Wolfe Blitzer still talking out his butt

A great post from iraqnow on MSM coverage of the tragedy of the IED killing 14 US service men. The key quote:

That's right. The explosion flipped a 31-ton APC.

And what is Wolf Blitzer's argument? That the military didn't provide good vehicles in the Al Anbar Province. And that -- and I quote verbatim, -- "an up-armored Humvee would have stood a better chance."

Do the math. If the explosion flipped vehicle weight 31 tons (plus another ton and a half or so of marines and gear), then what are the survivability chances of a 4-ton uparmored Humvee?

Clue #1: Journalism majors don't do a lot of math classes..... or in Wolfe's case math classes and logic classes.
