So has anyone else heard of this going on in the middle east? Here's a snippet from the article.

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."

Wow never thought I would here this Monkey terrorists.

It is not hard to train monkey to press a trigger. But how monkey could be trained to aim - i do not know. Or work as a squad. Or change a magazine. Or deal with jammed weapon. Good way to waste weapons and ammunition though.
"Planet of the apes" still is too far.

Not only that how would you stop it from turning on you. A monkey rolling around with an AK47 is dangerous.

They probably have more brains than the generals and politicians.

This ranks right up there with boobie bombs, and underwear bombs.
Though prolly not quite so dangerous as predator drones.

Well the US is one step ahead of them. The US is deploying 46 warships and 7000 marines to Costa Rica to cut off there banana supplies.

Banana strike
10.12AM Sat Jul 10 2010
Striking banana plantation workers and police have clashed in western Panama, leaving one man dead and 100 people hurt.

Eighteen of the injured in Bocas del Toro province, on the border with Costa Rica, were in critical condition, the national emergency agency said in a statement.

Well the US navy uses dolphins or did, I guess there are no more fish to lure them in and coax them ( poisoned in the oil soaked gulf ) so now they are going after the bananas to get the monkeys...the bananas are full of DDT...

Gee, the US pays well. It's the pay that causes gulf war syndrom...go figure.

I found a picture of one of the monkey soldiers being detained.

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.

Any validity to this statement?

First its this almighty, feared and invincible force of almost mythical Taliban fighters. They annihilated almost endless armies of invincible nuclear Soviet Russia and posses the uncanny ability to quickly regenerate and repel subsequent attacks from World® aka the United States.

Then its some international terrorist secret religious extremist sect bent on raping our wives, killing our golden retrievers and blowing up major cities across the World® all at the same time. Undoubtedly ruled by Mojo Jojo who plots world domination in his secret lab.

And then, then, there's this "Axis of Evil", an entire group of super-villains and their mighty armies with only one thing in there evil minds: spreading evil and harassing innocent people, because if they can't have a golden retriever no one should.

This has gone beyond control to such extent that even trained armies of AK-47-wielding extremist monkeys don't seem so implausible any more. These super-villains are now plotting a skim where they'll train evil monkeys to aid them in their conquest of corruption.

I once thought "only in America" but this plague of extreme gullibility has no preference in which place, nation, or continent it will spread its false wisdom. Many of us wake up from this nightmare with a loud "whaaaaaaaaaat?" scream only to realize they're still dreaming and that there's no easy way out.

how else do people combat against predator drones? They need to fight fire with fire, by using drones instead of people. The next best thing to a robot (which they can't afford or build) is monkeys.
