"Marines have used donkeys since the American revolution," he said, as each animal was being spray painted with a number for identification.

I'm not buying that for a minute. They are clearly painting numbers on them so they can race them!

Great headline.

2005 is year of the headlines or something, there have been more good headlines this year than any other year.

/yeah, that's a challenge
 
2005-08-14 05:02:54 PM
Hey, whatever works. It's not a bad idea. Now they need to strap some armor plating onto the donkeys and mount machine guns on the back!

And great headline, btw.

Forget the donkeys, I'd get some of this.

2005-08-14 05:05:23 PM
That headline is the win.

My favorite part of the article ""With all the smart bombs and the modern stuff in war nowadays, this is the best way for us to resupply our troops there," said Lt. Col. Jim Donnellan, commander of 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, which is based in Hawaii. "It's also much cheaper for the U.S. taxpayer for us to rent the donkeys than for everything to be air-dropped."

Someone in military command looking out for the taxpayer? I'm shocked - shocked I say. Of course, he'll probably get sent to Alaska for doing something sensible.

Unfortunately, the donkeys will most likely have a better meal then the Marines. The donkies' food (i.e. delicious vegitation) is all around them. Then again...they are Marines...

eyefarkno Of course, he'll probably get sent to Alaska for doing something sensible. And then back out in the desert. Interesting thing: There's a unit from Alaska arriving out here (Iraq) right now.

(relating to _'s picture) its crazy that that girl was only 12 in that picture. They have that photo on exhibit here in san diego at the Museum of Photographic Art, it has some pretty good photos from other places in the region too.

2005-08-14 05:45:22 PM
And I give you a GIS result for "sweet Afghani ass"

sweet Afghani ass

Apparantly you don't get sweet Afghani ass in Afghanistan...
 
2005-08-14 05:47:06 PM
A blasted, war-torn land; a donkey, and a brick of hashish.
Lead me away, Kind Spirit. Take me to your burkha.
 
2005-08-14 05:54:18 PM
I liked the part about the marines getting upset because the donkey's were trying to mate all the time.

Stooped donkeys
 
2005-08-14 05:56:28 PM
"When one Marine slapped one of the animals on the rump in exasperation, the donkey promptly gave him a sharp kick with one of its hind legs."

Apparently, Afghani ass can kick you if not treated well.
 
2005-08-14 05:56:34 PM
"Afghani" is the currency, not the national adjective.

"Afghan" is both the noun for someone from Afghanistan and the adjective.
 
2005-08-14 06:00:54 PM
You know Jeff..your post would have been useful a few seconds ago.Haha
oh, and a question, did anyone read the headline as, American troops trading vehicles for Afghan prostitutes?
 
2005-08-14 06:05:10 PM
Next I will hear our troops were caught in a donkey chain.
 
2005-08-14 06:06:13 PM
DDD: Yup, I confess that's what I first thought. Sneaky headline, submitter. Sneaky but good.
 
2005-08-14 06:08:26 PM
That girl doesn't look like she's aged well.......

 
2005-08-14 06:11:56 PM
_: She will destroy you with her laser beam eyes.


Hmm, yeah...

 
2005-08-14 06:15:14 PM
God dammit that girl was hot. Her teeth were probably rugged, though, and her knees could put an eye out . . .
 
2005-08-14 06:19:43 PM
triphammer: God dammit that girl was hot


She was also 12.
 
2005-08-14 06:22:00 PM
The Green Berets have been using horses and mules since Afghanistan. Must be slow news at that site or the Marine's PR department is working like a machine again.
 
2005-08-14 06:36:48 PM
I guess the Marines will also want their 40 acres.

Doesn't that green eyed chick live off of sticks and dirt clods?

apparently if you GIS for Sweet Afghani you get a page full of marijuana pics Sweet Afghani

Yeah, but you also get this:



Dunno if she's Afghani, but she's definitely sweet.

A friend of mine told me about a mountain tour donkey ride she went on in Greece. The donkey in front of her had explosive diarrhea the whole way. A dream come true for any tourist! So when anybody mentions donkeys now, that's the visual I get.
 
2005-08-14 06:59:46 PM
Does anyone have that pic that was floating around in October 2001 that showed an M1 Abrams vs. the Afghan Battle Donkey? That was hilarious, and like many things, it flew into my life one brief instant never to be seen again.

serutan: The donkey in front of her had explosive diarrhea the whole way.

That's just silly. Was no one smart enough to put the runny donkey at the end of the line?

I sure could use some Sweet Afghani!

If by "sweet" you mean "skeletal", then I'm right with you.

Best. Headline. EVAR.
 
2005-08-14 09:27:25 PM
Theres a reason the Afghani Muhajadeen have been using horses and donkeys for so long. They are about the only thing that can operate in the mountains, as most helecopters won't fly that high and the ones that do like the chinooks are really easy targets. I talk to veterans quite a bit and they can tell you plenty of tales of how easy it is for rpgs to shoot them down. Planes can only go in certain places, need large landing strips where many don't exist and make easy targets too. Its adopting old tactics for special forces that we been using for centuries and saw alot of use in WW2, and other conflicts where vehicles can't go.

See, the Republican party really does stand for fiscal responsibility! Mules instead of helicopters.

They've been doing that with camels for years.

 
2005-08-15 12:00:04 AM
OK folks: donkeys are donkeys, mules are the offspring of a male donkey and female horse, ie, they are NOT the same critter. Donkeys -- as they will tell you -- are infinitely superior to both mules and horses. And humans for that matter....
 
2005-08-15 01:51:04 AM
Still, the donkeys' stubbornness to cooperate and their determination to try to mate with each other whenever they were untied persistently frustrated their handlers.


you havent seen anything until you've seen a donkey that is determined to mate.

Before coming to Afghanistan, some of the troops received training in handling donkeys at the Marines' Mountain Warfare Training Center in Bridgeport, Nevada, said Capt. John Moshane.

Hate to point this out, but the Mountain Warfare Training Center is in Bridgeport, California. There is NO Bridgeport in Nevada. Looks like Capt. John Moshane needs a geography lesson.

No wonder the US military can't find Osama, they don't even know where they train in their own country.

Army used mules in Italy in WW II. Sometimes it really IS about cost-effectiness.
