New Twitter is awesome.

Will Elon speak up or covet his CCP business contacts?

Well so far Ive rarely seen these videos on legacy media, but no word from Elon.

For that matter no word from Biden. Why are we not shipping arms to protesters? I thought were against dictators sending in tanks, especially against un armed civilians.

Why are we not shipping arms to your protesters? 6th of January could have ended very differently if only we had stepped up our support in a timely and efficient way. #stopthesteal.

I realize you do have guns, but what about 155 mm arty?

Do you even do SWAT raids these days without sending in tanks?

What's "new" about this?

This is exactly the sort of footage we've always seen on Twitter every time there is civil unrest.

There's also loads of coverage of tanks on the street in msm.

China has > 1 billion people and only so many tanks so ...

Maybe the protestors could use some Javelins. ;o)

murder:

A bunch of uk newspapers were running it.

But also it seems to be the same two videos - so I wonder if it is a real thing or someone just saw some tanks.

Anyway, not sure this is "new" in the sense that this is exactly how twitter has been used for years.

Musk didn't even invent the idea of being a successful business man that buys other peoples ideas and companies and pretending he invented them - he ripped of Edison :P

Yeah - I had thought it was an APC with something on it's roof but the first frame is much clearer - it is obviously some kind of military vehicle, but not a combat one.

I would say a support vehicle - perhaps a tank recovery vehicle, or bridging?

It looks like a crane on the top of it. The vehicle in front seems like it might be an APC or IFV (it looks like a big hatch on the back).

So unlikely to be part of a crackdown perhaps?

Oh, actually it could be a firefighting vehicle - that arm thing might be a lift/platform and fire hose. Then it would be the right kind of thing to bring out in support of crown control.

” Xi sends in tanks”


Call me when Chinese troops starts to shoot into people homes, like American troops did once during a BLM protest. There was a video about it. Someone posted it here.

Yeah I think it's a firefighting vehicle or fancy tow truck. China isn't rolling down the streets with tanks here. Twitter hyperbole

Its Murica, we have arms.But I am 100% on board if Norway/EU wants to send us supplies.

My point being we are now sending 60 Billion

""There's also loads of coverage of tanks on the street in msm."

Not where I'm at."

Yeah, Ive seen Yahoo post it and FOX. Ive seen others post about protests, but very much so 2ndary news.

Nhill, Some people are claiming they are armored recovery vehicles,but the Tiananmen comparison stands, tankman wasnt shot with a tank, he was run over by its treads.

So why is this not worthy of $60 billion in arms?
