Brazil's soldiers guard the entrance of the Providencia hillside slum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Saturday, March 11, 2006. The occupation by some 1,600 troops came in response to the robbery of 10 assault rifles and one pistol stolen from army barracks last Friday by seven gunmen wearing army-issue camouflage gear and ninja masks. Police now say some 20 people were involved in that robbery, with 13 others outside the barracks providing cover. None of the weapons has been recovered, but many in Rio have long yearned for the military to take over the city's shantytowns, which are controlled by armed drug gangs who frequently light up the night sky with tracer bullets.

Further reminder of the dangerous world we live in.

and that photo (and all the others previosly published from Iran) of the civilians training up on weapons, is a troubling clue.

The religious zealot parts of their population are preparing for war. With us, and of course Israel.

From the looks of the magazine, that ones a 5.56. Depends on which rifle in the movie you're talking about. The one that Sizemore (think it was, been awhile) carried in the opening armored truck robbery scene was 7.62, a 50.63 model IIRC. Later in the flick Pacino carried an FNC in the big shootout.
