OH oh...let me the first one to call BULLshiat

Ok, this is SICK! who the hell is he waging war against? the local peasents and farmers? This is only going to make the people of Iraq support Saddam becuase it makes Bush look like a sadistic baby killer.

theres no way a mouse would survive that.
 
2003-03-08 10:53:55 AM  
Not only is this utter bullshiat, its horribly translated and boring bullshiat! Who the fark keeps submitting these crap Pravda articles? At least label it as satire, though I think their crap is far too stupid to even be considered that.
 
2003-03-08 10:54:33 AM  
i'm not sure, Nighthawk_NS, but I doubt they do it one at a time. i figure that if they can parachute tanks in, they can figure out how to drop a crate of mice or two...
 
2003-03-08 10:55:00 AM  
Ok, I mean what I said above if this article is true or not.

These were no ordinry mice...there were Ranger mice
 
2003-03-08 10:57:04 AM  
Weight X resistence X length of fall= mice don't need parachutes. They just need very small helmets and a pillow tied to their bellies.
 
2003-03-08 10:57:10 AM  
As always, Pravda is completely devoid of any sources, proof, logic, or intelligence.
 
2003-03-08 10:57:14 AM  
Why mice? Rats would be more appropriate, or maybe secret squirrels?

Hep_Cat_Swing: "... it makes Bush look like a sadistic baby killer."

Article said this was happening for Eeght years ago. This would mean Clinton was the sadistic baby killer.

Anyone who doesn't know pravda is crap is an idiot. It's like the Russian Weekly World News.
 
2003-03-08 11:05:06 AM  
sorry "eight years ago"

damn

personally i think locusts would have been easier to use....

why would they use mice when the have genetic engineering for crops. the us has a way to destroy pot crops by sowing plants that crossbreed with the pot that makes it useless. so why wouldn't they do the same thing with food crops?

this article was just anti us propaganda.

The scary thing is that there are going to be people who believe this article, strap themselves with explosives, and jump on a baby stroller.
 
2003-03-08 11:11:15 AM  
Pravda's sometimes crap, although the translators make it much worse.
CNN's in Bush's pocket and is full of crap in that regards.


The truth is somewhere in the middle. Bush isn't an angel, Sadam isn't quite the devil (yet)- don't by hypocritical about how America is innocent in every regard.

"...The hardest part in the Ranger Mouse training was teaching them to pull the rip cords after exiting the airplane...."
 
2003-03-08 11:15:59 AM  
and in other news, the US sends Spec Ops into Iraq to taunt children and pull the wings off butterflies.

For what it's worth, I read about this yesterday at the always entertaining Rense.com:

since the source is some russian retard, credibility is questionable. but the idea is very clever indeed.

"i figure that if they can parachute tanks in, they can figure out how to drop a crate of mice or two..."

They can't parachute tanks in. Try studying physics instead of weekly world news.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA..... HAHA....

Man, it's too early for this... good stuff.
 
2003-03-08 11:18:59 AM  
How do the know when to pull the rip cord.
 
2003-03-08 11:23:00 AM  
getting back to my idea from the last pravda link... can we PLEASE have these pravda articles automatically labeled stupid?
 
2003-03-08 11:23:20 AM  
Thats easy Naked_man, just tie a piece of cheese to the rip cord.....
 
2003-03-08 11:24:01 AM  
lets say you could para drop mice oh I got it, I was gonna say how do the mouse drop it's parachut, but it's being dropped in a big box that holds like 10000 mouse and when it hits the ground the box breaks open and mouse escape and look for food, I guess it could work but I dont' beleive it, the only thing us is dropping is bombs and food
 
2003-03-08 11:24:04 AM  
Someone told me that US soldiers in Vietnam used to drop small monkeys with little parachutes just for fun.

But the monkeys would grab ahold of the shroud lines and get tangled up causing the parachute to collapse and then the monkeys would fall to their deaths. They soon devised a solution to that problem by tying the monkeys hands together. So at least the monkey would survive the parachute ride.....
 
2003-03-08 11:24:59 AM  
mrneutron that is fun
 
2003-03-08 11:29:45 AM  
...But they all died when they tried to eat Sadam's stockpile of nerve gas.
 
2003-03-08 11:36:02 AM  
Old news. US dropped live rats in Vietnam to spread disease. Same thing 4000 years ago, ancient wars flung feces and dead animals at each other to spread disease. Nothing new here, move along.
 
2003-03-08 11:36:58 AM  
they do parachute artillery pieces but i dont know about tanks.
 
2003-03-08 11:37:07 AM  
The truth is somewhere in the middle. Bush isn't an angel, Sadam isn't quite the devil (yet)- don't by hypocritical about how America is innocent in every regard.

Oh sure, killing and torturing people for no good reason other than supposedly telling a joke about you is a-OK! Man, you're right! That Saddam guy isn't half bad!

Farkers are becoming increasinly st00pid.
 
2003-03-08 11:39:06 AM  
I always had a theory of dropping inmates from death row onto buildings and such instead of bombs. Sure they wont do much physical damage to the buildings, but the psychological damage to the people of the city with hundreds of bodies splattering all over the streets would be enough to make them think twice about fighting us. And it would free up lots of prison space to fill for later droppings. Why do I see lots of farkers shaking thier heads saying "This guys an idiot"?
 
2003-03-08 11:43:09 AM  
lmao! oooops, i forgot the obligatory

/sarcasm

that belongs after anything i have to say about Pravda. my apologies
 
2003-03-08 11:44:47 AM  
Yeah, we only drop rats onto their fields so that we can send in huge amounts of aid in the form of food and medicine?

I think this is just a crappy farmer blaming the US because his crops keep getting eaten by native Iraqi mice.
 
2003-03-08 11:48:49 AM  
Pravda- Russian word meaning "bullshiat"

Communism might be dead, but you would never notice from reading that worthless piece of drivel.
