Canada Troops Battle 10-foot Afghan Marijuana Plants
Cannabis plants prevent warfare - stand tall for peace, block tanks and guns

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

General Rick Hillier, chief of the Canadian defence 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'."

There's support for growing hemp if ever it was needed! Not only is it a medicine/cloth/fuel/food/fun it also masks heat signitures.

If you have to destroy hemp when fighting an enemy, you are on the wrong fuckin' side...

Thanks for that tidbit. I didn't know Canada had WMD's if that's what white phosphorous is classed as. In any case, my nation is prepared to use chemical weapons on civilian populations. :angry:

Yes its hard to reject our Canadian "Our troops are Doves" sort of programming we get, our Millitary is not much different from the US millitary when all is said and done.

Although from what I understand WP is "allowed" by the Geneva convention for non-urban battle feild use.

The thing that makes me laugh is that fact that the taliban government that was there almost eradicated opuim production in their country, lol. Sure they might have been oppressive, but what government isn't and the U.S. is no exception to that rule. As for the canadian military, alot of us don't support our role in afganistan. The last election we had here there were two choices, the devil you know and the devil you don't know. Unfortunitely, we chose the devil we didn't know and he's crawling up bushes ass like you wouldn't believe. But on the lighter side, If I was over there, I'd be shipping that stuff to my buddies back home in the biggest crates I could find, lol. Weed Forever, lol.

umm 36% of the Voters in our country chose the Neo-Conservative Party of Kana-duh, electing what is now called "the New Government of Canada" so we did not really "choose him" especially since he is a CFR/Bilderberg puppet in the fuckin' first place.
