Urbin Report

Monday, March 31, 2003

I was just listening to NPR, their embedded reporter was telling how a Republican Guard unit pretty much crumbled when faced with armor from the US 3rd Infantry.
The NPR Talking Head back at the studio expressed surpise over how the "Elite" Republican Guards didn't put up a better fight.

I have to wonder what planet these NPR anchors come from. The Iraqi RG units might be Elite by Iraqi standards, but compared to US or British (or any other Commonwealth military), those guys wouldn't even measure up to a second rate National Guard unit.
