The AK-47 turns 60

The favorite weapon of freedom's enemies turns 60 today. It's quite a big to-do in Russia. Vladimir Putin is making a show of it. Why not, it's about the only they ever built that's worth a damn.

Here's an article about it.

Two haikus:

No more retreating
Dreams of farm machinery
Instead, Kalashnikov

(I respectfully beg an extra syllable due to the long Russian name.)

Noble intention
Unintended consequence
Adolph laughs in Hell
