    effectively hitting a vastly stronger US military, I am shocked that you think a convoy is safe.

    Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!

    •  Not all convoys are created equal (0+ / 0-)

      There are numerous accounts of IEDs killing troops and damaging vehicles.

      There's not too many of the Iraqis subsequently overrunning the convoy.

      There's NONE that I know of where a convoy with multiple tanks in it was attacked after an IED went off. Light infantry with rocket-propelled grenades do not engage armor supported by infantry for long. A chain gun turns what might seem like good cover against lighter weapons into not much cover at all.

      I'm on a mission! http://www.dailykos.com/comments/1233352/51142428#c520 Testing the new site rules.
