Monkey Terrorists in Afghanistan

Monkey see monkey do? or Human do, then train monkey so less humans have to do? Chinese news source, Peoples Daily Online (人民 网) reads:

Afghanistan’s Taliban insurgents are training monkeys to use weapons to attack American troops, according to a recent report by a British-based media agency.

Reporters from the media agency spotted and took photos of a few “monkey soldiers” holding AK-47 rifles and Bren light machine guns in the Waziristan tribal region near the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. The report and photos have been widely spread by media agencies and Web sites across the world.

According to the report, American military experts call them “monkey terrorists.”

As a form of cruel political means, wars are launched to meet political goals through conquest, devastation, assaults and other means.

In a sense, the emergence of “monkey soldiers” is the result of asymmetrical warfare. The United States launched the war in Afghanistan using the world’s most advanced weapons such as highly-intelligent robots to detect bombs on roadsides and unmanned aerial vehicles to attack major Taliban targets. In response, the Taliban forces have tried any possible means and figured out a method to train monkeys as “replacement killers” against American troops.

Analysts believe that apart from using “monkey killers” to attack the American troops, the Taliban also sought to arouse Western animal protectionists to pressure their governments to withdraw troops from Afghanistan.

An American official responded that the Taliban forces have started training “monkey soldiers” after suffering heavy losses, implying that they have exhausted their tricks. Nevertheless, the Taliban believe that the emergence of “monkey soldiers” indicates that they have found smarter and more effective ways to cope with American troops.

Ironically, the initiators of “monkey soldiers” are the Americans. Between the 1960s and the 1970s, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) trained massive “monkey soldiers” in the Vietnam War and dispatched armed monkeys to dangerous jungles to launch assaults on Vietnamese soldiers. Today, the Taliban forces have given the American troops some of their own medicine.

When armed animals enter interpersonal wars, what kind of world will we face? This cannot but arouse our reflections and concerns.

    This is just plain wild and sick. It also makes me laugh histerically.

    The reality would be frightening, but the visual image of gun toting monkeys is so absurd and ironic.

    I guess the only way to take this seriously is to actually get shot by a monkey. Oh the humanity

    Freakin' hilarious……

    This sounds like a fake story planted by the British simply to associate the enemy with monkeys.
    I could understand trained monkeys rigged with remote controlled explosives… but machine guns??

    i would love to see a youtube video of monkeys being drilled on weapons maintenance,
    and malfunction procedures. the funny part will be when the Taliban realize we all look the same to them.
    it'll be like a episode of Lancelot link gone horribly wrong. or planet of the apes.

    A Monkey being taught to use an assault rifle? Considering how many Humans can't even do it properly, I just don't see it.

    What could possibly go wrong with teaching monkeys to use assault riles?

    Sounds like a solid plan to me.

    If this really happens im joining the army. I would employ some bananas dropped from the sky to distract the enemy. New meaning to air support.

    On my way to work this morning, I noticed several trained monkeys with machine guns. They were all wearing New York City Police Dept uniforms and performing stop and frisks on foreigner tourists. We love them here in New York City! In fact, I'd like to send a squad of them to shoot up the New York State Congress in Albany.
