Home made arms?

New York Times's "Iraq Team to Discuss Militias With Iran" article includes the following pictures:

With this caption: "Lt. Gen. Mohan al-Fireji, an Iraqi commander in Basra, with a seized arms cache on Tuesday. "

The "arms cache" depicted in the picture looks about as home made arms as there can be. Yet the article still talks about it as if they have been made in Iran!

AS a side note: The author of the article is Michael Gordon, yes the same Michael Gordon that co-authored the Judith Miller lies on Iraq.
