So most of us by now have heard of that tragic accident that occurred recently that killed eight Marines when a 60mm mortar blew up.

Now the Pentagon has suspended the use of the weapon pending further investigation.

I can understand investigating that lot number for faulty rounds... but suspending the whole weapon altogether? That seems like an overreaction to me... especially when the 60 is such a widely used weapon for the grunts.
