"Progress" in Iraq: Guerillas making great progress at becoming more deadly

Two US soldiers were killed when their Abrams battle tank was disabled by a mine or roadside bomb north of Baghdad.

The Abrams is supposed to be the world's premier battle tank and impervious to almost any attack. According to the FAS information sheet, no crew members were lost in the 1991 Gulf war.

Maybe Bush was right... there is progress being made in Iraq - just not the kind he had in mind.

Seven Ukrainian soldiers were also wounded southeast of Baghdad in a combination mine-small arms attack on their APCs.

Mano Negra has posted numerous articles on the inadequecy of US and "allied" vehicles in Iraq. Take some time to look at his prescient posts to get an idea of the deathtraps in which the US army is forcing soldiers to travel around Iraq.
