1) Thats an insurgent propaganda video, and thus your point is invalid.

2) Some of the stills in the montage weren't even of Abrams, and some were of the same vehicle.

3) The US destroys a damaged tank if it's too challenging to withdraw it. Which is another reason why that video is invalid: the insurgent could have just as easily taken a photo after the tank was destroyed by friendly forces.

Heres a link, which I suggest you read. Yahoo answers, but highly informative none the less, especially if you know nothing: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index … 120AAArsDg

Yes I have read it,
and it negates your implied  point that M1abrams are invincible.
They are not.

When have I said they were invincible? On page three I said:

Short of DU penetrators and airborne munitions, the best an infantryman can hope to do is disable the tank. The Abrams has a stellar record in survivability, and another stellar record in crew survivability should the armor be compromised. And when you consider that A2s are being upgraded with TUSK, and that the A3 is due to come out in 2017, the Abrams will take just about anything you throw at it, and then it will run over you.

Are they invinvible? No. Are they incredibly hard to destroy? Yes.

That is why I used word "implied"
But a large enough IED can harm them as your yahoo source says.

answering the question at the first page. There are new forms of energy we can use today so if we run out of oil, we can just use some other form of energy.

Because even when I say how significant damage can be done on an Abrams, I still somehow imply they're invincible? What?

True, but it took 1500 lbs of explosives, and not too many people have that lieing around.
