THANK YOU FOR THE LITERARY ANALYSIS.

I SHOULD BE GRATEFUL IF SOMEONE ON THE SCIENTIFIC SIDE COULD TELL ME EXACTLY WHAT IS THE ROADSIDE BOMB NOW SO LETHALLY WIDESPREAD IN IRAQ.  WHY IS IT SO EFFECTIVE?  HOW IS IT IN GENERAL CONSTRUCTED?  HOW DOES IT PIERCE ARMOURED VEHICLES? 

MY THANKS AGAIN,

ROBERT ELEGANT
