    US gives ‘leftover’ arms to Pakistan
    By Naveed Miraj
    Published: January 15, 2015

    ISLAMABAD: The United States has handed over the serviceable weapons, ammunitions and other sophisticated military equipment to Pakistan that was being used by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) troops in Afghanistan.

    “A complete list of all the reusable military equipment was provided to Pakistan, from which whatever was deemed necessary and was required by the armed forces was selected by the defence ministry. Pentagon was accordingly informed about it,” sources in the ministry said on the condition of anonymity

    They added that a majority of the equipment selected from the list has already been handed over to Pakistan. After the announcement of the withdrawal of ISAF forces from Afghanistan, Pentagon decided to give military equipment to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    “However, a major chunk of the military equipment that includes sophisticated weapons is being moved to Jordan,” the sources said.

    Pakistan shouldn't have accepted these weapons. The Americans are trying to build some credit for the supply routes. They desperately require the Pakistani supply routes to get out of Afghanistan. Nothing else. I know some may argue that anything is better than nothing. Also, that we need every equipment that we can get our hands on to fight the militants etc. Nonetheless, the Americans never give for free. That includes leftovers. These weapons shouldn't have been taken.

    Hence I disagree.

    Let's put it this way. Both deserve each other. The Americans only need Pakistani help through their supply routes. Pakistan has become addicted to all forms of aid which includes military assistance. No doubting that. It's a shame.

    Must be "Classified for now"...
    a report published few months back stated that Pakistan is particularly interested in the U.S. Army’s mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicles,

    that is not the point once Pakistan will get them ... as we consider them samples we and china can build them locally here so dont you worry about that and keep smiling by saying leftovers while we are so much happy about this .

    We will create more of them with the help of china
