Strykers on the Way

Fort Lewis Stryker unit going to Iraq

As I’ve mentioned earlier (here and here) I think sending the new Stryker units to Iraq is a great idea. There will be problems, of course, but this will maybe give us time to uncover them and come up with good solutions before North Korea, or Iran, or Syria, or Saudi.

These light armored units will protect the troops better than the armored Humvees many in Iraq are now using, as well. Good move.
