Look out below

The U.S. military is preparing to fight inside cities — by tunnelling underneath them with a giant mechanical worm called — I kid you not — the Underminer.

Drug cartels, the terrorist groups Hezbollah and Hamas, and the Islamic State have all broken out their shovels to dig underground tunnels capable of moving drugs, fighters, and equipment.

This would just be America’s over-the-top, way-cool response, and a way to get supplies to troops in densely packed cities, where travelling the streets wouldn’t be safe.

It gets cooler, because the Underminer uses inflating artificial muscles to scoot itself forward … just like a regular worm.

“Nothing is beneath us!”
