PIMP MY ARMOURED

Usually, the armoured cars we use to travel around hostile environments are pretty utilitarian affairs.

The air conditioning rarely works, you can't wind down the windows, and they handle like a skip on wheels.

Trust CNN to buck the trend.

They've taken the Hummer they used during the Iraq war to the custom shop for a few modifications.

The result is Warrior One -- a flag waving, gas guzzling, CO2 producing publicity stunt.......sorry, I meant "memorial to the journalists who risked their lives and in some cases gave their lives to tell the story of the war."

Just the thing that's needed for dodging small arms fire in....er....the local strip mall.

CNN don't need to bring the cars back and remind the families whom their love ones had died in the war!
NO! just not a war related icon...
