USA TODAY ran a story in the July 16, 2007 edition which showed a Humvee graveyard of bombed out Humvees taken out by IEDs in Iraq. Camp Al Asad in Anbar province has hundreds of these vehicles. Here's a single picture of a bombed out Humvee RAD found on Google.
The article was entitled "Pentagon balked at pleas from officers in field for safer vehicles, Iraqi troops got MRAPs; Americans waited." Is this the "compassionate conservatism Dubya talked about in the '00 campaign? If so it's a strange kind of compassion which results in the death of 1500 American soliders!
