Banana Akbar!

I was going to go on a bit about the self-esteem being the main thing taught today in schools, but then I was reading Facebook, and found this instead...another ADD moment!

Taliban training MONKEYS for jihad

The Taliban in Afghanistan is evidently tired, and want to sleep in, or do something else like rape little boys (google 'dancing boys of Afghanistan atlas shrugs' and check out the news story + read comments)

Anyway, back to jihad monkeys - the official newspaper of the Communist regime in China, they have this news story, about that.

They quote an unnamed British news agency as the source, and

"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."

I'd say this is something straight out of Weekly World News, the National Enquirer (although they were correct in the baby scandal of John Edwards), or the Sun. You know, one of those varied tabloids seen at grocery store checkouts. My vote is for the one featuring Bat Boy.

"An American official responded that the Taliban forces have started training "monkey soldiers" after suffering heavy losses, implying that they have exhausted their tricks."

From what I've seen from the news, the losses go one way then the other. And the Taliban is being supported by around 75% of the Afghan people.

Further on in this story, is this golden nugget:

"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."

Really? Monkey soldiers used by Americans...Must be more of the super-secret-squirrel super duper black ops. Emphasis on squirrel.

According to the article, the monkey soldiers are supposed to rouse PETA, to start lobbying for us to get out of there & leave Afghanistan alone.

Which is kind of funny, as PETA said nothing when Palestinians used a donkey to carry explosives and be exploded as a suicide bomber in Israel a while ago. I even went to the PETA website, and clicked on "contact PETA" and reported cruelty to animals... figured at least THAT is a valid cruelty thing. Of course PETA does nothing, says nothing.

Check out the full article about monkey soldiers here.

Another goofy thing - remember when "glue traps" were the "animal-friendly" way of trapping mice, the 'nice non-lethal way'? Evidently they are now "evil" and you should just let the mice have free run of your house! "glue traps are now some of the cruelest products on the market". Geeze like you really want a squeaking mouse in your house, either stuck on the glue trap, (before you rap its pate firmly with a hammer) instead of the nice quick death regular old mousetrap baited with peanut butter (make sure you keep those baited traps out of places your cat or dog can get to tho!) PETA makes no sense, and I think most people can agree, that animal cruelty is to be avoided, and not something one aims for, but they take it to the level of ridiculousness.

This ADD minute is coming to a close, going to go start typing out my post for tomorrow, about the 'self-esteem' that is taking over this country.


  1. Diane:
    That's some WEIRD sh*t about the "Monkey Division".
    (wasn't that a line of army toys for boys in the 1960s?)

    An A.D.D. minute?
    NAH...we're living in an A.D.D. world, kiddo!
    You're right in step there.

    As for the mice...well, if I find any, I'm going to "persuade" them to become "Garden Militia" (along with the gnomes I have who are armed)...LOL.

    This made my morning...thanks!

  2. I thought it pretty funny - what I was going to post about completely left me - and this took over :)).. I remember when glue traps were presented as the "nice alternative" to snap they're eeeeevil... go figure.

    Maybe get some of those Planet of the Ape action figures and give them AK47s and Brens and just have a ball..
