Captioned version connecting corporate greed and egotistical narcissim with the current fad in the U.S. military to ride around in wheeled trucks along roads and get blown up by landmines.
Denying the FACTS that wheeled trucks are road/trail bound and easily ambushed while not offering enough protection regardless of how the hull is shaped since they are less capable than tracks at supporting weight as a lemming victim isn't being patriotic---its being STUPID and disloyal. As Patton, MacArthur and Sun Tzu remind us, its VICTORY that counts not "prolonged operations however 'brilliantly' executed" being blown up on roads/trails for over 4 years as victims isn't military success.
Look at the recent PBS documentary, "Afghanistan: the Other War", Go to 2:58 and see why the Canadians have gone to tracks in Afghanistan like other smarter armies, Brits, Dutch etc. Canadian LAV-IIIs hopelessly stuck in mud, breaks main bearing, mission aborted
"The deadly roadside bombs have killed 22 of the 26 Canadian Soldiers who have died in Afghanistan over the past six months.
But tanks tend not to be the target of choice for the Taliban because of the protection they offer to those inside.
Lt.-Col. Stephane Lafaut, the incoming commander of the Operational Mentoring and Liaison Team in Afghanistan, said Tuesday that IEDs tend to be used more by the Taliban to target other vehicles -- such as Canada's LAV3, Nyala and Bison armoured vehicles -- instead of tanks."
