Chrenkoff: Insurgent's do the darndest things

Arthur Chrenkoff has written yet another article about the stupidness of these "insurgents." It is quite humorous, if it wasn't so serious. I guess you have to laugh when you can.

There are 6 points to his article. Each one provides a little insight as to what the Iraqi and our Troops go through on a daily basis. Sometimes I wonder if this isn't Candid Camera or the TV show "Cops." It is a really good read. I'll do a brief:

1.If you are going to be an insurgent, do not advertize it by writing anti-coalition messages outside of your hideout.

2. If you are going to set off a bomb by remote control, make sure you don't leave a trail leading to your house.

3. If you are going to use IED's, make sure you don't leave the wires sticking out all over the place, and don't act suspiciously.

4. If you are going to take residence in a town to hide, do not kill the townspeople you need the support from. Also, do not destroy their infrastructure.

5. Things you can do to a prospective car-bomber to make sure he doesn't succeed but if he does, he goes with the car.

6. Let us not forget an oldie but goodie. In order to bring them out from hiding, just taunt them. How? You must read the article to find out!

I hope you all enjoy the article. We truly are doing a helluvalot better than the press is willing to give the Iraqis and our men and women sufficient credit. To all of you out there fighting to protect our homefront: Thank you for your service and sacrifice. That includes your families and friends. Stay as safe as possible, and Godspeed home.
