I heard Mitch McConnell on Laura I's show.  In speaking of the Democrat's shameful attempt to show they are worker bees by staging an affront to the Big Chuck & Houlihan all night movie fest.   In passing the Senator mentioned "good things" like MRAPs in the bill that died.  From Global Security Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) are the armored vehicles that have a V-shaped hull puts the crew more than 3 feet off the ground and deflects explosions. It was designed to withstand the underbelly bombs that cripple the lower-riding Humvees.  I recently learned about this and apparently the Pentagon has balked at the idea cuz of the cost and because they thought we would not be in Iraq for so long.  However they have requested them for the Iraqi National Forces.  Well now after several years they will finally give them to US Troops but it is tied to the Democrat's Defeatest Resolutions.  Here are two articles on them
