Sad, but it would take a dog to piss some off.
Acid in a woman's face? Not so much.

Americans are FAR more outraged by claims that the mayor of Sochi is rounding up and shooting stray dogs than they are about the imprisoned gay people.

It may be time to start pulling B-52s out of desert storage.

It's just a British dog though, so meh.

Great, those simple minded drones are gonna bar b que him up.

Not a dog...a military dog...it knows its duty and it'll go down pissing on those camel jockeys.

The rest of you fancy lads can go back to your Mountain Dews and ergonomic keyboards and your Bruno Mars songs and maybe, just maybe, when you take a knee tonight, you can throw a little prayer up for a dog willing to do more than you ever did for your country.

Hello?  It's a farking dog. It's expendable.

Chopper, sic balls.

Actually, send a bunch of choppers. And some drones.

There's a dog handler out there somewhere with pure hate and black blood flowing in his heart.  If he has to cut through 50 of them with a dull knife to get that dog back, he will.

2014-02-06 01:08:12 PM  
dammit, this woud have been funny before Torchsong's post, but now it might seem disrespectful, but here goes:

That dog knows his duty and he will NOT give them anything but his name rank and serial number.
 
2014-02-06 01:08:32 PM  
Good thing they didn't abduct a reasonably half-assed health care reform.
 
2014-02-06 01:09:12 PM  
Here's the deal. The dog didn't walk by an enlistment office, wiegh the dangers and decide to join up. He was thrown on a plane and told to obey the alpha with the leash.

He had no choice in any of this but is suffering the consequences. So yeah, I feel bad for dog.
 
2014-02-06 01:09:51 PM  
The dog is actually a brilliantly disguised British operative. Those guys are good.

*the* dog.

I was trying to make a serious point but now it sounds like a retarded meme.

Well yeah.  It's not like the dog  chose to be a dog.  It just is.

2014-02-06 01:14:43 PM  
TFA says dog was wearing GPS device, so how did they lose the dog in the first place?
 
2014-02-06 01:16:56 PM  
Well....

It is a dog.... But a "coalition dog." It deserves better than to be in the possession of Taliban ragheads.....

Since it has a GPS locator? One well placed cruise missile.......

Walker: You didn't read the article at all did you subby?


I don't think the person writing the article did too much research either, kind of a slap-it-together thing. Maybe I'm mistaking but isn't that a belgian malinois...and don't they make up the bulk of military dogs? No issue with the mention of the other breeds but, and I'm sure I'm just being too picky, if your going to mention breed types why not list the subject type?

I hope Colonel is farting like mad and pissing on their food as often as possible. I'll support any effort if they decide to send in a detachment of handlers to get their warrior back.
 
2014-02-06 01:18:36 PM  
Poor dog, seeing how those mediaeval f*ckwits treat women what chyance they know jack about animals.

What I want to know is where the hell was Dog Fort through all this??

Dog Fort?

Come in Dog Fort?
 
2014-02-06 01:21:52 PM  
Story said it had a GPS tracking device in it. Taliban aren't too smart, are they?

vudukungfu: Sad, but it would take a dog to piss some off.

God, I hate people who do what you just did. Most people are pissed off about both. There is a human tendency to feel a different kind of sympathy for animals because they can't speak, among other reasons, including because they serve us loyally with little regard to their own well-being. Acknowledging that in no way dimishes how we feel about what these scum do to women and other people.

What you did reminds me of the maudlin facebook posts that say things like "everyone's upset an actor dies but no one cares aboud the soldiers." Maybe it made you feel good, in which case you are easy and cheap, but it didn't add anything to the conversation and only showed you to be going through life with blinders on, unaware of the many positive human activities that might disappointingly mitigate the righteous indignation you hold so dear.

They deactivate part of the brain when they join in favour of letting Allah sort it out.

maybe it's a 'trojan' dog... and Lancelot, Galahad and I will wait until the Taliban bring him into their cave and then leap out, surprising them...
 
2014-02-06 01:49:47 PM  
The dog's name is "Colonel"? I would have guessed it was "Havoc".
 
2014-02-06 01:54:43 PM  
Now I feel bad about kicking my dog off the bed just before reading this.

But she's a 75 lb bed hog and a restless sleeper to boot!

Dammit... c'mon girl... up-up....

/she knows I love her. She got bacon this morning.
//hope they get Colonel back and feed him a whole pig.

"We will trade you 35, no, 50 Taliban prisoners for this dog."
 
2014-02-06 01:58:44 PM  
Plus, the article said that the dog had a mournful expression on his face. Now the story is even sadder. Perhaps the Puppy Doe people will rally to this cause.
 
2014-02-06 02:00:10 PM  
Funny, I thought the more conservative types over there regarded dogs as filthy animals. I guess they've figured out that westerners don't, and are trying to use this to their advantage.
 
2014-02-06 02:01:14 PM  
I'd say its time for a new glass parking lot.
 
2014-02-06 02:01:37 PM  
Well, I suppose they need to take your successes (however small they may be) and publicize the heck out of them, right?

I forget, what are the Taliban fighting for?  Foreigners out, women back in the kitchen and nobody allowed to do anything fun, ever.
I don't understand how they manage to keep the support of the inhabitants...maybe by pointing guns at them?

// Afghanistan...what a lovely place
// I feel bad for the dog, though.
 
2014-02-06 02:06:33 PM  
No longer will Mitties across England prop up bars telling all who listen how they were the second man through the Tehran embassy window. Now they can let poor idjits fawn over all the bayonettings they did to get Ol' Colonel out of there.

Sempfur Fi.

Storage?  The 11th, 20th and 39th bomb squadrons at Barksdale AFB are ready and willing to go right now!

Bomb them with those damn Sarah McLachlan commercials.
