I find it funny how casually we talk about weapons of death. I do not envy these men, the sacrifices they have to make is one that none of us can imagine. Can you imagine being told that you have to kill a man that you don't know. That is a heavy trip dude. The photograph is great though.

I rather kill a man I never knew then kill a guy I have talked to and gotten to know.

Just by the looks of guns you know they're Iraqi.
Why don't the US give them M4's if they want them to have some proper protection?

That's because M4's fire a 5.56 and suck at penetration. If the Government can supply a 7.62 in mass quantity then let them. It will pierce body armor and drop your target. Plus the AK is the most hardy gun in the world. You can bend the barrel then hammer it back into place and it will fire straight without a misfire, as well it works well in cold, desert and swamp environments.
