Sad Colonel, the Dog-of-War Captured by Taliban Thursday, February 6, 2014
By: Cathy Burke
A video featuring a forlorn war-equipped dog, captured by the Taliban, is provoking uproar online.
In the footage, gunmen show off weapons while the subdued dog, wearing a vest with a GPS device, small camera and other equipment is being held by a chain, the Telegraph reported.
The capture of the dog, identified as a Belgian Malinois named Colonel, is believed to be the first by the Taliban of a military working dog.
The video was put up on the website of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and publicized by a series of tweets boasting of a Dec. 23 operation in which "6 US terrorists" were killed and "equip seized."

"We can confirm that a military working dog went missing following an ISAF mission in December, 2013," the U.S.-led International Assistance Security Force said in a statement.

Taliban just really pi$$ed a lot of guys!
There will be more outrage about the dog than there is about Bergdahl, who has been abandoned by the government.
Get on with the surrender ceremony.
The thugs are seen displaying U.S. made military grenades and rifles captured.
“Early reports had suggested the dog, called Colonel, was from the US but sources in Washington have denied this.
” The dog was taken during an operation on December 23 last year east of Kabul.
Captain Richard Holloway, 29, was killed during the mission. He was from the Royal Engineers Regiment but served with the SAS.
Capt Holloway has been described by his commanding officer as a “natural leader”, whose “tactical ability commanded wide respect”.
He added: “His judgement was un-erring, his enthusiasm was infectious and his standards never dropped.”
theyll try to turn it into a Suicide Dog
Built-in GPS by chance? To find the dog or,....who has it?
One of the many reasons I hate Muslim pigs so much is their attitude toward dogs.
If that were my service dog, I would do everything I could to get him back from those %^&%&%^& pigs and then kill as many of the bastards I could get in my sights.
The dog is just doing what he was trained to do. I hope they rescue him.
The doomed dogs of war: What happens to military dogs when they are no longer needed?

OLD habits die hard for Treo, a retired army dog who saved the lives of countless squaddies in Afghanistan by sniffing out hidden roadside bombs.
My first thought as well if it’s not disabled they know where to go
Not mooselimbs. They’ll all take a turn then behead and eat the sad looking pooch. It appears he’s aware of his fate.
My feelings exactly. It's sport to torture dogs in many Muslim countries. There is a photo making the rounds this week (I won't post a link to it here--I saw it by accident and wish I hadn't) of a Muslim grinning and holding up a cross on which someone had crucified a small dog. You know everything you need to know about a culture by the way it treats animals, especially dogs.
I had to travel to Malaysia on business and was sitting on the balcony of my hotel at 5:00am (jet lag) when the call to Muslim prayers was broadcast across the city. The only response I could hear in the quietness was the howling of dogs all over the city.
I just laughed.
They are really fond of that method of execution, aren’t they?
I wish they all had one neck. It would be better to slit all their collective throats.
Sadistic bastards who torture animals and rape little girls should all die.
Remember that Moose Limbs sodomize animals to exert dominance. Not just an urban legend, its the truth.
The REAL dogs had their butts in the air and their faces toward Mecca.
I went to Israel in 1990 (landed there the day that Iraq invaded Kuwait). My brother lives there, and the next day we got up at about 4:00 in the morning to travel from Jerusalem to Masada, which we were planning to (and did) climb. Before we left, my brother said, "You have to see something very funny." So we went to his roof. His section of town is on the summit of a hill. On the other 2 hills surrounding a common valley, there are Moslem villages. He looked at his watch and said that in 2 minutes there would be the Moslem call to prayer in the first village, and that within 3 seconds of it starting, the dogs there, in the other village and his area would all start barking. That, in turn, would wake the babies in all 3 places, followed by parents waking up and turning on the lights. Sure enough, this is exactly what happened, like clockwork. We laughed our asses off about it.
I asked him why everyone put up with this crap every single day - after all, how can anyone be in a good mood and function if they end up getting woken up every day at 4 A.M. He told me that there are times when some Israelis take things into their own hands - like, for instance, the time when he was in the IDF, and a few of them climbed up the tower with the timer-armed tape recorder that actually sounded the call to prayer. You can see where this is going...they switched the tape for some heavy metal band and, suffice it to say, the Arabs were a bit less than pleased. Oh, and the next morning a bunch of them came out to actually do the call to prayer the old fashioned way - which was the point: if you're going to annoy everyone by making noise at O Dark Thirty, you're damned well going to get your own carcass out of bed to do it.
That poor dog is a goner (if not gone already). My only hope is that he goes (or went) quickly and relatively painlessly. Probably not, though, as the Arab Moslems are particularly contemptuous of dogs, and make it a virtue to be cruel to animals. This one thing, if there was nothing else that they did which is abhorent, would be enough for me to condemn their society. After all, how you treat the least among you reveals your true character.
U.S. ARMY SPYS CATCH AFGAN TALIBAN GANG BANGING A GOAT
are you kidding me? OMG
It gets lonely over there for the throat cutters I guess. :)
May be up for the "animal" version of the VC.
The only stories I saw had already said the dog was from British forces
I couldn’t agree with you more!
