    Surprise: Algerian Hostage Takersí Arms Came From Libyan Govt

    With Algerian authorities still combing through the aftermath of last weekís hostage siege at the Amenas gas plant, which led to the deaths of scores of foreign hostages, a surprising fact about the hostage takersí armaments has been revealed.

    According to officials, the arms came from Libya. And by and large not the looted arsenal of the former Gadhafi regime, whose armaments have left the entire region awash in weapons, but rather the modern gear provided by GCC member nations to the Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC) and associated rebel groups, who have since been installed by NATO as the government of Libya.
    The attackers fought their way onto the heavily guarded site wielding the same AK104 weapons that were the gun of choice for the Libyan rebels, and even wearing the yellow flak jackets provided to the NTC by the Qatari government.

    The Libyan Civil War and the subsequent free-for-all of arms looting has driven many conflicts in the region, and the rebels in Mali are by and large armed with looted Gadhafi regime weapons. This is the first time weapons provided to the NTC have turned up in a foreign conflict however.

    More blowback from Libya.

    See though that's the thing even our Government doesn't want you to know, most arms in the world are sprinkled around by the Governments Lol. We give guns to rebels that support "our cause" half way around the world that lead to kids being killed but at the same time pass laws governing against our own citizens rights to own guns in order to protect our kids. Huummmm???????

    And I'm the criminal if I don't register my guns..........give me a ****ing break.

    Well that didn't take long for it to backfire. At least Iraq took a few years before it exploded into a civil war. Can't wait to see what happens if we jump into Syria. /sarcasm
