    Presumably this is so that the Iraqis will be able to shoot their own unarmed demonstrators ....
     
  2. Interestingly, during the attacks on residential compounds in Riyadh in May, the one used to house the Vinnell staff who train the Saudi Royal guard was hit hardest because their emergency procedures dictated that everyone immediately congregate at muster points in open spaces - killing ground to you and me - when the alarm sounded.  Not the best bit of history for a group wishing to impress the world with its' expertise in a counter-terror situation.
