BEFORE) -U.S. Army occupation troops in Iraq show off their brand new Stryker vehicles, which sport newly designed anti-missile cages to protect against guerrilla rocket propelled grenade attacks. Each Stryker vehicle costs over million. The Army plans to spend billion to acquire 2,131 vehicles. The "before" photo was taken in the Iraqi city of Mosul, March 19, 2004, after occupation troops attempted to subdue the city with a show of force. AFTER) - An occupation army Stryker armored vehicle BLAZES on a hillside road in Mosul March 28, 2004 after it was hit and DESTROYED by a ROCKET PROPELLED GRENADE fired by resistance fighters (Reuters photo/Namir Noor-Eldeen)

Quoting "DEBKAfile", at:
"US military chiefs in Washington and Baghdad believe the Stryker, built by General Motors Defense of Canada and General Dynamics Land Systems Division of the United States, will provide American troops with a better response to the ubiquitous rocket-propelled grenade (RPG), favorite weapon of Saddam Hussein’s loyalists. They are expected to show their rapid- response mettle against the guerrillas’ agile RPG pick-up trucks, which turned up for the first time in the Samarra battle of November 30 after an absence of several months."
