Cougars Sent Into Iraq

Here’s a cool story:

US Marines buy battlewagon from South African department economic development.

The Cougar, which is bullet-, explosion-, and mine-resistant, will apparently be used to transport engineers in Iraq. Hey, I’d certainly feel safer in one of these than in a Humvee.

It’s nice to know that, in at least one small way, this country is doing something to help to help bring democracy to Iraq.
