    US tanks taking a beating in Iraq

    USA Today has news that the US Abrams tanks, which managed to withstand the cold war years, aren't having as much look surviving the Iraq conflict:

    In the all-out battles of the 1991 Gulf War, only 18 Abrams tanks were lost and no soldiers in them killed. But since the March 2003 invasion of Iraq, with tanks in daily combat against the unexpectedly fierce insurgency, the Army says 80 of the 69-ton behemoths have been damaged so badly they had to be shipped back to the United States.
