I have always backed the notion of having animals do our fighting for us. Not only are they bred to endure the harsh necessities of constant struggle for survival but they are inherently awesome. Can you imagine pitting a unit of heavily-armed marmosets against a rag-tag bunch of armored gibbons?
<groan-inducing pun> That’s what I’d call Gorilla warfare! </groan inducing pun>
The Danger Room has linked to a rundown of the history of the animal kingdom in human warfare. I mention it mostly because I think the image of a cat behind the scope of a sniper rifle is probably too awesome for words.
