It’s official. The new enemy is…

The Pentagon has issued a report stating that now the preferred weapon of the insurgents is the roadside bomb.

You think people would have figured that out since about 7 out of 10 reported deaths are caused by a ‘roadside blast.’

Now stories are springing up everywhere about this “new and insidious enemy.”

“What is the Pentagon doing to combat IEDs?” “Soldiers fight new enemy” “Military working to combat IED menace” The headlines are everywhere.

The real trick will be if we can figure out a way to stop the tens of millions of dollars in training, equipment, personnel and logistics that each convoy represents being interdicted by some guy with a couple sticks of dynamite strung together and a remote control. Then we’ll be getting somewhere.
