    ALERT-READ THE NEWSWEEK ARTICLE VERY VERY CAREFULLY

    I found the following statements to be very important to us:

    1."Now the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO), formed in 2006, has a staff of 400 and a budget this year of $4.5 billion."



    2."The U.S. military will now be re-equipped with armored vehicles at the cost of billions. The armored-vehicle shortfall has attracted a great deal of attention in the press and in Congress, but it misses the larger point, says JIEDDO chief Gen. Montgomery Meigs, who was brought out of retirement to be the overall commander in the war against roadside bombs. "

    3."The Army's foot-dragging finally stopped after a briefing for Defense Secretary Robert Gates on May 1. Unlike the Army, the Marines had ordered a disproportionate number of odd-looking vehicles called MRAPs (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected), which have a V-shaped chassis to deflect explosions."

    4." According to a source who was present but would not be identified discussing a top-level meeting, Gates turned to one Army commander and inquired: "Tell me, general, what is the difference between a Marine's blood and a soldier's?"

    AND GUESS WHO RECEIVED THE MARINE CONTRACT-IONATRON

    there is no doubt in my mind we are going to be used by all branches as well as other coalition partners.

    The bashers have given you a great article that was meant to bash IONATRON but when you read the article, it was a super super GREAT ARTICLE.

    Peter.
