Gloomy tank graveyards hold the rusting bones of war

From Afghanistan to Eritrea and Kuwait to Laos, many regions play host to these mechanical reminders of war: huge cemeteries filled with decaying tanks, witnessing the slow destruction of machines that have outlived their own destructive purposes.

Environmental Graffiti has collected photos of these tank graveyards from around the world. Be sure to check out their site for even more images of post-war decay. [via Presurfer]
