“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

All in a Day's Work. Suicide Bomber Attempts to Destroy A1 Tank, but Explosives Fail to Detonate

A suicide bomber has just attempted to destroy an A1 Abrams tank, but the explosives in his car have failed to explode. American troops use a robot to approach the car and detonate the explosives.

  1. If the object was to detonate the explosives then why not use direct weapons fire.

    A 40mm grenade fired from a 203, could have done that job.
    Not SWAT style, but cost effective and quick.
