and the a-holes who are pushing these tank (factory at Lima Ohio) are two repukican deficit hawks. As usual they only preach deficits when it doesn't affect their district or state. Scumbags both.

Yet in the case of the Abrams tank, there’s a bipartisan push to spend an extra $436 million on a weapon the experts explicitly say is not needed.

The republicans don't preach deficits, they preach not spending over what we take in...

What we want cut from the budget is baby momma with four kids from four different daddies spending their EBT cards at Burger King.....

You could by 100 new fighter jets..

Idiot.

Absolutley....the other bozo was talking about republicans voting to keep the tanks going to protect their jobs...their constituents work at these places...

The dems who voted against the gun bill did so to protect THEIR jobs as their constituents warned them.

Try to keep up, bozo.

Read the above post, pinhead. I'm not a liberal....can't stand their tax-spend economics, their blame game and hypocrisy.

You referred to republicans keeping their jobs, I referred to hypocritical demorat politicians NOT following party lines in the gun bill to protect THEIR jobs. Rural voters warned democrat politicians not to vote for it.

Same thing..........you people are as funny as a fart in a space suit.

Im the bozo yet i am not the only one here whom didnt understand what you were trying to say. Maybe if you use complete senteces and try to not be so smug, and better articulate your points, you might not get called out of them.

That would be common sense, but not for you bozo.(see i can do it too but it gets you/us no where)

Tanks are obsolete if used on other Nations. their not obsolete here in America. just like homeland security don't need 10 times more ammunition than the entire us Military. their only one reason this Nation needs Tanks and very large amounts of Ammunition for Homeland Security.

get smacked? I again am not sure what you are refering to as you do a piss more job of trying to make your point. You type a bunch of jabber and me as well as other question what it is you are acutally trying to say and you see the responce you give?

At this point, it doesnt matter if you would have been right or wrong because its apparent that you cant articulate what you are trying to say into comprehensible words. And when asked that you try to do so, you start with the "You R BoZ0!!! HAHA Get SMACKED"

So not only does you grammer seem like it was written by a junior high kid, you debate like one too.

If we shut down The M1 production lines then how will Obama be able to give to our frenemies,like Egypt?

All B/S aside,we developed the Abrahms in responce to a cold war threat. It is too big,too expensive and advanced for the asymetrical warfare we have fought this last ten years. Tank heavy armored divisions have their place in a modern Army but not to the point of becoming hampered with such beasties with really limited roles. We could mothball maybe 1/2 of what we have and go to lighter fighting vehicles that would be more versatile in the kind of warfare we can expect in the future.

pretty much. We have bombs that can destroy whole columns of our own Abrahms right now. Apaches with a LongBow in there will also be just as effective against armor. What we need is more programmers/hackers as well as the government changing their view on some of these types of characters as they are hard to recruit if you are trying to put them in prisons. As much as the civil liberties crowd might not like it, drones are also coming to a town near you. Whether military or civilian the technology is to cheap/effective to not use. And space, that is where our long term military superiority should be focused.
