Well, I got an alignment not to long ago, and It has f'ed up my tire enough to make it go boom in under 3000 miles.

My Gold Euro is pretty chewed up too.........

It looks like too much toe out with a decent but acceptable amount of negative camber.
If the toe were better, camber alone wouldn't have done that. (unless it was EXTREME and left unchecked)
Also guys, keep in mind that regular inspection is important.
If you drive on tires that are showing excessive wear, you accept the consequences if/when they happen.
That sort of wear doesn't happen overnight.

Not necessarilly, I have seen a few BMW's that chew up tires in 1500-2000 miles because of bad alignment issues.

Then they bitch and want thier money back or have us warrenty out the tire because they got "bad tires"...all this after they were TOLD the alignment was FUBAR'ed

Absolutely it can... Have you ever seen a car with 3/4" of toe out?
