Subs for the Caspian Sea???
Let’s Make A Deal !
We’ve got $3 billion dollars worth of the world’s finest military equipment being dismantled and thrown in the junk pile about 600 miles away across the Caspian Sea in Afghanistan.
We’re already arming Al Queda forces all over the mideast so why quibble over a few thousand of our finest tanks, MRAPs and other gear in the hands of another muslim government?
Well if South Korean military hardware is like its Samsung and LG stuff it will probably be great stuff and work 1st time out of the box.
Unlike American manufactured stuff far too often.
