Hilarious. I wouldn’t want to be on patrol with those ANP jokers though.

I gotta hand it to Al Jazeera for getting these exclusives.

If I was one of the guys from the 82nd Airborne it would take all my restraint to not pull out my rifle and put a few rounds through that bong.

According to China’s People’s Daily Online, the Taliban have taught monkeys to recognize U.S. Military uniforms and shoot at the soldiers using AK-47s, Bren machine guns, and mortars.

Ugh, lets hope there are no splinter cells here at zoos in the United States. :P

On the plus side, i’m pretty confident a monkey wouldn’t have very advanced military tactics, and could easily be taken out with a .22 LR or enticed to stop shooting with some more food.

Thanks to this story, I will no longer associate monkeys and AKs with this cute picture.

The pictures are not as captivating as usual, but still worth looking at.

On Tuesday, the toll of American dead in Afghanistan passed 1,000, after a suicide bomb in Kabul killed at least five United States service members. Having taken nearly seven years to reach the first 500 dead, the war killed the second 500 in fewer than two.

I hope the Taliban death toll is in the 5 digit range.

To those that serve, thank you.

A few days ago I blogged about the British Army sniper that set a new kill distance record with an Accuracy International L115A3.

 

Well it looks like the British are breeding Universal soldier types, because today some more impressive shooting was in the UK news:

A British sniper shot dead five Taliban gunmen in just 28 seconds to save the lives of comrades walking into an ambush.

The marksman felled the rebels from more than a mile away as they prepared to attack troops on foot patrol in Afghanistan.

The corporal  –  whose identity cannot be revealed for security reasons  –  has killed a record 37 enemy fighters during a four-month tour of duty.

The phones at Accuracy International are likely ringing off the hook lately.

If I were British I’d  have done this in reaction to the article:
