US Soldier's Dated Rant To Iraqi Police More Relevant Than Ever?

This video seems to be shot around 2008 and it depicts a US Soldier verbally unloading on an Iraqi Police Force unit. Many of the same issues he brings up have only been magnified since the US military left Iraq. What do you think, is this guy giving the Iraqi Police too hard a time or prophesying the future? » 6/26/14 6:37pm 6/26/14 6:37pm

Insurgents Have Turned This Iraqi City Into An Automotive Wasteland

In case you've forgotten about Iraq, it is still A Country That Exists with 36 million people living in it. And the biggest northern city of Mosul was just completely overrun by extremist insurgents, whose first order of business seems to have been to burn anything that has wheels attached. » 6/11/14 8:06pm 6/11/14 8:06pm

Your Local Cops Are Probably Out Buying Ex-Iraq Death Trucks Right Now

This is an MRAP, a mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicle. It didn't exist until well into the Iraq War, when we went to war with the Army we had, and that Army's Humvees didn't survive very well.

Iraqi Taxi Crushed By Tank, Will Never Park In A Handicap Spot Again

Uday Is Gone, But Baghdad Car Freaks Still Have It Rough

Saddam Hussein's son Uday used to confiscate any cool car that caught his eye on the streets of Baghdad, so in those days it was best to drive the Kadett and leave the BMW stashed away. Those days are gone, but new dangers lurk for the brave Iraqi who wants to customize his ride. The LA Times has a story on three… » 7/04/08 3:00pm 7/04/08 3:00pm

Any Car You Can Stuff Bombs Into: Crazie Bob's Iraqi Car Lot

Let's suppose you're a grunt manning a checkpoint in Iraq, where you and your buddies are fully equipped with video camera and low-end video-editing software. Let's further suppose you've stopped a tractor-trailer loaded with scrap cars. You'd definitely win the Hoon of the Century award if you commandeered the… » 4/27/07 6:00pm 4/27/07 6:00pm
