These photos, while generating extreme anger and sadness, eerily seem to me like a cross of photos from Pearl Harbour and from the surface of Mars. We better win it, and our country better get the collective balls and united national psyche together to support the guys there (as it is clear our enemy is engaged in sophisticated psy war to wear impatient, short-term, big victory-minded Americans down), otherwise I fear another loss which USA history and prestige cannot well afford.

My initial response was surprise. I have come to think of the M1A1 as nearly invincible.

But I am mistaken. Chobham plate is 25 years old and technology is always advancing. The design of the M1A1 has a very few vulnerabilities. It is inevitable that our tanks will become more and more vulnerable as the technology marches on.
