Watch & Learn

During a raid on their village these three Arab boys followed us from house to house watching us search their homes. We were searching the village for Insurgents and weapons. Each house is allowed to have one AK-47 and one magazine of ammunition but we often find homes with several weapons and dozens of magazines. In such an instance we take everything but the minimum they are allowed to keep. The search on this village ended in the seizure of five or six AK-47's, shotguns, bolt action rifles, an RPK Machine Gun and thousands of rounds of ammunition but no bad guys. Maybe next time.
