Roadside bombs get Pentagon's attention

--CNN headline

U.S. will train troops against roadside bombs

--Detroit Free Press

This is only happening now?


And yes, they're still feeding us what my late uncle used to call "happy horseshit." From a State Department news story:

The only remaining effective tool that the Iraqi insurgency has against coalition forces is the improvised bomb, says Pentagon spokesman Lawrence Di Rita.

Once U.S. and coalition forces find a way to eliminate improvised explosive devices (IEDs), "it's over," he told reporters at a November 3 Defense Department briefing.

Good grief.
