My husband says that sand in the gas tanks would have taken care of vehicles and planes, and that he would have done it whether ordered to or not.I can't stand it so bad that I can't even read the posts here about it. Whatever happened to destroy/damage beyond any hope of use/repair everything instead of allowing anything to be captured by the enemy? Scorched earth like the Russians did in the face of Nazi advance would be better, but if not that, at least destroy the military equipment
Aren't our intel guys smart enough/trained to evacuate or destroy sensitive/classified equipment and information anymore?!!! That used to be standard training for having access to/possession of classified information and materiel
It isn't that hard if one knows how. Wonder if Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, Coast Guardsmen, and Merchant Marines are even taught this anymore?
