Kuwait has reported the theft of a massive amount of U.S. weapons. The Interior Ministry said thieves broke into a warehouse and stole a huge amount of firearms and ammunition. The ministry said 20,000 U.S.-origin M-16 assault rifles and 15,000 rounds for 9mm pistols were stolen.
There were no guards during the break-in, the ministry said on April

Unguarded? Someone needs hanging!!
They belonged to them was not our Personell.
Janet needs rifles to go with all that ammo she’s bought!
So, no Inter-galactic Background Checks will be done on these. No 4473’s for the fbi to track. Oh. And these are actual “assault” weapons. Hello difi. Better get on this right away. We can’t have these “high powered” weapons on the streets of kuwait. Lucky they won’t be able to get additional “high capacity ‘clips’” for them huh? At least from ny, ct, ca, ma, nj and a number of other places. Did maybe some chechnians do the deed? Nah. Probably some anti-federalist white guys holding a grudge.
Sounds like the Muslim in chief is arming his friends.
Just pass a law banning their use.
Who needs enemies??
exactly. to pretend that “nobody was on guard duty” when 35,000 of our brand new weapons were stolen
even the local quickie-mart has surveillance cameras and a security guard service, and that’s only to protect a few cases of beer
this is, indeed, how we arm the enemy
Coming to a Mexican border state near you.
phuquin’ AY !!
I have to ask myself why there were 20,000 m-16s sitting unguarded in Kuwait?
Fast and Furious—Kuwaiti style.
To believe this is a mistake is ridiculous.
The government knows exactly what they are doing and the orders always come from the top down, not the other way around.
” Middle East Fast and Furious? “
First thing that crossed my mind.
Protect our borders now! We want a big fence along the whole Rio Grande. I am tired of hearing that it would be too expensive and ineffective. The Berlin Wall and it attendant fencings across the length of Eastern Europe did a pretty effective job of preventing people from leaving for 40 years. Our fence, I would call it the “Freedom Fence”, will let people go anytime they want, but will stop people from coming here uninvited. Besides, since dems like public spending so much, it would provide thousands of jobs. If we are going spend billions of dollars on public works projects, this is a public project I could support. I know. It will never happen.
Operation Jihad and Furious?
bs....bet we gave them to the Syrian rebels to avoid the scrutiny of Russia.
STIMULUS could have built EIGHTY Hoover dams. Obama built division and corruption. He should be impeached just for Porkulus.
So many muslim chiefs with so many friends.
Could it be our very own Dear Leader?
How else can you cleanly arm the Muslim Islamists with basically no questions asked? Oops... somebody "stole" them, shucks. Much cleaner than Fast and Furious.
Did anybody check on Holder’s whereabouts?
Exactly. We rightly condemn much of the welfare state started by Roosevelt, but at least his spending produced some public works projects that are still being used today. I think the wasted stimulus spending of late was a crime against our children’s future.
obamaic islamism advances
Stolen... sure. Probably sent to Obama’s Al Qaeda buddies in Syria.
Unguarded for a reason.
Did he give them the keys or temporarily dismiss the guards?
Treasonous bastard, arming his brethren to the 9’s.
Just like the manpads, will be used against western interests and our friends in David.
Yes, Dianne Feinstein's fault. Not a peep from her. Because she wants the enemy armed against American citizens, without any checks, registry, or tracking. Because she wants us denied these weapons, and us tracked, and us jailed. But no-siree Bob, arm our enemies and don't say a word. She's on some powerful committees and does have a say.
Did we get a background check on the perps? /s/
Maybe they were already gone!
So our government allowed 20,000 M-16s to go into the hands of Islamist enemies. Well, at least they didn’t allow American civilian redneck men of prior service to get their hands on the rifles. [Little irony and sarcasm there.]
Wonder if they had the bolts stored there too?
Or ask them to voluntarily turn them in exchange for a couple of Justin Beiber tickets or something. I'm sure that'll work.
“20,000 U.S.-origin M-16 assault rifles”
They are/were Kuwaiti-owned military stock.
20,000 rifles is an unbelievably large number, this facility must be if not the sole, or single largest armory in the country.
“The regular forces are 15 500 people. The reserve - 23 700 people. Militarized formations (National Guard) - 5 000 people.” Source: http://topgun.rin.ru/cgi-bin/texts.pl?category=state&mode=show&unit=6050&lng=eng
In effect, every single rifle owned by the Reservist Command in the country was stolen, in a single robbery.
No doubt it was an inside job.
No, this is how we arm the Syrian resistance.
They are not the enemy. they are not all lily white but they will prevail.
That sounded so incredible I searched a bit more. There was a translation error in early reports.
TL:DR : It was 20,000 ROUNDS of M-16 ammo, and the 9mm ammo, shooting ear protectors, and other stuff you’d find at a shooting range, and a printer.
Here is the updated story
20,000 M-16 rifle rounds stolen from MoI warehouse
KUWAIT: A security source said that 20,000 M-16 rifle rounds, and 15,000 9mm pistol rounds, along with an undetermined shooting ear protectors, and a printer were stolen from the shooting warehouse of the Minstry of Interior in Subbiya area. The source said three doors were broken and the entire content was removed, adding that there were no guards at the place according to the officer who informed about the theft. The officer did not accuse any one. Directors are investigating the matter
Hey, hussein’s gotta cut back on the budget somewhere.
Thanks for the update.
That's EXACTLY what it sounds like!
Just giving Islamofascist killers the assault rifles law-abiding Americans aren’t supposed to have.
Try being in basic training and losing one live round at the shooting range.
No guards, huh?
Oh, I’m sure there was no behind-the-scenes arrangement made. “Theft” by appointment is the far more likely scenario.
The ministry said 20,000 U.S.-origin M-16 assault rifles and 15,000 rounds for 9mm pistols were stolen. "There were no guards during the break-in,Story sounds like some Shiite.
Perfect. Just f****** perfect.
Maybe that is where the billion rounds of ammo bought by DHS & IRS is going — to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Time for Kuwait to order 40,000 more, for the Muslim Brotherhood.
and nobody saw nuthin, nobody heard nuthin..spy satellites were asleep...
