    Nice two-tone camouflage — but I think I saw all the tanks nevertheless.

    Why are the Russians so fond of driving their tanks around in their cities?

      Reminds the population who is in charge, just in case they forget.

      The tank driver certainly seemed to be having fun.

    Could have been way worse. Trudeau could have been standing beside the post.

      That would be way better!

    During the Hungarian uprising of 1956, liquid soap spread over the cobbles was used to slow tanks enough to be better targets for Molotov cocktails.

    The position and number of white wheels is some sort of secret code.

    First off, they are using the Tanks to Tear Up the road so that they can create work to repair the road. Thank goodness they can’t drive . In case of War they may not be able to shoot either!

    It’s worse on a motor cycle when the rain starts to pour. Not only does the oils on road make in slippery to use the brakes, but the tire ruts fill up and the steering starts to float .
