Oh, thanks for the "warning"! ;) It isn't any secret about the arms biz really. We sell a lot of arms, the Russians, Chinese, Israelis, French do too. When conflicts start the weapons get used. A lot of the weapons the Iraqi's are using do *happen* to be Russian weapons, but that's nothing really to be that excited about. The Russians supplied most of their weapons during the 80's before the end of the cold war-it's what they are familiar with.
