Is that MARPAT he’s wearing?

  1. The American is feeding it on the left hand side.

    The Iraqis sleeves look like marpat, but I don’t know what pattern his helmet is.

  2. “Uh, would it help if he had an ammo belt?”

    Stealth rounds, maybe?

    If you look real close you can see two rounds just above the rear sights.

  3. Looks like a Marpat gortex. First we steal it from the Canadians, then the Army rips it off the Marines (a sorry attempt in my opinion) and then we give it away to the Iraqis. I wish I could legitimately feel irritated that an Iraqi is wearing my uniform, but I don’t think I can :)
