No. of Recommendations: 20
Well, given that there is a drive in Congress to buy 300 more battle tanks, I would have to assume it is either Canada or Mexico.

See, we already have 3000 tanks on active service.

And there are another 2400 perfectly good tanks in mothballs somewhere in Nevada.

So the idea that we need another 300 can only be justified by two reasons:

First, there is an imminent threat of invasion cross one of our land borders, which would result in massive loss of our current inventory, which is 180% of what we currently need, while still fighting a ground war.

Second, hmmm -- stimulus of the economy through enriching defense companies with needless spending? Something like that.
