IRAQ insurgents attached explosives to a dog today in a bid to bomb a military convoy near the northern oil centre of Kirkuk but the animal was the only casualty, police said.
The insurgents wrapped an explosive belt around the dog's body and detonated it as the convoy passed through Dakuk, 40km south of Kirkuk, the town's police chief Colonel Mohammed Barzaji said.
"The dog was torn apart by the explosion which caused neither injury among the soldiers nor any damage," said Barzaji, adding that the bomb had been detonated outside a Shiite mosque.

How would you like to be the poor sap that gets his leg humped by that dog?

Russians did the samething during WWII. Strap explosives to a dog and train it to run under a Tiger Tank. They had good reasons though.

There is a bigger question:
was the poor dog converted to Islam before it went on its mission? Was he promised 72 virgin female dogs (feel free to substitute for a non PC word) for the deed?

When US Navy uses Dolphins to put mines on ships everythings is ok.
When US Navy uses a new kind of sonar and destroys marine life with powerfull sonic emissions, then everything is ok.
I have a Dog at home and I Love all Animals - and I dont approve Any of their torture and miss-treatment.
But people have always and will always use animals for their goals and purposes.
deltaboy - I think that Tiger tank was pretty superior than the russin T-34; but not when russians have 10.000 tanks while germans did not.
