The best surprise is no surprise

It shouldn't come as a shock that the Stryker is well-suited to Iraq. Long before there were terrorists in Iraq, there were "The Troubles" in Northern Ireland, where the British found the best vehicles for fighting urban guerillas were wheeled APC's like the Stryker. Between the Saracen, the Humber Pig and the Saxon, the Brits used wheeled APC's for years to great effect in places where their tracked FV432's were too slow or too noisy, much like the Bradley's and M113's of today's Army.

Now, if we could only get something like an up-gunned version of the Fox with perhaps a 25mm chain gun and a coaxial automatic grenade launcher. That might put the fear of God in the bellies of some of Al-Qaeda in Iraq's members...

Didn't the Holiday Inn use that line in their advertisements?
