Sticky Bombs in Iraq

I’ve read/heard a few things about these over the past few years, but they seem to be the latest thing these days.

  1. Yeah … but the defense is fairly simple. Don’t park your car in an unsecured area, if you do park post a guard, and look the vehicle over before you move it. Note that they’re using these against Iraqi official vehicles and the personal vehicles of Iraqi civilians.

    There’s a reason they give mirrors on sticks to guards at checkpoints. These things are pretty easy to spot if you look under the vehicle.

  2. I agree with Hawk…

    People had this problem in Northern Ireland. It simply requires a look over the car. Are the EOD teams at disposal for this sort of task? Or are they pretty much snowed under already?

    It would be a great way to improve relations with the troops.
