Dude, it just some person's poor attempt at political satire.I don't know how these people even figure that they are fooling anyone. It's beyond me, how there's always a sucker out there that falls for these scams. A $3 mill tank (back in '98 ), that would cost tons of money to ship back to CONUS, for 35K? I'd like to meet the fool that shells out any kind of cash for that, I've got some good swamps here in Florida that I'd like to sell 'em.
Anyone know what it would cost to ship a 135,200 lbs tank halfway around the world? Really makes you think about where your tax dollars are going. I'm guessing they'd have to drain the fuel tank to ship it unless you want to just drive it home. The good news is that gas turbine isn't terribly picky about fuel (kerosene, diesel, gasoline, ethanol, whatever)....Well the seller just informed me the tank is in Iraq, and I would have to make shipping arrangements myself, BUT he'd take the SV in for 5K and says the tank has fresh oil and a full tank of fuel.
Hey, give it time...Obama will start selling off our military equipment for pennies on the dollar as he drives our economy into the ground. It'll be just like the Soviets selling off their arsenals to cover their national debt. Use to be anyone could buy a MiG or Su Fighter for under a million along with some spare parts.
So what I'm saying is WAIT...Obama will give you a better deal and you might get free shipping if you select the Buy It Now feature! I'm holding out for an F/A18 but in the meantime, I'll have to pick up my twin turbojet endorsement.
Fixed it for yaSilly how people create FUD on the internet. The economy was driven into the ground by some complex issues SINCE THE EARLY 1990s.
