Afghanistan's 'tank graveyard'

Now a training ground for Afghan forces, the unofficial graveyard is full of rusting hulks left over from the Soviets' defeat.

    I'd love to relocate those old soviet tanks to a military museum

    When will we ever learn?

    Pity those guys barbecued within 'em tanks – they've got families like you and me?

    They (and once us) in the prime of youth – we cannot qualify in the military if may be e can't run 10k min.?

    If I"m in any fighting force, I can guarantee a ast end (no politics attached) – conscience is – eerybody is my brother.

    Common Europe, No. Am., etc. let us sync.

    Money is not everything.

    Thanks folks

    This is what happens when you try to occupy There Country!!! At Least We are trying to help make it better... They are smart to cell that junk to China!!! It's to bad They didn't try to fix it for themselves when They had a chance... It looked like You could take parts from one and put it to another... Then They could sell the left over as junk!!! It's to late now... I was a Tank Mechanic in the Army So I would know what I was talking about!!!
