A Trail of Bullet Casings Leads From Africa’s Wars Back to Iran

According to people I know who have spent much time in Afghanistan, many of the problems there are fueled and even created from Tehran. It would appear that Iranian state machinery is funding and supplying many of the worlds bloody and oppressive groups and slaughters.

The first clues appeared in Kenya, Uganda and what is now South Sudan. A British arms researcher surveying ammunition used by government forces and civilian militias in 2006 found Kalashnikov rifle cartridges he had not seen before. The ammunition bore no factory code, suggesting that its manufacturer hoped to avoid detection.

Within two years other researchers were finding identical cartridges circulating through the ethnic violence in Darfur. Similar ammunition then turned up in 2009 in a stadium in Conakry, Guinea, where soldiers had fired on antigovernment protesters, killing more than 150.

    All roads lead to the poisened well that is Iran….:(

    Although Iran is a Shia regime, they seem quite happy to fund Sunni terrorism. One more reason to mistrust the two-faced riddle that is Islam.
    Islam is full of contradictions, hypocrisy, changing-of-mind, back-stabbing and so on, because it is based on lies and anything based on lies will always remain an enigma.

    If those dings on the casing heads are from ejectors then that brass has been reloaded and reused more than twice: If so then who reloaded it and where was that done – and how many refirings can comblock brass endure?

  4. Richard says:

    Woody you saw the same thing I did, from my understanding they like the Western brass can withstand 5 reloads.

    Iran is funding any Moslem group that will attack non Moslems, they have been doing this since the Islamic Revolution in the late 70s, another fact the left refuses to accept.
