Saw that golden lab writhing in agony on the news

  1. I am terrified and sickened and enraged. 1st reason is that these people would not hesitate to do this to humans, 2nd reason is that I love animals. I know my own goverment's leaders has developed and considered using such weapons. The only thing that redeems them in my eyes is that they hesitated to do so. The people that made this tape have absolutely no qualms whatsoever about destroying anything in the way of achieving their goals. They got to go, no ands, ifs or buts. If they aren't stopped none of us will be safe, not ever.

    I didn't see it, and I don't want to know. Silly and ostrich-like of me, I know, but I cannot STAND violence to animals.

    I don't think anything should be used or abused in any way, however, I am far more equipped to deal with violence against humans than against animals, particularly dogs... I just have a soft spot in my heart for them.

    Oramar, I know what you mean. Just horrendous. Saw it on Fox this morning.

    I haven't seen the tape, and if I can avoid it I will.

    But not only have they done this to that dog, they have tested these things on their own population. There are a lot of Kurds living in Tennessee right now who are refugees because what's-his-name was trying to kill them all off, and he used Sarin and some other nerve gases on them.

    Welcome to the parade of sorrow. I went to see it on the internet, but you have to pay to see news on the internet these days. Anyway, one place had a three frame .gif. first you see a cute little dog, then the dog jumps up, then the dog is still lying in the corner. The news can really make you coo-coo, which is the intent sometimes, IMHO.

    I think it is absolutely disgusting that they showed it on the tv news here. I turned on the news on my supper break and saw a cute little puppy, not knowing what was to come. I was so sickened by it!

    how they tested it on humans! they went to a public place and somehow exposed "one" man, then followed him home, and watched him die! :angryfire

    Here it is ten days later, and I guess you have seen or heard CNN accounts of how they got the pictures of the dog.

    The guy who poisoned the dog was paid $30,000 (thirty thousand dollars). I love animals and especially yellow dogs, but I'd poison one for half that and take pictures/videos.

    The CIA was asked ten days ago "How was CNN able to get all these photo's of all these atrocities and the CIA was empty handed?" The CIA spokesperson replied, "because they've got twice as many people over there as we do, and they've got more money than we do to pay for pictures and videos."

    Goree pictures, reprehensible acts of cruelty, animals and children........that's what sells the networks to the American public.

    I felt like I'd been duped by CNN after I read this account.

    yes it can........
    Mario, thx for letting me repeat.......it is definitely worth the quote ..........
    the media and the politicians will try to manipulate our minds any and everyway they can..........
    which is why i only buy a newspaper once a week and on purpose watch CNN once a week...........
    of course you cannot help but catch it the other times.......

    as is the truth isn't bad enough most days......then the media and the politicians go about playing their games..........

    micro crawls back under the sand.......and dreams of a Star Trek world........
