Iraqi Urban legends
Here's an interesting article
about Iraqi urban legends regarding the American forces. Here's a few of the more popular beliefs:
- that the bulletproof vests American soldiers wear actually contain air-conditioning units (I'm sure the soldiers wish this were true)
- that the sunglasses worn by almost all American soldiers allow them to see through clothing
- And that American armored vehicles are protected by electrical fields that detonate RPG rockets before they strike, but that this protection can be defeated by wrapping the rockets in electrical tape.
