PostSubject: KILLING with MUSIC!   Fri Apr 09, 2010 4:22 am

The sounds of Metallica and Thin Lizzy are now being used on the frontline in Afghanistan, according to a report by the AFP. Marines are allegedly blasting heavy metal into villages in Marjah, hoping to subdue the Taliban through ringing ears.

"Taliban hate [this] music," said a US special forces sergeant. "Some locals complain but it's a way to push them to choose [sides]. It's motivating marines as well." Apparently, when rebel forces start firing on American soldiers in Marjah, an armoured vehicle with "powerful speakers" fires up the tunes, blaring rock and heavy metal so loudly that it can be heard two kilometres away. The tactical playlist continues for several hours.

As the military blasts Offspring's Pretty Fly for a White Guy, children cover their ears and, it is claimed, insurgents lay down their arms. Mixed in with the songs are messages from the Afghan government and threats to the Taliban resistance. There are no obscenities, the AFP's contact promises, "but we tell them they're gonna die".

Soldiers may not be DJing in Marjah for much longer. "It's inappropriate," said lieutenant colonel Brian Christmas, the commander of marines in northern Marjah. Christmas claimed he had not heard of (or heard) the audio attacks. "I'm going to ask this to stop right now."

OOHRAH! F**K "Watch your language" UP, DEVIL DOGS! KILL KILL KILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If the brass puts an end to it, I'm going to be deeply dissapointed. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Besides, we know for a fact this works. We did it during the Invasion of Iraq (my cousin's unit used to play "Ride of the Valkyries" through their speakers like in Apocalypse Now, Laughing ), we did it in Desert Storm (mainly the Doors, the Animals, you know, all the Vietnam bands) and we did it in 'Nam (all different kinds). We know it's an excellent psycological weapon. If it's a bonus to our guys and a weapon against the carpetfliers, please play "Enter Sandman" just for me.

I remember a scene from Apocalypse Now, the scene where they were at the Do Long Bridge. I remember how Willard's movement was outlined by the flash of mortars and explosions, while eerie music played in the background.... that was such and awesome scene

Hope they don't play anything from The Prodigy. "Invaders Must Die" would be a little foreboding, even if the OpFor couldn't understand it.

I wonder if they've got any of the German bands going... Rammstein, Megaherz, KMFDM, Eisbrecher, Stahlhammer, and the like. Those guys sure have some good, motivating songs.
