    Today, fort ord, a military base 2 miles from where I am right now, is doing a controlled burn on a 500 acer mine feild to help clear it up. Instead of just lighting it, they dropped a na-palm bomb on it! the entire place was in flames in seconds. There was no time for wildlife to get out, they didn't even contact the aspca in advance so they could get the animals out! the place is still burning, and what looks like clouds, very black ones, is in fact smoke. and right now it is snowing! ashes though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] I sure hope the wildlife got out, if they did I'm happy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    I guess the military doesn't really care about a few squirrels and the like. Napalm though? Are you sure? I would seriously doubt that the military uses that stuff to clear out a few trees. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    The napalm is used to explode the mines. And no the military does not care about a few squirrels/ rabbits/ birds/ people... whatever.. lol

    Ohhh! I missed the part about the mine field. I thought it was just a field of grass and trees, etc.

    Still...

    Lol, @ vftginjs, i dont truly think they care about animals, and if its a mine field, a deer or 2 is going to lose a leg anyways.

    It's kind of a good thing and bad thing they did that in my oppinion. The good is that all the mines blew up and future animals and such don't have to lose limbs and suffer due to the mines, the bad is that the animals died in the fire.

    As bad as I feel about the animals, but better 10 squirells than 1 little girl playing hide and seek with her brother in 10 years. I see stories all the time about 5-10 year old mine fields that some poor kid wanders through.

    Anything the military usually does is dumb ( & awful!) - but then that's just my li'l ol' opinion.
