The Crew Of This Army National Guard M1 Abrams Tank Flies An Anarchist Flag In Kuwait (Updated)

Pictures recently emerged of an M1 Abrams main battle tank from the South Carolina Army National Guard in Kuwait flying a large black flag with a stylized red “A” inside a circle, as well as one showing a crew member sporting a patch with a similar circled A and the phrase “No Masters.” These are symbols and slogans that originated with anarchist movements more than a century ago, but they’ve since made their way into far less politicized subcultures. It’s worth noting there’s no indication that this tank’s crew holds any related political beliefs.
