General warns about loading MRAP basket.
No matter how many billions of dollars the Pentagon ends up spending on mine-resistant armored vehicles, U.S. troops in Iraq will remain at risk because the enemy eventually will figure out how to defeat the armor, said Gen. William Wallace, head of the Army Training and Doctrine Command. "All he [the enemy] has to do is add a little bit more explosive weight to the IED and he can probably begin to counter some of our advanced protective systems like the MRAP [mine resistant ambush protected vehicle] in the not too distant future. And it would be foolhardy for us not to expect that to happen," Wallace told scientists at a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency conference.
