I just want it to go away, to tell you the truth.” – Mark Oberholtzer in Texas plumber’s old truck resurfaces in Syria, mounted with terrorists’ guns [at foxnews.com] Post Views: 25 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Dunbar-Ortiz: America’s Gun Problem is Rooted in White Nationalism China’s State-Run News Agency Is Disturbed By Texas’s New Constitutional Carry Law California Will Argue to Reinstate Its Ban on ‘High Capacity’ Magazines Before the 9th Circuit Today 58 COMMENTS where can i get one of those? but serious question: has arming rebels ever turned out to be in our best interests ? Reply No. It has NEVER worked out well for us in the long run. Reply 1776? But I guess those rebels were largely already armed. Reply And I thought I had a decent truck gun… Reply I thought we had a good second amendment!! I can’t even find 22lr ammo let alone this! Reply Good lesson. If you own a business, remove the decals when you sell equipment. Oh, I have to ask, did the gun come standard, or was that an option? 🙂 Reply Another question. How is the gun on stubborn clogs? Reply I need to replace my septic tank. One of these would make it a lot more fun, if not easier. Reply Compared to Liquid Plumber or Drano, simply put, a lot of people get to use their money-back guarantee when they try “gun!” Reply What? Marketing 101: There’s no such thing as bad publicity. Reply I was just joking yesterday with a coworker on how most technicals are a Toyota pickup. ”Terror chooses Toyota” I said. I work for Ford… Reply Seeing what they do with Nissans and Toyota/HiLux over in the Middle East and Africa, we should be able to do a Texas Technical with a lifted 3/4 ton Duramax or Powerstroke. Why limit yourself to one crew served weapon. We could have ourselves a 21st century version of the British LRDG and SAS vehicles. That’s what I’m talking about! Reply Even better…flat bed with a goose neck trailer hauling 4 40mm bofors and a 134 on the tongue. Reply “Duramax or Powerstroke” Cummins Fastest [diesel pickup] I ever saw was a 4×4 F-350….. running a 12V Cummins with twins: Reply ‘”Terror chooses Toyota” I said.’ The terrorists are crazy, not stupid. Reply It’s completely idiotic that people would assume the plumber is shipping trucks to terrorists. It’s also completely idiotic to not cover up identifying markings before selling/donating/trashing a thing. Reply Exactly.. even if this truck stayed in Texas you wouldn’t want your name/phone number on a vehicle that you no longer own. Reply His free advertising idea came with an unexpected downside. Reply Yup. “All publicity is good publicity” falls short when rampaging, decapitating, marauders are sporting your logo. New approach: “We do to clogs what they do to infidels.” Or more likely the dealer told him not to worry about it, they would take care of the details in order to close the deal quicker. I wouldn’t call the man idiotic for falling for that. Reply This is exactly what has been reported. I once did a trade in with a dealer. He was supposed to do the transfer. Several months later I got dunning letter from a college.turns out the dealer didn’t do the transfer and neither did the new owner. Don’t believe dealer promises. Reply Wow. Texas to Syria. That’s a long and arduous drive for an old truck. . Good truck. Shoulda kep it! . Reply “Ooh, I really like this one! It’s got some dude’s name on it, they’ll never know it was us!” -terrorists on the black market used car lot Reply Wonder if mounting that gun voided the warranty? Reply lol I bet those terrorists now charge outrageous prices, and refuse to work on weekends! Reply A lot of stolen vehicles turned up in Iraq for use as VBIEDs Reply We had a DBIED (Donkey Borne Improvised Explosive Device) in Zabul province once. No coalition injuries. But very, very messy. Rained donkey for about a minute. Reply For some reason, I found that incredibly funny. Friend: wow, look at that, it’s raining cats and dogs! JWT: you ain’t seen a thing, till you’ve seen it rain donkey. Reply We all laughed, later. When they come here, because we all know they are flooding across our southern border, they can look him up for all their plumbing needs. :):):) Reply Who did Mark-1 Plumbing expect to buy his work truck after he mounted an anti-aircraft gun in the back?? 