    Golly, that seems very expensive.

    The M16 fiasco proved there was a much cheaper way to win the Cold War.

    All we had to do was convince the U.S. Army Ordnance Corp to defect to the Reds and to convince the Reds those Ordnance guys were incredibly smart. Then, the U.S. Army Ordnance Corp would have had free reign to apply their oh-so-invaluable know-how to all the weapon projects of the Soviet  Empire. Given what those guys managed to do to the AR-15 to make it into the M16, they would have turned the entire Soviet arsenal into a giant scrapyard in a matter of two years.

    OK. I may be a bit hyperbolic.

    Three years. Top.

    I deal in facts. My friends are few but fast.
