The MRAP is not Resistance proof

It’s the critical difference between “water resistant” and “water proof.” Remember resistant those watches? You could wear them near the water.
Mine resistant troop shuttle bus deployed to Iraq.
The US suffered its first solder casualty in a new MRAP (Mine Resistant, Ambush Protected) vehicle, a sort of Brinks Jeep. Four times the size of the Hmmvee, the MRAP is designed to weigh formidably and be not impervious (pervious?) to IEDs. The new troop transport is mine-resistant. I hope this concept gels with American soldiers: it will not be Resistance-proof.
