Fox Embed Rick Leventhal checks in

Fox Embed Rick Leventhal: I have a sad story to tell.. this unit had a pigeon to warn it of threats to WMD.. it usually stayed in its cage..it was named Kent, after the previous commander... usuaully they would leave it inside.. but they wanted to give it some air.. so they left the cage outside .. (shows an empty cage) .. and this morning .. a dog got to him (laughs).. it isn't funny...it is sad... (asks soldier) Seriously, are you still concerned about WMD?

Soldier: Well, we're not as concerned as we were before but... and we are sad about Kent... though we didn't know what we were gonna do with him.. would we take him bakc with us.. would we have to eat him... I guess now we know...

Later...
Smith: Many emails have come in lamenting deat of Kent.. has a fund been set up?
Leventhal: Heh.. Not to my knowledge...
Troops are discussing what happened to Saddam's guys... when 10% of population controls othe 90% ... when that ends.. payback is a bitch...
Interviews reserve cop Major Tom (?) of Beverly Hills PD: looking for them... but it can be controlled.. if we do this right.. once they get civilization... it could be a great thing..rememebr the LA riots? It was nothing like that.. it was guys who had a chance to get a fridge.. who went to get a fridge...

The Iraqi Ministry of Information responded with this press release:

"Even our dogs are rising up and eating the infidel pig Americans."

Hey, the dog is probably happy. Chalk up another victory for the Marines, sacrificing weapons to save even the dogs of Baghdad (of course not german sheperds or french poodles).

This wanton abuse and neglect of innocent pigeons by the military is unacceptable.

I'm still impressed that the dog managed to open the cage.

Talk to the Brits - they have a spare.

War Crime!!! War Crime!!!! War Crime!!!

It's sad that my generation does not remember what our own fathers fought for. My dad (navy) lost a limb for all of you child like, ignorant war protesters. He helped give you the freedom to voice your opinion, not bash our country! If your so much against the war, I'm sure our great PRESIDENT will give you a one way ticket to Iraq. You can do your thing there & then our GREAT Military can bring you back as war criminals!!!!! Get a grip!
