This just moved on the AP wire, the topic:<p>Iraq so dangerous that U.S. now outfitting military dogs with bulletproof vests.<p>Hmm, wasn't Wesley Clark just complaining about how poorly equipped U.S. soldiers in Iraq are?

I seem to recall a case in Maine a few years ago in which a little girl raised money to buy bulletproof vests for police dogs, and a judge ruled that the state could not accept the money because of an obscure law prohibiting private fund-raisers for law enforcement.<p>Perhaps they sent the vests to Iraq.
