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.
