Luckily the government can control things like this if we cry hard enough. I mean they're the ones who can wiretap us against our will and wanted censor the internet too... Owait ~_~
Wookiepedia says otherwise. Not really that much of a Star Wars buff myself, but...
It was a Star Wars reference...
Then I pray for the Jedi to return.
I see nothing wrong with this. Now, if they get control of the republican Senate, then there might be a problem...
True, true. Still I feel like this "tank" needs to be compared to real (modern) tanks because the media wanted to portray it as such. That's pretty much why I made that comparison xD.
We'll also throw in a free box of Twinkies! A $5000 value but yours free!
Sniper rifle rounds (e.g.
.50 BMG) pierce armor. Not a good idea tbh.
Sure... What you're saying is like shooting a paper target with a gun and expecting it to get lodged in it... It's more for a show of force. And the explosion should still happen in the cabin after penetration... It's not expensive weaponry without reason.
would still like to see an 120mm HEAT shell going through that cute little "tank".
Modern combat rely on increasingly longer distances of detection and engagement so this won't do a damn there. This is more of an armored car/transport that probably won't be used to bust through fortification. And view ports might compromise the design as someone could just stick their gun in there or just shoot through it.
Eh, tbh the US should open up it's borders to a more reasonable amount; it's like you guys are trying to hog the riches of the world (and failing at it, too). I mean it's as if the US is an exclusive club for the mental elite (though kind of more like a bourgeois) with little for the poor. Loosening the immigration process will bring in more immigrants searching for lower-paying work (unlike most of the rich/smart Chinese/Indian people), bringing back factories from overseas for Americans too. However, social security might kill it in a few decades... Damn FDR and his socialism... Then again, I wouldn't call myself an expert on this, but those are my 2 cents from my observations... Still, I feel that most of America's worker rights are helping to kill itself, but that might just be cynicism.
Some of the cheap labor in Mexico must have brains and decided not to try, or else the US economy might have been fixed by now with the re-influx of jobs...
Too bad that's not funny. Reversing arguments only works against complete morons that can only view on side or hypocrites.
