So the Pentagon can’t even keep track of freaking planes and tanks, and now wants more money (which doesn’t include cost of Iraq war or Homeland Security). WTF? How can you not know where planes are? They’re huge! So are tanks! and i won’t even go into how scary it is that missile launchers have vanished!
Psst, don’t tell anybody, but I got 'em. The home owners assosciation has been pissing me off and I’m planning a coup. Nobody, but nobody insults my lawn ornaments. My army of garden gnomes will dance to the lamentations of their women while I rule with an iron fist.
Keep talking like that and you’ll have to turn over your tinfoil, my friend. This is even better for paranoia.
Missing tanks and planes and missiles (oh my!) can be explained in a number of easy and believable ways, ranging from losses in deniable operations through to bored soldiers deciding to see how long it would take to bury an entire tank in sand.
The mysterious APPEARANCE of equipment, on the other hand, provides wonderful fuel for speculation ranging from the Shadow Government’s Really Really Secret Army forgetting to take them back when they were done doing Really Sneaky Things under cover of a standard military operation through to The Alien Masters salting Earth’s Last And Best Defence with artifacts of their own design that only LOOK like standard issue stuff but do Mysterious Things whenever they receive their instructions from the Secret Moon Base.
Throw in some references to the Montauk Project, Chemtrails, Denver International Airport, and the Freemasons, add a few more unnecessary capital letters, and you’re there with a pretty good whacko conspiracy theory.
Sadly I think some of these ‘lost’ items may have been secretly diverted to other governments.
In news I can almost prove I used to live near an arms manufacturing plant. As expected they accounted for EVERY item. You couldn’t get away with stealing a hand grenade because they expect so many boxes from a production run and a box would be short but if a WHOLE CASE is missing well then someone must have just written down the wong number on this form here, I’ll just scratch out 39 and pencil in 38, that’s gotta be right cause there ain’t no way you can steal a whole case right?
(some of the parties involved got busted for using some rather questionalble fishing techniques)
If one of the missing tanks is an M48, I have a pretty good idea where it is. It’s sitting at the back of a tank park at Camp Funston, Fort Riley, KS. As least that is where it was in August 1965, when the 2/4 Cav shipped to Vietnam and left a spare behind.
