No wonder Germany lost WWII. The Nazi bigwigs really believed dogs could be trained to think like humans and actually speak. I was thinking about putting this is the History subforum, but I think GD is more appropriate.

Wow, and my dogs only sing the flea and tick commercial, they hear on TV. Perhaps I am feeding them the wrong kibble?

Well, I don't think USA is much better. According to Evo, the CIA tied cats to bombs whenever they bombed ships. The reasoning was that the cats didn't like water and would therefore lead the bombs to a ship... :biggrin:

And then I'm not talking about "Operation wired kitty"...

I think it was borek that found the links for these projects after I posted about them.

Here's the list I used, scroll down to #9 cat bombs. Someone found the actual project name for the cat bomb project before it was scrapped.

Your defense dollars at work. However, as idiotic as most of these are, they don't presuppose anything like dogs being able to speak or think like a human. The idea was that dogs could perform human tasks and be a substitute for manpower.

Actually the Russian idea of training dogs with explosives to park themselves under enemy tanks is quite rational, if cruel. However, I wonder if any Russian tanks got blown up by their own dogs. Did they train their dogs to recognize that big red star?
