The New Humvee, a million a pop

Remember when the Iraq war started all those outcries that the military Humvees had too little armour to withstand the IEDs?

Remember how the troops were scrounging metal from dumps to jerry-rig a reinforcement against exploding mines?

Well, the military has got right on it.

The Pentagon has approved the expansion of the MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) program to over 20,000 units. The cost $20 billion.

Are they using these to fulfill Obama’s commitment to leave?
