Shells and Drugs and Rivers of Babylon

British troops running weapons from Iraq to the German mob.

BRITISH soldiers have been caught smuggling stolen guns out of Iraq and allegedly exchanging them for cocaine and cash on the black market.

Security officials confirmed this weekend that soldiers from the 3rd Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment are at the centre of a criminal inquiry by the Royal Military Police (RMP) into a “guns for cocaine” network. [Via the Sunday Times]

I don't blame them. Weapons for blow. Damn good idea.
