The massive logistical feat began July 7 and is moving hundreds of Abrams tanks, Bradley fighting vehicles, Humvees and artillery pieces to the southern port city of Busan to be shipped out under tight security.

U.S. army spokeswoman Maj. Kathleen Johnson said the transfer of military hardware to Busan is ongoing. But citing security reasons, she could not say when the transfer would be complete, when the equipment would be shipped to Iraq or how many ships would be involved.

The equipment includes hundreds of tracked vehicles and hundreds of wheeled vehicles, and is arriving around-the-clock at the Busan port, where soldiers are working two 12-hour shifts, she said.

"This is a very intensive operation, involving a large amount of equipment," Johnson said. "The scale of this operation is about five times that of what we ordinarily do."

Isn't this type of massive redeployment to Iraq rather dangerous given the always tense situation in Korea?
