The military is reviewing soldiers’ complaints that their standard ammunition isn’t powerful enough for the type of fighting required in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army’s highest-ranking officer said Thursday. But Gen. George W. Casey Jr., the Army chief of staff, said it was too soon to say whether the Pentagon will switch.
Murdoc can tell you what the result of this latest posturing review will be:
Meanwhile, every time this comes up we get a smattering of “5.56 hollow point would be just fine against the jihadis.”
This is followed by “Yeah, but the Hague Convention and all…We don’t want our enemies using hollow points against us, do we?”
What if Murdoc says “The answer to that is not only yes, but Hell Yes! I invite any and all enemies of the US military to adopt hollow point expanding ammunition immediately.“?
