The Global Guerrillas blog features this quote, illustrating one of the worst aspects of the war in Iraq:
In the words of one British Army bomb disposal officer, "These guys have picked up in two years what it took the IRA a quarter-century to learn."

We've turned Iraq into a terrorist grad school. These guys are learning "on the job" which is always the best way to learn technical skills. I just hope we can diffuse things quickly enough that the guys building and using these bombs will just go back to living their lives and not calcify into a permanent army. What a damned mess.
