First impressions are important, I could see myself voting one or two when I saw those pyramids. It would have been better to start with something more visually exciting, for example a few panning shoots of the tanks before they start and the music kicks in.
It is also noticeable that the tanks don't have any animation, such as moving tracks and they're of a completely different style to the "war machine". I like the simple style of the war machine, you should have just replicated that with the tanks.
The typography needed work. Well, I think you just grabbed a default font, a simple mask to make the text distorted, if used subtly, would be an improvement.
I liked the idea of this flash and it could have been an interesting short so maybe I've been kind but the war machine has me heart now, with his little oil barrel.
