let a few "special" batches get into the right/wrong hands.

    My Gandfather said some Axis countries did the same thing to mortar tubes in WWII, but word spread guickly to not use the enemy's stuff that was just a little to handy to be accidental.

    I'm sure sabotage has a much longer history than the written word. We just adapt it to the technology we currently employ.

    I had a similar idea for the drug problem which I feel we should either address fully and finally (poison the supply) or just get out of the business of legislating what people do to themselves.
