The Dogs of War

2011/05/10

And Caesar’s spirit, raging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice
Cry “Havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war

Julius Caesar, Act 3, Scene 1

One member of the elite SEAL team dispatched to kill Osama bin Laden last week didn’t get a lot of press.  I’ve only found one mention of this particular commando in any news story.

The commando is a dog.

Enter one of the most arresting photo essays I’ve seen in a while.  Major, major neato-factor, here.  And don’t miss the blurb about a Navy SEAL doing a tandem HALO jump with a puppy dog at 30,100 feet.  It’s a world record.

It’s also supremely awesome.
