M16 "machine guns"?
"9mm grenade launchers"?
AR-15s modified to shoot .50 calibre?
I found the article interesting until I can across that crap. I agree with you Tekman, either both the writer and that general are idiots or the writer made it up entirely.
How about "the idiotwriter made it up entirely"? Considering the media's record for making up the news these days, especially on subjectsinvolving politics and guns,that gets my vote.
