Whether they have 450 tanks or not, they haven't counterattacked anyone with them yet.

[b]"A renegade army of 5,000 Taleban soldiers with 450 tanks, armoured carriers and pick-up trucks is locked in a tense stand-off with American special forces in Afghanistan.[/b] About 440 of those are probably pickups — And the few tanks among 'em ain't long for this world, now that we know about them!

"450 tanks, armored carriers and pickup trucks..." Just misread it. Its probably: 5 Tanks (4 of them half buried in sand since only the main gun works) 1 armored carrier (toyota with corrugated tin strapped to the side) 444 toyota pickups

However many tanks they have or not, this could get messy, and we might have to pay our dues in Afghanistan, a battlefield which has not proven very hospitable to any outside force who enters into the "Great Game".

If they do have 450 tanks, roll in the A-10s and the AH-64s and let those boys have some fun.

Why haven't those tanks been taken care of before now? Haven't we learned yet that the only good Taliban is a dead Taliban? Eric The(JihadJohnnyWalker-Hey,WeMissedOne!)Hun[>]:)]

He he, Considering it is a British reporter- and they know even less than American ones about anything lethal- its just something that moves, has a gun, and looks like it is semi-bullet proof. If the 101st has unloaded its Apaches its FEEDING TIME. Hopefully we will get to see how well Longbow works [:D] Of course the problem so far is that the damn Air Force keeps killing EVERYBODY with their B1's and B52's and not leaving anyone alive to even interrogate!

Reminds me a joke for some reason... So this cocky American Special forces guy peeks over a ridge and taunts the Taleban general. The general sends a platoon. They never return. The cocky American soldier flips off the Taleban general and taunts him further. The general sends 1000 soldiers and 50 tanks. There are some loud noises and explosions and none return. The American calls the Taleban general a pussy, flips him off and gives him a BA. The general sends [b]"A RENEGADE army of 5,000 Taleban soldiers with 450 tanks, armoured carriers and pick-up trucks..."[/b] over the hill. Only one tattered and bloody man returns.... It's a trap he says.... "there's two of them".

How many times do I have to tell those silly Brits???......When we say "TANK" we don't mean "WATER BUFFALO"!!!!

No problem!.....Time to call in the good old B-52s. Carpet bombing.

[i]from article[/i] They took with them 450 tanks and vehicles, rocket-propelled grenades, machine-guns and rifles.

450 pickup trucks, RPG's, machine guns & rifles. This is a high-tech outfit....how will we deal with this? I can't believe any of them would be stupid enough to gather in quantity in a stationary position and "stand off". One of the biggest benefits of Jihad against the US is cluster bombs....

How many toy soldier kits do you need to end up with 450 tanks? LOL [spank]

5,000 troops and 450 tanks? [shock] RIGHT! Even if the numbers are close, [>:/] that’s just 5,000 more more of those bastards for our forces to exterminate, and 450(?) cheesy pieces of shit tanks to play target practice with. I for one really hope they are all bunched up. That means we don’t have to search too hard to find and kill them. As far as the tanks are concerned…well; frankly I wouldn’t get all that worked up over that either. Even if there are that many, that’s just more easy targets for us. Those cheesy Russian T-55s are easy meat for virtually every AT weapon available to our infantry…but why bother? Just put the sneak on them, lase the shit out of them and call in the flyboys. I mean…that’s what they get paid for isn’t it? A few LGBs, some cluster bombs and a few FAEs and a bunch more of these bastards get to be martyrs. [-=(_)=-] WOOHOO…I would really like to see what an FAE would do…Crispy! I really doubt those numbers are right…but who cares. Kill them all...don't arrest them...don't put them in a POW camp...no trials...just exterminate them. [kill] [marines]
