My squad got a taste of Iraqi Police tactics tonight on patrol. We were patrolling past an area that we had raided a few days ago and noticed a large IP presence there, about 10 trucks and about 40 IP's. Let me backtrack by saying that IPs scare the crap out of me. They rarely wear uniforms and most often can be seen in bullet proof vests and ski masks. They are actually scarier looking than most terrorists. Tonight was no different. After about the third time we drove by this area the IPs were gone, but they had left remnants of what they were doing...a burning car. We really don't know what happened, but we're guessing there was an argument, or they found someone they didn't like. Regardless, I think I saw Denzel Washington pull this one in Man on Fire.
