Well the smart insurgents have figured out that it's better to not get blown up in their own blast too. The problem is that they've convinced a lot
of others to do things, they themselves won't do. That's why you don't see the Osamas, Zarqawis, etc...wearing explosive vests attacking the
allies. They convince some poor schmo to do that for them. The huge problem that the allies face is the high unemployment in the region. A lot of
the attacks are not from zealots, but merely some lackey that was looking to make a few $$$(i.e. we'll give you $200 to shoot this RPG/Mortar/set
this IED against the allies), which is far more than they could hope to make otherwise. I don't doubt for a minute, if the insurgents had UAVs, that
they wouldn't use them. They've found very crude designs in the works, to try to deliver some type of warhead(HE or other).
