Had the displeasure of watching the last 5 minutes of andy rooney. He was talking about US weapons systems and how much they cost with a bent of they were a waste of money.

Well didn't care what he thougt anyway, but he talked about the M1 Abrams and how expensive they are with a video of one burning in Iraq.

POS.

Why were you watching "60 Minutes"? Was the drug store out of "The Enquirer"?


just go to the woodpile, pick up a log and whack yourself in the forehead a few times the next time you get the urge to watch it.

Remember the 60 Minutes is not news, it is entertainment and should be treated as such.

Andy Rooney is a fool. ANY armored vehicle can be killed. The M1 affords its crew SOOOO much more protection than the '60 series it replaced (I've crewed both over 24 yrs). To point to anectodal examples of one vehicle's misfortune without considering the overall performance of the system would condemn just about every platform every fielded.

All the old farts will be gone from 60 Minutes after this coming year. The retirement of the producer of the last 25 or so years (Don Hewitt) & their focus on attracting younger viewers will ensure that. Doesn't mean they'll be any better or less liberal, only younger, ala` Steve Kroft.

Ya know...I'm just a civilian....but it burns me when I hear ANYONE who isn't serving talk about what a waste of money military spending is. I feel we should give our guys EVERY bit of protection and all the best we can if we're gonna expect them to put their lives on the line for our country. Andy Rooney can stick it as far as I'm concerned!

I was kinda shocked when he mentioned we had 8,000 M1 tanks.

That is one helluvan arsenal of badass tanks.

I was also kinda surprised to see F-15's mothballed in one a those Arizona boneyards.

[AndyRooney]Didja ever wonder how guys like me continue on TV, when much of what I say is so unbelieveably irrelevant?[/AndyRooney]

CBS just seems to be geared to old dumb asses.

Never watch it.

Andy Rooney sucks dick for cheeseburgers, who gives a fuck what he has to say?
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 9:38:43 PM EDT
He's a veteran of WW2 and knows well the need for good weapons systems and the wastage of war. Does he complain about WW2? Not that I've ever heard. He's a turncoat idiot liberal mealymouth!
