Taliban Recruit Monkey Terrorists

Oh, no. "Taliban trains 'monkey terrorists' to attack U.S. troops," writes the People's Daily from China (via FP):

Taliban forces have taught monkeys how to use the Kalashnikov, Bren light machine gun and trench mortars. They also teach them how to identify and attack soldiers wearing U.S. military uniforms. Ironically, the idea of training monkeys to fight was first invented by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.

Will NATO prevail against the monkeys? Is it April 1st in the Chinese calendar?

Pat Patterson on :

Brens? I suspect that the photo is of an Indian monkey as that is about the only place in the world that still makes that weapon. But beware our Chinese trolls may be back to argue that it must be true but he orginal idea was British.

Joe Noory on :

[i]"Ironically, the idea of training monkeys to fight was first invented by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA in the Vietnam War initiated a program that used the peanuts and bananas as prizes to train some "monkey soldiers" to kill Vietnamese in the jungle, according to a report by British media on June 27, 2010."[/i] Un hunh... Where do I get the feeling that all of these "facts" was sourced from a magazine, circa 1978, or a generic re-writing of "[url=http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article193024.ece]Stalin's Monkey Army[/url]" or some other version of a an CIA-attributed plot? One key to understanding this item's [i]bogosity[/i] is that the more serious the muslim, the more likely they are to find animals associated in any way with feralness or wildness to be dirty or a carrier of infection. There is virtually no respect or sympathy for stray cats and dogs in general in the middle east, and the same is likely the case in the non-arab muslim space as well.
