Hi Del,

Kinda wondering about what I am hearing on the ABC 5:30PM news tonight:

In regards to that soldier that stood up and asked Sec Rumfield in Iraq about why local GI's have to scrounge around to armor their vehicles. The news said that a Press Reporter helped that GI on how to make the question to the Secretary.

Also, the news said that two factories that make and equip armor for vehicles said they could almost double their output but was not asked by the military to do so.....maybe now...

I wonder if Rumsfeld is uninformed or is trying to mislead? And why?

There is already plenty of armor available but no one is bothering to mention that other little considerations must be met too.

Little things like beefing up the suspension and changing gearing so the vehicle is still dependable, mobile, and can carry its combat load.

REVIEW

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
