Examples of underbelly in a Sentence

  1. Andy Parker:

    … [F]or all the wonderful things that Google and Facebook have created, there is this underbelly that we're seeing, and I think the easiest solution — and it may not be the most popular — is you eliminate their protection from any liability. And if people have legitimate lawsuits, let them have their day in court. I can't do it, because they have unlimited protection.

    I stand up on overwatch and we start rolling forward. And 30 seconds later, I see a Marine in the open. I see a fireball.

So it creates a big shaped charge. And it just sliced right through the aluminum underbelly of this Amphibious Assault Vehicle hitting all the jet fuel, hitting all the 50,000 rounds of ammunition.
