    Dude, they're like, the Taliban.

    Now I know why the war on terror is taking so damn long:

    Troops Battle Ten-Foot Tall Marijuana Plants

    OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian troops fighting Taliban militants in
    Afghanistan have stumbled across an unexpected and potent enemy -- almost impenetrable forests of 10-feet-high marijuana plants.


    General Rick Hillier, chief of the Canadian defense staff, said on Thursday that Taliban fighters were using the forests as cover. In response, the crew of at least one armored car had camouflaged their vehicle with marijuana.

    "The challenge is that marijuana plants absorb energy, heat very readily. It's very difficult to penetrate with thermal devices ... and as a result you really have to be careful that the Taliban don't dodge in and out of those marijuana forests," he said in a speech in Ottawa.

    "We tried burning them with white phosphorous -- it didn't work. We tried burning them with diesel -- it didn't work. The plants are so full of water right now ... that we simply couldn't burn them," he said.

    Even successful incineration had its drawbacks.

    "A couple of brown plants on the edges of some of those (forests) did catch on fire. But a section of soldiers that was downwind from that had some ill effects and decided that was probably not the right course of action," Hillier said dryly.

    One soldier told him later: "Sir, three years ago before I joined the army, I never thought I'd say 'That damn marijuana'."

    Only a truly heinous genius like Osama could have thought of an infernal weapon like that!

    We'll need to send KenX over there right away.

    Anywho, what in the world gave them the idea to burn the fields down? Don't they know that people smoke Mary-Jane for a reason?

    Re: Dude, they're like, the Taliban.

    Thats pretty funny, although you shouldn't laugh at this too hard, Canadian soldiers in Afganistan are 6 times more likely to die in combat then an American soldier in Iraq.

    I know several members of the 2PPCLI who currently stationed in the country, and I knew several soldiers who have died Personally (Cpl. Francisco Gomez (Close family friend, went through Bootcamp with my dad, and was a member of my Dad's Signal Sqn.), Cpl. Paul Davis (I babysat his two little girls), Pte. Richard Green (Went to high school with his younger sister))
