Taliban takes high cover
Can’t smoke ’em out? Troops struggle with 10-foot Afghan marijuana plants


A soldier of the International Security Assistance Force walks past a marijuana field that Taliban militants reportedly used for cover Sept. 19 outside Panjwayi, Afghanistan in Kandahar province.

OTTAWA - Canadian troops fighting Taliban militants in Afghanistan have stumbled across an unexpected and potent enemy — almost impenetrable forests of 10-foot-tall marijuana plants.

Gen. Rick Hillier, chief of the Canadian defense staff, said 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 phosphorus — 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.'"

They should use that photo as a promotional ad to get people to join. If I saw that at 18 I'd be soooo in. They'd call me Private Pothead and I'd hoard jelly donuts like Pyle in Full Metal Jacket.

"you said I could drive the um humvee, cause like I never get to dr- whoa, that's a big fucking tank, man...who's coming in? WTF WAS THAT? Dude, are they shooting at me? Down? What? Dude? Give me the keys man, c'mon, JESUS CHRIST, Will you STFU and stop shooting at me?....oooh, donuts, bonus!"

I'm not saying Canada isn't a good place to visit, but the pot is in Afghanistan.
