Deadly Deja Vu in Iraq: Troops still without armor
by Joe in DC - 8/13/2005 04:03:00 PM

WTF? The NY Times just posted an article, "U.S. Struggling to Get Soldiers Improved Armor." That's right. Still struggling to get armor for the troops. We've heard this before and been told it's been taken care of....but it hasn't been. Soldiers in Iraq do not have the proper equipment:
For the second time since the Iraq war began, the Pentagon is struggling to replace body armor that is failing to protect American troops from the most lethal attacks by insurgents.

The ceramic plates in vests worn by most personnel cannot withstand certain munitions the insurgents use. But more than a year after military officials initiated an effort to replace the armor with thicker, more resistant plates, tens of thousands of soldiers are still without the stronger protection because of a string of delays in the Pentagon's procurement system.

The effort to replace the armor began in May 2004, just months after the Pentagon finished supplying troops with the original plates - a process also plagued by delays. The officials disclosed the new armor effort Wednesday after questioning by The New York Times, and acknowledged that it would take several more months or longer to complete.
Christ, no wonder Bush won't talk to Cindy Sheehan. The Commander in Chief continues to fail his troops. And how anyone with a son or daughter in Iraq can still support this clown is beyond me. Imagine the uproar in Congress if a Democratic President let troops stay in a war zone without the proper equipment. They'd be talking impeachment.

Bush has screwed up every single aspect of the Iraq war. And, as John said below, he just a god damn liar about Iraq. For all his screw ups, putting tens of thousands of soldiers in deadly danger because they don't have the body armor has to be among the worst.

Folks: What normal person can read this and not be mad? What normal person can say that this man is anything but a monster and a callous one at that? What normal person could read this and feel that things are "better than ever" in Iraq and in the U.S., as we hear in every radio and TV address from Dear Leader? What normal person can NOT do at least something like get involved with a blog network, or volunteer, or write his/her newspapers, congresspersons, local politicians, etc?

Are there any NORMAL PEOPLE out there who can see how wrong this is?????
