Weapons to Iraq
Here's a partial list of countries who are likely involved in sending weapons to Iraq, with the U.S. at the top of the list. The intelligence used to assemble this list is at least as good as the Pentagon's. You can add to that list China and the Italian mafia.

Short version? Anyone who has munitions to sell is selling in Iraq. Why? Ohhhh ... money, political influence for their side, the usual reasons. Iraq is quite simply this great sucking hole for black market arms. And the funny thing is that the money is likely coming from U.S. taxpayers. Remember that 363 tons of money handed out to "jump start" the Iraqi economy? I'd say it's jumping alright.
