military intelligence?

I'm absolutely sick over this.....

With all of our so-called human/advanced intelligence, the US Army can't come up with a humane alternative to this cruelty that they call training???

Army to Shoot Live Pigs for Medical Drill

Consider how humans value one living thing over another. There's no doubt in my mind that if the Army were using dogs or cats in this despicable "exercise" that the public would be outraged, yet other animals --- pigs in this case --- are somehow fair game. I suppose in the minds of most, it's a simple equation: pigs = bacon + sausage. My math is different: animals = a right to a cruelty-free life + sentient beings who comprehend their suffering.
