The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle is being touted as a new weapon against those pesky insurgencies that resist Uncles Sam-ski’s invasions, occupations, and bloody offerings of democracy.
“Light?” This beast weighs seven tons! It supposedly offers better bomb blast protection than the Hummer. And along with it’s improved maneuverability, invading mercenaries (or the robots that will ultimately replace them) should have no problem traveling to and entering any caves where evil doers hide out.
And with any new toys the US Collective’s hired killers procure, it’s always a rock solid, safe bet that any excuse (be it any perceived threat or new war) will justify a reason to use it.
And build them by the thousands.
Back in the Homeland, of course this means billions for defense contractors and their laboring stooges. As always, more “prick waving” and killing brown people means jobs, jobs, jobs!
And if an unexpected shortage of war zones occurs, any surplus of these death machines can be graciously donated to local law enforcement.
You can feel safe knowing that during your shelter in place, these “light” tactical vehicles will be cruising your neighborhood streets, keeping any dissenters, Sovereign Citizens, Free Staters and Occupiers from interfering with the status quo.
Resistance is Mandatory
