Equipment Shortage NOT Holding Iraqi's Back

An article in today's Macon Telegraph (AP) reports a major offensive near Syria involving 1000 Iraqi forces backed/led by 500 US warriors. No casualties reported. Boy that shortage of body armor, pistol ammunition, grenades and AV's really seem to hamper the operation today.

Not that supply issues aren't a problem, but compare this article with the 'blog' in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and it leaves you wondering how the 1000 Iraqi's can contribute to the cause - without shooting themselves in the foot.
