In it's war against terror, the US Army is confiscating motorcycles in Iraq. Many of the attacks have been done by fanatics riding motorcycles with bombs on board, and since they're difficult to stop, the weave through security points and blow themselves up.

However, the big damage seems to be accomplished by cars and trucks (they do have a larger carry-load)? So is the US Army going to forbid cars ??
