Mystery Meat

Proverbs 12:10, “A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.”

One of the Germans contributions to the build-up of the Afghan Natioinal Security Forces (ANSF) is to train bomb-sniffing dogs, an invaluable asset as you can imagine.  The dogs are being trained in a northern area of Afghanistan known as Mazar-e-Sharif.  One dog was ready for deployment and was shipped to Kandahar.  The Germans thought it too dangerous in Kandahar to send a dog-handler, so they shipped the $12,000+ dog alone.

The dog arrived the same day without a scratch and ready for work.  In spite of the ample workload, the Afghans did not know how to employ the dog.  After a little deliberation, they decided grilling would be best way.  At over $100/pound, I hope the fries and drinks were free.

  1. One of our OPS officers and I came up with our retirement plan. We are going to train donkeys to sniff drugs and sell them to the Coalition for donation to the ANSF. Then the Afghans will know what to do with them when the workload is light. Our drug donkeys are going to make us millions!

  2. …and bomb sniffing cats. Drug Donkeys and Bomb Cats. Be the monkey!
