      Your rumor is correct.  They dug around the tank, but hell, it is a 32 ton tank!!  Since the price of scrap steel dropped to 50 a ton IN AUSTRALIA, and it costs about 50 a ton to ship it there, I dont think the Betio Sherman will move soon.

      Matt,

      Your picture did not come through. By the way, rumor has it that a Chinese scrap metal dealer attempted to remove this tank recently but failed fortunately.
