Is the green zone in Iraq vulnerable?
Advertisements [?]
Much has been reported about the green zone about how it's such a tight security bubble and probably the safest place in Iraq. It doesn't take much to believe the green zone is probably at the top of the list of most insurgents as a desirable target.

I remember some time ago insurgents coordinated an attack using more than one suicide bomb. Watching the video I was struck at how easy they were willing to sacrifice themselves in order to gain the larger objective.

My point is the insurgents may very well find a way inside the green zone. I have no idea how it's fortified, but I would bet many of them know. Once inside the damage that could be done may well be considerable.

If the green zone is breached and enough damage is done could it be the straw that breaks the camel's back so to speak? What do you see happening in this instance both here at home and in Iraq?
