Morocco offers US monkeys to detonate mine
From the International Desk
Published 3/24/2003 6:43 AM


RABAT, D.C., Morocco, March 24 (UPI) -- A Moroccan publication accused the government Monday of providing unusual assistance to U.S. troops fighting in Iraq by offering them 2,000 monkeys trained in detonating land mines.

The weekly al-Usbu' al-Siyassi reported that Morocco offered the U.S. forces a large number of monkeys, some from Morocco's Atlas Mountains and others imported, to use them for detonating land mines planted by the Iraqis.

The publication quoted a highly-informed source as saying, "that is not a scientific illusion but a well-known military tactic."

I wonder how you'd train a monkey to do that? Out on the mine field, as soon as a few(one) gets all blowed up, it would take some pretty re-inforced training indeed to keep the others out there. They'd figure out there's no banana at the end this time.


Anyways, it's all rather amusing, the UK and USA with their new friends, playing in the sand box...I wonder what Ethiopia brought to the coalition of the willingTM?

That's fucked up, but you have to admit, you have to laugh, if only for a second, at the thought of it........or maybe its just cause I'm stoned, oh well.

lol. are you sure they get blown up? image the look on the red cross volunteers when 2,000 wounded chimpanzees are being flown in from a chinook....maybe they are just trained to disarm them. they are agile, and light, so they probably don't set them off.

No, homeless first.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
