Chesty Puller and George Patton are rolling in their graves

So it seems that the tree huggers have put pressure on the US military to make kindler and gentler ammo for our boys. The DOD announced that a new kind of ammo from small arms to tank rounds and mortar rounds will now be biodegradable and (are you ready for this?) have seeds inside that will grow plants as they degrade.

The only thing I can think of is that if they put poison ivy seeds inside it will
really put a hurting on the enemy. Or how about pot seeds. Then the enemy will get stoned and we can just walk in a roll them up. (no pun intended).

I truly hope that Gen. Mattis will channel the spirits of Chesty Puller and George Patton and find the idiots who came up with this idea and put them on permanent mess duty.

This is as stupid as the rules of engagement that requires us to hold our fire until fired upon and hold fire till we're sure there are no civilians present.

Just think if they get their way they'll bitch about invasive species of plant life. "Why are there desert ironwood growing in Alaska?"

And who is going to pay for this stellar idea? Why, us taxpayers of course.

Everyone notice all the last minute programs being installed?

If it's still as lethal and doesnt cost more money, I'll do my job to repopulate the forest and flowers of America.

They are still working out the detailed technical aspects in order to get the seeds to arrange in the pattern of a peace symbol!

This is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard of!

Got to step in here,

I got one acronym:

TPICMSMG

Triple Purpose Improved Conventional Munition Scott's Miracle Grow

For all the 08s out there.

Seriously though I'm concerned for the issue of invasive species. We'll have to have a set of geography specific munitions so we don't plant the wrong ecologically unstable species.

Post iron shower of course.

Don't forget desert ironwood. The second most dense wood on earth where the thorns are like nails that will go through any tire and if you step on it your done. Trying to pull a boot off with it still in the sole and your foot really sucks. It don't even float.

It will be interesting to see how many millions are spent on developing a seed that is heat tolerant to the extent that it will not be burned along with the powder. Also, we should feel bad for our wounded enemies that suddenly sprout pine tree seedlings after being hit. This will also expand into a new medical field as doctors try to develop the best procedures for treating corn stalk wounds. This could revolutionize war.
