Evil effectively eliminated

Granted, I'm not exactly up on theology... "New Testament": It's a mighty name for a 70-ton battle tank. The biblical words are neatly printed on the main gun of an M1A1 Abrams tank rolling along somewhere near Haditha, Iraq. To the Marines of the 4th Tank Battalion, "New Testament" is a fierce beacon and impervious to insurgent mortar fire. ...But I'm confused; isn't it the Old Testament that's the one full of the smiting and vengeance and righteous wrath, and whatnot?
