Much Ado About Very Little

One of my inside the beltway correspondents tells me that the technology involved in what are alleged to be Iranian super weapons that have been deployed against US troops in Iraq is not very impressive. The same technology has been used in the US mining industry since the 1920's, the bombs are not very difficult to make, and the knowledge of how to make them is widespread.

I trust this guy's opinion. He's one of the top experts on military technology in the world and knows a lot about the mining industry too.

The opposition press is right to be suspicious of all the hype about these bombs but by no means justified in assuming that these are the drums of war we are hearing.
