It seems to me given recent events in Afghanistan, that instead of using conventional armour plating, covering any vehicle with hundreds of copies of the Koran would virtually ensure its impunity from all sides involved in the conflict. ie Nato forces won't dare interfere with it for fear of repercussions, and of course the Taliban will simply revere it.

       Reminds me of when they tried putting buckets of lard on Tel Aviv city buses to discourage suicide bombers-- apparently, you can't get into heaven if you're dripping with pig fat.

       He came back. It was all the pig fat, you see; they wouldn't let him in.

       You know, he *did* look a bit like a traditional representation of the Wandering Jew.
