Marco's blog An [almost] daily rant 

Monday, March 24, 2003

Lenin said, "The Capitalist will sell you the very rope you intend to hang him with." I guess the Russians have really become capitalists now that they are selling Iraq jamming gear, missiles, and night-vision goggles. Wonder if some of that gear might find their way back to the Chechens, Muslim brothers of the Iraqis. Time will judge the accuracy of the Russian denial. Maj. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, vice director of operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters yesterday that so far the GPS-jamming devices were not affecting operations, but they have been destroyed anyway, reminding us of this old joke. In 1967, Nasser writes to Brezhnev, "Stop giving us surface-to-air missiles; give us surface-to-aircraft missiles."
