Not Since the Iran-Iraq War

Tim Blair contrasts a quote from Robert Fisk and one from Mark Colvin, who was on the same inspection trip. Fisk says that "Not since the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War have I seen the Iraqi Army deployed like this."

I believe that this is the first time I've ever seen Fisk get it right:

Here is an Iraqi tank from the Iran-Iraq war.
Burning Iraqi tank from Iran-Iraq war.

Here is an Iraqi tank from the current campaign.
