Title: Comrade Kalashnikov's coy in his AK-47 reporting
-
-
In an odd choice, or maybe not of world reports, big news
today vetted on their story about a Russian arms designer,
who has been credited as the creator of one of this world's
most deadly automatic weapons. Commonly titled, AK-47.
-
Still alive today, Kalashnikov remains chief designer at the
Russian state-controlled arms manufacturing company that
first brainstormed the now infamous assault weapon, which
bears his name. Originally thought up, to combat a German
invasion of then Soviet Union, during World War II, or the
mid 1940's, it was, however, not completed until 1947, thus
the moniker "AK-47" or Kalashnikov's 1947 automatic gun.
-
History now votes that Comrade Kalashnikov's inexpensive
and deadly, but low-maintenance, gun was a factor in many
of the United State's reported, nominal, troop deaths during
the Vietnam war. Where Russians supplied North Vietnam's
armies with the Kalashnikov version of his AK-47. Six-inch
trees were reported to have been penetrated by shots from a
North Vietnamese operated 'Soviet' issued automatic AK-47.
-
Based on the "cookie-cutter" design of early American rifles
that were first mass produced by the likes of Winchester and
Colt, or Springfield, Mr. Kalashnikov refined the art of death
to a simple-efficient but inexpensive worldly maintained gun.
-
Most recently it has been displayed via terrorism recruitment
tapes, relating to present day Iraq, shown misfiring, jamming
during a purported desert training exercise. Big new reported
that the AK-47's "sturdy, simple and cheap, firing 600 bullets
a minute" and estimates that there's 100 million Kalashnikovs
throughout the world and account for 80 percent of all assault
rifles. Noting one can be purchased, in Latin American, for as
little as "$15" US Dollars. With Kalashnikov's own testimony
to the big western news agency stating that, as Russians, "We
sold the weapons to some countries for a symbolic price or even
for nothing, with the aim of assisting national liberation struggles.
Of course, this meant the Kalashnikov became available around
the world," the Soviet state-credited designer said just this month.
-
Further, he closed with, "We worked for [a] socialist society, for
the good of the people, which I [Mr. Kalashnikov] never regret."
-
So does that mean Comrade Kalashnikov, that the bear's sleeping?
