Armed with "Kalashnikovs, Bren machine-guns and trench mortars", the macaques and baboons are being taught to recognise and fire upon anyone wearing a US military uniform.

“A senior US military source confirmed the existence of the Taliban monkey soldiers, military experts call armed monkeys ‘monkey terrorists’,” it said.

You can't make this stuff up, if this was in a science fiction novel it would be laughed at as "too ludicrous".

Hmmm, might have some applications in Africa as well. Let's start a group "Donate an SKS - save the Gorillas".

Why not? We've trained dogs to sniff out stuff, and dolphins
to attach limpet mines to ships. Thought I saw something
about penguins,maybe?

Wonder if we tried it first?

You'd think they'd issue M-1 carbines, then.

I guess the Gillie person has been out of the loop too long to realise that the REAL chimp is in the Offal Orifice as we speak. Course it's terribly politically incorrect of me to call obongo a "chimp" much less a porch ape. But it was waaay OK to compare Dubya to an ape.

You are expecting too much from ggiilliiee if you expect him to be PC. Or even have anything intelligent to say. But he's good for a Dem vote or two.
