Dogs of war: The four-legged army recruits

5 posts in this topic

Boisterous, mischievous and reluctant to heed their commanders, these young cadets hardly resemble a crack military unit.

One chases rubber balls. Another plays tug-of-war with old rope. A third yelps excitedly.

But next year they will be among an elite Army team sniffing out roadside bombs in Afghanistan.

They are the latest eight recruits on the Ministry of Defence's new Young Military Working Dogs (YMWD) scheme - dubbed the 'Puppy Programme'.

Should have said "shouldn't". I hate the way we can't edit after a certain amount of time. Why is that?

I guess in the eyes of the military, animals are more expendable than people. If one dies then they simply get another and there is no family to answer to if a dog gets blown to bits plus they probably don't suspect that they're going to die at any moment and moreover it is expected that they get targeted.

Plus they'll probably get more brutally broken than the humans.

Makes me sick....

Bombs aren't just in wars. Terroists plant them everywhere. Just happened in Boston at the marathon.
