The US puppet government in what was once Iraq and is now thought of as the fifty-first US welfare state has shown some independence recently by making an arms deal with Serbia. The multi million dollar purchase of weapons was made without US colonial vice regent's approval or knowledge.
Iraqi arms negotiators have complained for years that Bush administration shipments of slingshots are just not sufficient for them to kill the rival Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds and aqibb (al-Qaida in Iraq because of Bush).
Bush military advisors have always reminded Iraq that David slew Goliath with a slingshot and that if they would only become good Christians like Hebrew David they too could slay the Philistine (though they are the only group not fighting in Iraq)(Mostly because they have been extinct for centuries).
Serbian arms dealers have sent huge shipments of broad swords and blunderbusses to the Iraqi army in return for millions of very colorful new American dollars.
