Military Dog & Bin Laden
May 6, 2011 by staff
Military Dog & Bin Laden, We’ve all been legitimately praise the troops of 79 Navy SEALs, who brought Osama bin Laden, but there is one very important that everyone has been ignoring: the U.S. military dog of war.
According to the New York Times, a dog was involved in the attack on the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan; fell in battle while strapped to the chest of one of the seals. But military dogs are nothing new, and apparently a dog helped capture Saddam Hussein as well.
Most likely this dog was a Belgian Malinois, although there are rumors that may also have been a German shepherd. All military dogs go through extensive training (like their human counterparts), where they are taught to use oxygen masks for high altitude parachutists, equipped with body armor that can withstand hot shrapnel rounds and tubes infrared during the night, and his teeth are replaced with titanium teeth so they can tear through the enemies of protective armor.
So essentially, this is a real life robot dog. Not only do these dogs can locate the bombs, but also they have been trained to sniff out the enemy troops up to 2 miles away.
“The ability to bring to the struggle can not be replicated by man or machine,” said Gen. David H. Petraeus, calling for the use of more dogs.
