Dolphins are being trained for military action by the Ukraine navy in a return to Soviet-style underwater warfare, it emerged yesterday.

The marine mammals will be taught to attack enemy combat swimmers using special knives or pistols fixed to their heads, said a source in Sevastopol, a large port on the Black Sea.

They are also able to locate items of military interest and mark them by attaching buoys, or plant explosives in enemy territory.

I've heard of dolphins being trained like this before too, but I don't remember if it was with the Ukraine navy. As far as I'm aware this isn't an old news article, otherwise I wouldn't have posted it.

No, the article isn't old but the U.S. Navy was doing this type of training with dolphins during the Vietnam War.

Just leave the dolphins alone and keep your war-like ways to yourself! One day these people are gonna be training toddlers to fight wars as well.

We are seriously going to equip one of the most intelligent and human like animals on earth with weapons? Tool use is one of the ways we beat dolphins....So I guess its time to give them tools.

Seriously bro? I see a dolphin revolution in our future.

Dolphins are the most human like animals? I thought that would be the other great apes.

And if I'd want to give weapons to animals and use them for my benefits, I'd rather use the smarter ones, too. ;)

Now, this is what PETA should be protesting...

Try to realize it's all within yourself / No-one else can make you change / And to see you're really only very small / And life flows on within you and without you. / We were talking about the love that's gone so cold and the people / Who gain the world and lose their soul / They don't know they can't see are you one of them? / When you've seen beyond yourself then you may find peace of mind / Is waiting there / And the time will come / when you see we're all one and life flows on within you and without you. ~ George Harrison
