Taliban Prepare to Meet "Joker" and "Iceman"


Hey Taliban: Say hello to my little friends:

The Breachers, metal monsters that look like a tank with a cannon, carry a 15-foot (4.5-meter) -wide plow supported by metallic skis that glide on the dirt, digging a safety lane through the numerous minefields laid by the Taliban....

Reporters watched the "Breacher" in action Wednesday as Marines edged closer to Marjah, a southern Taliban stronghold that NATO commanders plan to attack in the coming days in the largest joint NATO-Afghan operation of the Afghan war. Troops are expected to face a massive threat from mines and roadside bombs as they push into Marjah, 380 miles (610 kilometers) southwest of Kabul....

Several Breachers including "The Joker" and its twin "Iceman" will be used in the Marjah assault. Commanders hope they will make a huge difference as troops pierce through layer after layer of minefields circling the town.

But it's better than the description above. They don't just plough the ground for IEDs --- they can blow those little SOBs up, too!

Breacher porn below. Warning: expect tingly feelings in your pants.
