      Soldiers will no longer be allowed to wear body armor other than the
      protective gear issued by the military, Army officials said Thursday,
      the latest twist in a running battle over the equipment the Pentagon
      gives its troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

      Army officials told The Associated Press that the order was prompted by
      concerns that soldiers or their families were buying inadequate or
      untested commercial armor from private companies - including the
      popular Dragon Skin gear made by California-based Pinnacle Armor.

      "The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary,
      in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether
      hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the
      very definition of tyranny."
      -- James Madison
