The military seems to have figured out how to contend with the constant attacks on convoys moving supplies around Iraq — transporting the supplies via air instead. It seems like this will reduce casualties, but what does it say about the success of the occupation that the military has decided that the roads are no longer safe enough for our convoys?

Oh, and here’s an Iraq question to ponder. When spinning the question about the lack of armored Humvees in Iraq, the military has made certain to point out that when we initially invaded, none of our Humvees were armored, and that now something like 2/3 of them have armor of one kind or another. It sort of makes you wonder why, given all this fresh new armor, our casualty rates continue to go up in Iraq, doesn’t it?
