After going through several books on the 1st and 2nd Gulf Wars, Somalia, Grenada, Panama, and the ongoing operations, I would have to say that full auto is a definte necessity. It isn't a full time use necessity, but one that keeps getting used over and over again when needed.

In combat, the M4 is pretty much exclusively fired in semi-auto mode.
Except when it isn't, such as at Takur Ghar.

Full auto is rarely used in combat because it's inaccurate and a waste of valuable ammunition. Laying down cover yes, everything else no.
It is only inaccurate if used inaccurately.
