Chilean Marder's and Leopard 2A4's.



I've had a focus on the happenings in the Middle East, Europe and the Pacific.

Understandable but probably not smart. Ya see we have a bunch of stuff going on in S. America that deserves attention.

How I missed it I don't know but tiny Chile is building a formidable force.  Their order of battle is impressive and they have a goal of having a fully mechanized Army by 2015.  But the photos of the Leopard 2 and Marder operating in battle formation had me asking one question.

Who are they getting ready for?

    Had the pleasure of training with their Infantry de Marina a few years ago. Still talk to a group of them, great warriors.

  3. They have some history and as they share a border thats disputed, that always leads to tension. Wouldn't say a war is just going to kick off but hey? I'm mean snookie is having a child the day before the myans say the world will end, who knows

  4. Maybe history will repeat itself with Argentina feeling it's oats (and offering a distraction to a crappy economy) but the attack to the West instead of to the East?
