I hope this is the right forum, or at the very least the most relevant for this news. "Chimps, Too, Wage War and Annex Rival Territory" Apparently, it is now confirmed that chimps have long-term military goals and territorial expansion according to the New York Times. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/22/science/22chimp.html?ref=science "The objective of the 10-year campaign was clearly to capture territory, the researchers concluded. The Ngogo males could control more fruit trees, their females would have more to eat and so would reproduce faster, and the group would grow larger, stronger and more likely to survive. The chimpsâ waging of war is thus âadaptive,â Dr. Mitani and his colleagues concluded, meaning that natural selection has wired the behavior into the chimpsâ neural circuitry because it promotes their survival." Perhaps, if the ngogo are secretely reading the ARRSE and putting some of the best posts into practice.
