    Yep...its an old trick.

    bullets that detonate when fired, mortar rockets that explode in the tube,RPG's that go bang when fired, and all sorts of neat little tricks that have been around since war began.

We leave this stuff somewhere for a traiterous iraqi soldier or policemen to steal to give to his al qaida buddies. We do this a lot and sooner or later they've destroyed a bunch of rifles and don't kow if their rifle is going to work when they need it to. Maybe we could leave RPG rounds laying about with a fuse set to detonate upon attempted launch.

    Whattdya think?
    What happens to the freindlies that get a hold of this ammo ? Bad idea.

    All snopes says was that they don't know if it happened or not. Not being able to prove it's true does not make it false. Just like not being able to prove something is false doesn't make it true. Either way, whether it happened or not, and whether it would stop 100% of them is not my point. If it will stop 10% that's good enough for me. Plus, I like the idea of these extremists rotting with the pigs.

    I know it's not possible, I take as more of a humerous story. If it was taken in to practice, it would probably just cause more attacks. If they buried our troops with animal corpses, we would be also be understandably upset, no matter what our religious leanings are.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I think some of this was going on (with the RPGs) earlier in the war, but it is forbidden. Lots of rules out there.....damn lawyers.

    Another trick was to "drop" a case of spiked grenades off of a truck.

    As for lawyers...they dont hange around where there is danger. I'd make em catch me in the act...

    I like the dipping of bullets in Pig Blood. Whether or not we do it the word that we have done it needs to be supplied to the rumor mill. I don't know that it will accomplish anything but would impress me that someone is doing something inovative to help our troops out. Maybe include a drop of pig blood in a hollow of each bullet or a cansiter of it in each grenade.

    OK, so it's not a new idea but I still think it's a good one. I'm always inventing stuff after someone else does first.

    If the friendly iraqis are swithing to M16s, I don't think we have friendlies using AK ammo over there (or RPGs).

    Do you really think no one has ever thought of this before?

    Turning over more explosives to the enemy is a bad idea. A vest or IED made of your doctored rounds would be really appreciated by the grunts on the ground.

    Of course, our Muslim allies would really appreciate our showing such cleverness as to add pigs' blood to our arsenal. As if it would have any effect at all other than to generate even more anti-U.S. sentiment.

    Then again, you might be giving our enemies the idea for an equally powerful weapon. I can hear 'em now: "Americans are all Christians. Christians can't eat meat on Friday. Let's bomb 'em with ground chuck . . . "

    Sadly, there are no magic bullets to end the war.

    I like the way your thinking.

    For me I would take a simpler approach.

    I’d advise our oil company’s to learn how to drill for oil in a radiation suit.

    Guess why?
