>>>A spokesman says it was done in a controlled environment with the pigs anesthetized the entire time. There was no word how many were shot.<<<

Unfortunately, U. S. Representatives and Senators weren't available for shooting, however they did empathize with the pork. Some may have actually called for a through investigation, citing that "shooting pigs" was against their family values.

Several were criticizing the current Administration for failing to have adequate Porcine Policies in place. A few even identified themselves with the victims and admitted that deep down, they too were "pigs" at heart.

Sad commentary on the continued inurement of troops and a misguided public who live life through the scope of their electronic games. Anything you annihilate to score will be back the next time you plug in. Living beings mean nothing whether dark skinned humans or animals or bugs. And we wonder why we're nothing without prozac.

Soldiers participating in this barbaric act are psychotic and so are the Government leaders who order these irresponsible drills.

Disgusting how this administration has made serving public office and military duty a disgrace.

Lie? sure
Cheat? Why not?
Murder? A-ok
Torture? Yes please
Abuse animals? Mmmmmmmmmm

To think the world used to look up to us.

Live tissue training? WTF?

In basic psychology, animal torture and cruelty is a direct link to psychopathlogy. Psychopaths.

Great. Guuurah! Aint we tuff soldiers. We can kill for tissue training innocent creatures. or?

Do they plan on invading Al Swineladen next?

Abscerd. Ludicris. INsane. What goes through the mind of a trainee that they have to circumvent thier conscience, and enjoy pulling the trigger on an innocent animal? Soft tissue hell. This is PSYCHOPATH training.

Just had porkchops for dinner. Tomorrow it will be a big ham. Next day P.B.J. on 15 grain bread.

Pork the other white meat.

BTW, Most Dr.s in training use pig portions to learn to suture. Psychopathic Doctors are looking to suture you....

I have a better idea, let's use peta wackos for training. I have been told they are somewhat humanoid in physiology although mentally they are amoebic. Only we shouldn't waste precious anesthesia on them. Just shoot the bastards sew them up for training purposes and dump their worthless hides in a grinder and make dog food and fertilizer out of them.

Let one of these wackos be hauled off to an ER after a car accident and they will whine about needing the BEST of care. Where in the hell do they think the trauma advances have come from? Sure, let's save some pigs who are destined for the BarBQ grill anyway and let our soldiers die. That makes so much sense. peta people are the dumbest bastards on the face of the earth. Nothing but a bunch of liberal idiots.

So let's see

We are using live pigs to learn how to treat and provide first aid for gunshot wounds?

Peta says "use human simulators" How much do they cost?$$$$$$$$$

America complains about the defense spending.

Meanwhile dogfights, cockfights, puppy mills, animal hoarders, abusers, neglectors, illegal exotic collectors all continue unabated. And where is peta? fu*kin with the troops. Not where they could be making a bigger and more effective difference.

If PETA were truely interested in saving animals
they should be donating their time and efforts at local ASPCA offices nationwide. Not providing lip service.
Actions speak louder than words.

Folks there are other places and other things you could do to make a more profound difference for animals. I don't condone animal cruelty, but if it helps save human lives at a lower cost than so be it.

Mad Dog USN, there is no reason to use animals to learn how to treat and provide first aid for gunshot wounds. What is? Sending these people who are supposed to be learning this to ANY inner city hospital and letting them learn this stuff THERE.

Frankly, we have enough people being shot, accidentally and on purpose, every single day that something like this is simply not, repeat, NOT necessary.

Who would be willing to pick up the lawsuits?
What hospital would allow non registered nurses to perform surgery without a license?

pigs (the animals) don't sue. Human pigs do.

what else would they practice with? pig flesh is the most like humans. here's another shocker: some doctors have used live rabbits to learn surgical skills such as tracheotomies.

peta kills more animals every year than most local animal shelters. they are a sick group, just with slick marketing.
