Hey, if you have a tank, the terrorists who have put Keene high on their priorities list will counter with molotov cocktails and grenades. To fend off people approaching with molotov cocktails and grenades, the tank will have to be equipped with a 50 caliber machine gun or maybe a flamethrower. To avoid the machine gun bullets and the flames, the invading terrorists will bring their own tanks and flamethrowers to Keene. Ultimately, the only way to defeat those terrorists will be with tactical nukes. That may kill the entire population of Keene and flatten the town, but to paraphrase what somebody said during the Viet Nam war, sometimes you have to destroy everybody in a village to save them.

Crankily yours,
The New York Crank

I live about 60 miles north of Keene, and I'm concerned enough about Keene that I'm about to email my selectmen that we HAVE to do something in response. Otherwise, Keeniacs will be able to just roll in and grab whatever they want!
