Seems like it's hurting Facebook's personal information sales... But good for them trying to fight the law; at least they have enough balls to say that they're unhappy with it. It sure beats all the worthless arguments people get into online who don't actually ever bother to do anything about it. That includes all the people who complain about Facebook's privacy policy/business model/etc but still use the damned thing.

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.

You are false data.
