      They still have a lot of our weapons left in the warehouses, and in Iraq they don’t recognize the other, if only they wouldn’t get to the barmales.

Many countries are helping Iraq, and the Czechs, if you are not aware, are quite determined to maintain a certain sovereignty in international relations. And their position in relation to Daesh is dictated by their own attitude to terrorism.

                    my opinion is this: the one who has the right to say "we" who really did something for the country, and did not ask: WHAT THE COUNTRY DID FOR ME? All the rest WE have the right to talk about the VICTORY like this: "Our grandfathers (our country) defeated fascism (liberated Prague, including)" And by the way, the losses were much less in the Prague operation, the Germans by that time had already broken through to meet the Americans, wanting to surrender to them, and not the Red Army. The rearguard remained in Prague, badly battered by the remnants of the ROA division, which joined the Prague uprising.
                    And certainly It’s not up to you, not Marche, and most likely, to anyone on this site HOW IT WILL BE NEXT TIME! In general, it would be better not to have to figure it out.

      Czech Republic will supply Iraq assault rifles CZ vz. 58
      TSAMTO, January 28. On January 25, the Czech government announced its intention to transfer to the central government of Iraq and the leadership of the Kurdish autonomy 3000 new and 3600 retired and stored in the Czech Armed Forces CZ vz.58 assault rifles, as well as 7,2 million of ammunition for them.
      According to Janes Defense Weekly, Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka announced on Twitter a new package of military assistance. On January 25, Minister of Defense Martin Stropnicki told the media that another 3,8 million rounds of 7,62x39 mm caliber and 3 million rounds of 7,62x54 caliber would be donated to Jordan.

      The CZ vz.58 assault rifle was developed by the Czech company Czech Zbrojovka under a Soviet 7,62x39 mm cartridge in the late 1950s. and adopted as a regular small arms of the Armed Forces of Czechoslovakia in the early 1960s. Production of CZ vz. 58 was discontinued in 1988. Currently, the Czech Armed Forces are replacing the CZ vz. 58 with a new assault rifle CZ 805 BREN A1.

      As TsAMTO previously reported, in November 2015, the Czech Ministry of Defense supplied Iraq with 10 million machine gun cartridges and 5 thousand hand grenades.

        Numerous photographs have appeared on online resources devoted to events in Syria, in which fighters of government troops are armed with the latest Russian-made assault rifles - the AK-104. Judging by their reviews, this Kalashnikov assault rifle was very much appreciated during the battles in the city ruins.

    This is not help, but extinguishing the fire with gasoline at least. Help in the fight against IS must be taken from the Russian Federation and not from the Americans, and there is a recent living example. But if the Czech Republic is a NATO member, then help is the same. This suggests what to say it does not mean the fight against terrorism, but only shows that Europe simply does not know how to fight terror and at the same time fears it.
    Question: Where and to whom in the event of a real threat of terrorism will the Czech Republic turn and who can really help it?

                Fabius with Fiesta beguiled. Moskvich collected in the 70s. AZLK in the 50-70s gave good foreign exchange earnings. And the eight appeared when the Muscovite was already trying to launch 2141, I went on such a car for six months, but I started to rot the body, I had to get rid of it. But of all the domestic cars that happened to drive, I remember him as a reliable (though, after fine-tuning for a week) comfortable and well-managed transport for the family. Moreover, it cost almost 2 times cheaper than nine. On the periphery they still come across with Renoa engines, men praise, although they will soon be 20 years old.
                It's a shame that our author drove our own into the pit. The Swede was driven out of VAZ, but late, he strangled the last foci of our localization.

    For the Czech Republic this is a cool party! The main thing is that the machines were not aluminum!

    Ah, how nice to hear me
    shutter distortion sound,
    native AK - you are Russian !!!
    Not Czech, not Chinese and not Belarusian.

    There is a different sound
    And the smell of grease ...
    and don't tell tales!
    AK - he is Russian, and no one else.

    If crooked, sorry. Just AK (AKM) Czechs riveted for the Warsaw Pact. And to whom they are now giving up ??? But, HE'S ALL EQUAL AK!

      Czechs do not have AK (AKM). Own design. Only the cartridge is the same. In tyrnet, the Czech machine gun is described quite well.
      And they riveted it for themselves. More than that, he was not in service with the VD (if memory serves).

    Now the Americans are arming the opposition and ISIS with Kalashnikov’s Soviet legacy, and blood will flow in tanks. It is unfortunate that this region needs to be disarmed.
