U.S. weapons land in Lebanon for Islamic State fight: ‘This aircraft is full, chock-full!’ – Washington Times

A cache of emergency weapons — including M16-A4 assault rifles and anti-tank missiles — was delivered Friday to Lebanon from the United States at Lebanon’s request.

“This is just the latest in a series of deliveries that have arrived in the last 36 hours,” said U.S. ambassador David Hale from a Beirut air base, the Associated Press reported.

The ambassador added that the U.S. has already provided the Lebanese army with 480 anti-tank guided missiles, mortars and over 1,500 M16-A4 rifles.

“This aircraft is full, chock-full!” said Antonio Banchs, defense attache to the U.S. embassy, as he inspected a new shipment of weapons, AP reported.

The ignorant and credulous goofs of the media, so fixated on the awesome destructiveness of “assault rifles,” probably think a plane load of M16 poodle-shooters can defeat militant Islam all by themselves.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
