The SKYDEX Convoy Deck has been installed on thousands of MATVs in service in Afghanistan -- because tests show that in an IED blast that means a 100 percent chance of injury to crew members, the innovative SKYDEX Convoy Deck reduces the chance of injury to just 10 percent.














SO WHAT?

Investigation shows U.S. soldiers have burned over 100 copies of the Koran.  Who gives a damn after what the Afghans have been doing to our troops?

All coalition troops at Afghan bases now armed around the clock


CLICK ON ARROW TO PLAY VIDEO

The uptick in attacks by Afghan security forces against coalition troops has hit home, with all troops at NATO headquarters and all bases across Afghanistan now ordered to carry loaded weapons around the clock, CNN learned Friday.

Gen. John Allen, the NATO commander in Afghanistan, ordered the move, according to a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the orders. The order, made in recent days, was divulged amid two more so-called green-on-blue or insider attacks Friday.

An Afghan police officer opened fire on U.S. troops in Farah province in southwestern Afghanistan, killing two service members, the NATO-led command said. Two International Security Assistance Force troops and an Afghan service member were wounded by another Afghan service member in Kandahar province, in the south.

The order comes as coalition forces adopt and study measures aimed at thwarting such attacks.

We touch down in Kabul and are treated to Taliban hospitality on the first night: a suicide bomb at a neighboring hotel interrupts a pleasant night's sleep. After kicking around pieces of the suicide bomber with local kids, we meet General Farooq Assas, head of the Afghan National Police Force, the kids who are being trained to police the country. At the end of the day, we drink moonshine with an ex-Mujahideen who has a thing for young boys. And they said Kabul would be heavy.
