Marines could have been saved by better body armor

Here’s something to piss you off first thing in the morning: the Times is reporting that a Pentagon study shows that 80% of Marines killed in Iraq could have been saved by improved ceramic body armor that has been available since 2003.

Awesome. Remember what Rummy would say back when he still did press conferences about Iraq? “You fight with the army you have, not with the army you want.” Easy for his draft-dodging ass to say. That remark gets even more sinister in the light of that report.
