The Soldier with the AK is a Coalition Soldier.Many US units are permitted to use AKs to increase the personal level of firepower,alot of our Guy's are only issued sidearms.My Son-in-law just returned from Iraq in August,his Company crossed the Tigres river in rafts and several of them lost their weapons in the river.these weapons were quickly replaced with AKs either captured or dropped by the Iraqi's.

Yes, their are plenty of AK's being used by U.S. troops in Iraq. But, I don't think the guy to the right in that picture is from the U.S.

The news I saw this morning said it was a joint operation b/w U.S. and Iraqi amry troops.

It is supposed to be the first operation of its kind.
