Iraq's new weapons should increase cull of Americans
Good news is coming out of Iraq as the resistance seems to have developed a new type of mine that can destroy the inaptly named Mine Resistant Ambush Protective vehicle. (MRAP) These MRAPs were developed as a replacement for the unarmoured Hummer, and their use did help to reduce the cull for a time, but now that the Iraqis have got their measure we can expect to see casualties amongst the occupation forces start to climb again.
To make matters worse for the Americans their military commanders in Afghanistan are screaming for more troops to help subjugate that country and have been told by the Pentagon that the only way they are going to get them is when troop numbers are cut in Iraq. Given Iraqi innovation in weapons development and the way that they always seem to be one step ahead of the Americans strategically, that doesn't seem likely any time soon.
Any warmonger reading this posting is cordially invited to leave a comment telling us how the cakewalk is coming along.
