US Army At War With….Kittens?

From the militarytimes.com:

COIN operations against kittens?

As the wars edge toward a close in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. Army is hunting a new enemy-an adorable, furry widdle kitty enemy.

I mean, isn’t the yawning kitten in Army’s new rabies awareness poster so cute? Yes, he is.

“During deployment,” it warns, “Even kittens can be deadly!” It’s the old adage, don’t judge a book by its cover.

And it’s probably warranted. A soldier actually died of rabies in August after he was bitten while breaking up a dog fight in Afghanistan in January. It’s just awful, especially since rabies is treatable.

The mother of the soldier said her son would have survived if he had been given proper treatment, and Central Command has been investigating the case.
