    CAMP PENNSYLVANIA, Kuwait (CNN) -- A soldier has been detained for questioning about a grenade and small arms attack early Sunday on a command tent of the front-line 101st Airborne Division, the U.S. Central Command said.

    The attack wounded 13 soldiers, six seriously, military officials said. The attack at about 1:30 a.m. (5:30 p.m. EST Saturday) apparently targeted top officers gathered in the Tactical Operations Center of the legendary division's 1st Brigade.

    Military criminal investigators said the suspect was recently reprimanded for insubordination and was told he would stay behind when his unit left camp for Iraq, according to Time magazine correspondent Jim Lacey, who is accompanying the unit.

    Lacey said he was told by a military commander the soldier lobbed three grenades into the operations center and yelled, "You're under attack!" A major told Lacey he saw a grenade roll by him before the explosion.

    Lacey, who was in a tent about 20 yards from the blast, helped move two of the wounded to an ambulance. "The carnage inside those tents was pretty severe," he said.

    Two soldiers were wounded by gunfire, the others by grenade fragments, the Financial Times reported. Two were treated and released and the 11 others were transported by helicopter to Army combat support hospitals in the region, Central Command said.

    Lacey said a "full company" of soldiers was guarding the perimeter of the camp before the blast, but there had been traffic in and out, including "trucks, buses, and contractors. It's not a foolproof system."

    About 2,100 soldiers are encamped at the post. Lacey said immediately after the blasts soldiers were assembled and deployed around the compound.

    This is called "fragging"

    The term comes from the word "fragmentation grenade". It was often threatened or sullenly discussed in the Vietnam War, but is relatively rare in the modern armed forces. An excellent example of why shitbirds should be immediately discharged. The Marines have a lot less of this bullshit, because they set the bar pretty high. You must be a high-school graduate to even enlist in the Marines. You have to finish Boot Camp (10% don't make it---usually because they are emotionally/ mentally unstable & can't handle stress.) The Marine Corps will shitcan you in a heartbeat if you act like you might threaten an officer.

    When I was standing "duty NCO" in the Corps, twenty-five years ago, we had an intoxicated young Marine brought into the Officer of the Day's office (the "O.D.".) He was really soused, and belligerant. The O.D., a young 1st Lieutenant, started to come around the desk, and the M.P.'s holding the guy said, "Sir, please don't come any closer--assault on an officer is a felony!" The O.D. stopped, and said, "You're right, sergeant. Take him to the Area Guard shack, put him in a shower and call me when he's sober enough to talk."

    Later I heard he thanked the officer for not pressing court-martial charges against him. He got D&D, which was processed in NJP (non-judicial punishment), lost a stripe, and was confined to the barracks except for duty hours for a couple of weeks. If he had struck or kicked that lieutenant, it would have been an automatic five years in either Leavenworth or Portsmouth Naval Prison.

    This guy in handcuffs VVV will be lucky if he isn't shot by a firing squad. If he gets convicted of fragging officers in wartime, he's fucked.

    For some reason I'm scared when we kill more outside of the battlefield than on it.
