The Horror

Saw this pic posted on another forum.

This will bring a tear to your eye. How would you like to live near this wreaking yard?



More pix and a story here but the translation I got didn't shed a whole lot of light.

So sad. Upon encountering this horrific sight, I would shed one single Man-tear for the fallen, then promptly start scavenging the hell out of that giant pile of parts.

I'd say it's a military can point, but there's no way to access the parts. Sad stuff
