A Bullet is a Bullet, Right? Maybe Not.

Apparently, our military has been told by Congress not to use Israeli-made bullets in Iraq:

Israeli-made bullets bought by the U.S. Army to plug a shortfall should be used for training only, not to fight Muslim guerrillas in Iraq (news - web sites) and Afghanistan (news - web sites), U.S. lawmakers told Army generals on Thursday.

When I first saw this, I thought it was a joke, but apparently not. So for any of our boys reading this out in the field: when you shoot someone about to fire a RPG at you, make sure the bullet says "Made in USA", any other bullet may not kill so sensitively.

As of this moment, I'm beginning to doubt our resolve to win this war. This is really sad.