🙂 Note to self remove name and gun before selling truck. Reply Can’t stress this enough boys and girls!!!! Always remove identifying marks and stickers when you sell a vehicle!!!!(double face palm!!!!!) Reply Haha, joke’s on them, that looks like one of the old 6.0L Powerjoke trucks. They’re going to have a fun time carrying that gun out of the desert when the EGR coolers plug up with soot and the engine blows its head gaskets and pukes its guts all over the sand. Ask anyone who ever owned one of those knows its not if but rather when. Reply Curious if their terrorist cell has enough funding to replace the injectors in it… *shudders* Reply Good point! lets send them more Fords. Reply Might backfire on us, another reason for them to hate Americans… Then again, bankrupting the enemy is probably the most effective way to win a war. Sounds like my 2005 Excursion sick-point-uh-oh powerjoke. It has 100k on it, and in the last 12 months… * $700 for a new FICM (fuel injection control module) * $2200 to fix fuel leaks and find/fix oil leaks (not the EGR cooler – yet) * $3200 to find/fix high-pressure oil system problem (standpipes, various O-rings, HPOP, IPR, etc.) Then there’s the need to remove and clean (if possible, otherwise replace) an EGR valve every 5k miles. Who the eff thought it was a good idea to run sooty diesel exhaust through a little valve assembly, as well as tiny passages in an intake manifold? And who thought it was a good idea to create an entire high-pressure oil system for the sole purpose of opening fuel injectors? Reply Sounds to me like a bunch of bitter 6.0 owners who don’t know how to properly care for that engine. If you actually knew a thing or two about engines you would know it’s a great engine if done right. Reply Where is Mom’s Demand Action Against Plumbing Trucks? Ban trucks! Ban plumbing trucks! Ban plumbing! Reply I’d support a ban on plumber’s crack! Reply Back in the day, plumbers used to work with lead. (The word “plumber” comes from Latin plumbum, and so does the chemical symbol for lead (Pb). Rome used lead pipes.) I guess now plumbers use lead in a different way. Reply Why is Ali Bubba’s face blurred? Are they actually worried about a defamation suit from a jihadi tail-gunner? Reply I guess these days dealers will do anything to get you into one of their cars or trucks, including a complimentary machine gun mounted in the back. I remember when the only thing they used to offer was a full tank of gas. Oh how times have changed. Gotta move the inventory somehow. Reply They’re not terrorists, they are freedom fighters. If they were in the area formerly known as Iraq THEN they’d be terrorists. At least that’s what the neo-cons and pro-war progressives say. Reply Well it’s not like we don’t have verified data that the Obama Administration is arming these guys or anything… Reply Sorry no sympathy for the ex owner. Even if your truck does not end up in the middle east you always take any advertising off before selling. Americans steal, kill and destroy here too… Reply Photoshop. Look it up. Reply Sorry, but no: http://www.snopes.com/photos/automobiles/syriatruck.asp Reply “Ford, built jihad tough” Reply Read The Great War for civilisation (no typo, they use an s for civilisation across the pond) by Robert Fisk. In chapter 1 his Taliban driver tells him “Toyota is good for jihad” freakin hilarious. Reply Mark 1 Plumbing.. Blowing holes in our compitition one ford truck at a time Reply is that a Russian 14.5MM cannon? Serious mounting job to keep it from shearing off. Hard hitting light cannon. Reply ZU-23 (23mm) Reply That’s actually kinda cool. Maybe I’ll see my ’88 Camry-camino turned into a technical someday. Reply Well that’s awkward… Reply When i first saw this I just thought it was some locals hog hunting in Texas. Reply Truck cost 800 bucks at a dealer in Texas. And then what? 5 grand to ship it to syria? Who do these folks think they are to waste money like that? The U.S. .gov. Reply Any expert plumber in Reading can help you care ffor kitchen plumbing problems. Add enough water towards the tub oor shower so your head from the pluynger is submerged, aand hold a wet washcloth tightlky up against the overflow holes across the spout. The figures released by the Government’s English Housing Survey reveal that one out oof 6 households are now living in privately rented accommodation.
