Iraqi Forces Add Russian Machine Gun to US Abrams Tank

via Sputnik.
The US-Russian tank hybrid has unnerved the Pentagon. According to the officials the hybrid could result in violations of Iraq’s FMS agreements with Washington, due to unauthorized use by Shiite militias and the unsanctioned addition of the Russian gun and Iranian ammo.
Our friends (as if Iraq could be called a friend) no longer respect us and our enemies no longer fear us.

Unless things change drastically the legacy of the US president will be the same as Bush Jr...drastic failure on the international stage.  What makes his time worse?  Even his "legacy" items are tarnished.  The Iran Nuke Deal is being questioned by even his most ardent supporters and no one can point to a single success.  His only hope is TPP and most Americans are against that too.

NOTE:  For all the people that are saying this isn't a big deal...just go to the Defense Security Cooperation Agency website (here) and check out all the gear/ammo/vehicles that were expedited to Iraq.  This move isn't a wartime emergency.  Its a choice and a slap in the face.
