45. It is standard tacitics - you get out of the "kill zone".
No matter whether you are infantry or armoured, if you walk into an ambush the VERY first thing you do is get out of the "kill zone".

That means if you are driving along and you start getting fired on, YOU DON'T STOP - in fact you run like hell, otherwise you will ALL die.

Now if the truckers can't keep up, it seems the US soldiers in Iraq have decided it is their own bad luck.

Of course I have no doubt that as soon as they have escaped the "kill zone" the US soldiers will then turn around and perform a deliberate assault on the ambush site under their own terms. But by then it could be too late for the truck drivers.
