    Comment: What are all these tanks about ? Doesn't seem like our government plans to stop war, hope these aren't for inside the US. Remember NDAA



    Some made a point that these tanks aren't painted for the desert.

    I've seen military iron transported by highway and train as long as I can remember. Yeah, I haven't seen THAT MANY before but how else is the DOD supposed to move them? The fact that they are in woodland camo doesn't really mean much, the military has been applying area specific camo to new equipment as it arrives probably since forever.

    Also, where were they going? Any idea about that?

    I lived in Santa Cruz for 5 years. I went to basic training at Fort Ord and my MOS was at Fort Sill. Fort Ord, which is in Monterey. a short drive from Santa Cruz. Tanks going to or from a military base is hardly unusual.

    Hope that helped ease the panic.

    No, haven't you been paying attention? The nutters are all abuzz about FEMA camps, Military exercises and the coming police State.

    Ohh just a quick question, were you one of the liberal dumb asses that claimed Bush would take over the Country rather then have a peaceful transition? If so don't post in these delusional threads as you were just as bad 4 years ago.

    The DOD moving tanks form one locale to another doesn't mean that the Police State isn't coming. It's just not directly related to it.

    Perhaps you haven't read the NDAA?

    You're no longer in the Military, it's ok to have an independent thought every now and again. It's ok to question authority.

    We on the outside call that "Free Speech".

    Did anyone ever stop to think about the fact we've pulled out of Iraq and have brought our troops home?

    Then..........think about shipping vehicles on RORO ships, sending them back to the US, and to a shipping port so they could be carried back to their ORIGINAL BASE?

    These conspiracy theories are pretty fucking stupid.

    As far as no desert paint? See above, they're RETURNING the tanks, and as part of their fitting out, they are re-painted original color.

    See? Nothing unusual or amiss.
