Yeah, 2/3 of pun: pu.

And Sam, it's not just water that makes the M4 horrible. If sand, especially the ultra-fine stuff that blows around Iraq, if even a very small amount gets in the weapon, it will jam. Not it might jam, but it will jam. And it can't always be fixed; if the gas tube gets blocked, you need special tools to clean that out. If, that is, the tube doesn't rupture. If that happens, you've got a weapon that needs to be manually reloaded every single time you fire. And considering that the charging handle is made out of relatively weak aluminum, it can break if you yank on it too much.

Let me be clear. I do not support the war in Iraq. I do, however, support the troops. And the troops need a rifle that won't fail the second it gets a little water, dirt, or mud into the mechanism.
