An utterly massive trainload of American military tanks and heavy armor was video recorded by civilians in Metarie, Louisiana this past Sunday. The very unusual sight of so many main battle tanks being moved by rail has folks asking "Is America going to war?"
The video below was shot from the parking lot of Walmart on Louisiana Route 48 eastbound as the road nears Louisiana Route 90.
In the video, a very large train filled with tanks and all manner of other heavy war-fighting equipment can be seen on the elevated railroad coming off the Huey P. Long Bridge which crosses the Mississippi River.
In the video, the train appears to be heading NORTH from New Orleans - but its destination is unknown to those recording the video.
The Google map below allows you to zoom-in to see the railroad bridge from street level. It also allows you to follow those railroad tracks and find that they bend to the northeast soon after the location shown in the video.
Turning to the northeast sort of leaves out the Mexican border, but it certainly does not rule out movement toward the US east coast for possible deployment to Europe.
New Orleans is a giant Port City with vast capabilities to load and unload ships traveling the Gulf of Mexico or elsewhere. If the tanks were destined to . . . oh, let's say South America (Venezuela) . . . it seems to the average person they might be shown moving south, toward the Port of New Orleans. But this train is moving North.
So where did this trainload of heavy armor originate and where is it heading? The Pentagon DECLINES TO COMMENT.
