Stop The Bull Shit!
Harry and Helen!
Now we see the Pentagon regrouping (groping) about the
lack of appropriate armor for the troops in Iraq. All
this after downsizing the number of heavy tanks and artillery
(five out of six removed!) and now some idiot has proposed
we send over thousands of M113 Personnel Carriers to (replace
the Humvees) that were used (and abused) during the Vietnam
war. Hey folks, AK 47 rounds pierced the flimsy armor
on the 113"s. And RPG's stopped them dead in their
"tracks". The "grave yard" on Okinawa
was already full of tanks and armored personnel carriers
in 1965! As the war progressed, it was considered cost
efficient to take the "dead" vehicles out to
sea and dump them, rather than take them to Okinawa for
repair. Can you imagine?
business of fighting a war in the "urban" areas
is nothing but a death wish.
they get into close combat in a city, the air power is
negated because of the close proximity of the combatants.
"friendly fire" is going to be the greater culprit
of the war in the cities. And then guess who the winner
