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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

actually given his military training, the dog is probably now the smartest 'being' in the Taliban... he should rise to a leadership position within a matter of weeks and eventually teach the rest of them how to read and write and eventually bring about a stable democracy in that shiathole within a year or so.

As a liberal type, and a friend of many liberal types, I can assure you our outrage is larger. The Russian desertions in World War Z comes to mind. Gather them up into groups of 10. Then each group must kill one of them.
 
2014-02-06 06:44:22 PM
US military sources say the dog belonged to a coalition partner and the BBC understands it was working for British forces.

The Taliban earlier released footage of what they claimed was a dog they captured from US troops.

It's a dog. It does what it's trained to do.

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.

I know plenty of dogs that work harder than me. That's why we've trained them over the past umpty-thousand years to do stuff for us.

I dunno, I kind of get your point that most Americans pay lip service to patriotism, while refusing to serve for their country; but we've bred dogs to do whatever we need them to.

This dog is closer to a slave than a patriot.

nb: I'm no PETArd or anything; my brother has spaniels for his gun dogs, I have a lurcher and my bro's missus has kennels of various collies and other working dogs. But anthropomorphising dogs is silly. They don't like it.

According to the video, the dog came across to their side after troops raided their base.

So yeah, not so much.

And I think if they wanted to torture it to get us angry they'd have done it already and showed the injuries in the video. That dog doesn't look hurt, just kind of confused. They'll probably just abandon it somewhere or shoot it quick when they're done showing it off.

define 'defeat'.

from what I can tell from dick and dubya's original plans... the objective was to 'spend a lot of money (mostly with Halliburton and or their affiliates), but don't take over the country or anything'... and given that as an objective I'd say 'Mission Accomplished'.
