German Shepherd Dogs taking over from SAS!

#1
Oh dear god, I can't believe 4,532 people signed this petition:

petition site

The United Kingdom is all set to airdrop German shepherd dogs to take on the well armed Taliban and the al-Qaeda insurgents in Afghanistan. These German Shepherds would jump from an aircraft at 25,000 feet after being parachuted in hostile terrain and would lead the assault in SAS (Special Air Service) raids to seek out Taliban and al-Qaeda insurgents. With tiny cameras fixed to their heads, these magnificent canines, by putting their own life in danger, would beam live TV pictures back to the troops, warning of ambushes and showing enemy leaders locations. In fact, The SAS source admits that "The dogs will be exposed to very high levels of danger on these operations."

This absurd and cruel tactic of deploying dogs in situations that are too dangerous for soldiers has been devised to cut down the soaring casualty rates in Afghanistan and Iraq. These valiant but powerless and vulnerable dogs would have to helplessly face the armed terrorists who do not mind blowing themselves up. In fact for them, these dogs at best could be target practice.

Instead of putting the lives of these beautiful creatures on the block, the SAS should probably devise alternative ways like sending automated robots to save the precious lives of the soldiers. But this despicable and outrageous plan has been adopted only because the poor German shepherd dogs cannot stand up for themselves.

Please help STOP this cruel tactic of sending German Shepherd dogs to War in Afghanistan. Stand up for the German Shepherds and send a message to Rt Hon Des Browne MP, Secretary of State for Defence, UK, today.
I found the link in the UK publication Dogs Today, encouraging people to sign.

I don't see the point of this petition site - apart from the entertainment factor. And the default font/colour really ought to be green crayon.

Where exactly did they get the inspiration for this? If it's not being done or planned already, it's probably giving someone ideas now! Personally I think radio-controlled rats are a better bet. They've already managed brain-wired chips that can turn a rat left and right, and they're less noticeable...

"Cry HAVOC! and let loose the radio-controlled rats of war!"






Could be the new tagline for FIST, thinking about it...

Anyone else thinking that this is actually a pretty good idea (the dogs I mean, not the petition).

Shame they're not training them to go straight in and rip the Taliban apart, at the very least it would provide a good diversion. Bring back the war dogs.

My bold
a) the only automated robot I can think of is Metal Mickey - can't imagine him scaring any fcuker

b) shouldn't think Des Browne will give a toss about the poor little puppies now he's spending more time in his garden

Better off sending a rock, you are supposed to be para trained and up there with 'Them', strapping a video camera to you might be a problem though with all that shoite hanging off your cop vests as normal taking up all the room. Besides which the dog can take over from you on the gate at RAF whaterver with minimal training. It should be better at reading the id cards than the average rock as well. :wink:
 
#8
Is it a joke...? how bloody silly, a flippin great german shepard with a camera on its head for covert ops....er yeah coz that is inconspicuous isn't it???? And how will it pull its parachute....dogs don't have aposable thumbs? No no this is all wrong it would have to be a covert cocroach or something.

This is so wrong. Don't the Brass realise that dogs are considered offensive to the people of Islam? What next, pigs trained as frogmen? The PC police will have a field day with this!

I was also going to suggest a tactical tortoise but I thought that was going a bit far. :wink:
Edited to add: Then again this thread is about airborne alsatians?
