Metallica in fight against Taliban

The US Army are fighting the Taliban with the most harmful weapon known to the Western world - heavy rock. Not just any rock music - according to the Associated Press, it's some pretty dreadful stuff including Metallica, The Offspring and Thin Lizzy. The music is being used to drive out insurgents hiding in farming communities in Marjah, Afghanistan. The soldiers use concerted military vehicles which pump out 'Pretty Fly For a White Guy' and other classics.

Says a soldier, 'Taliban hate that music some locals complain but it's a way to push them to choose. It's motivating Marines as well,'. However Lieutenant Colonel Christmas, the commander of US Marines in the area has called the tactics 'inappropriate' and has vowed to 'ask this to stop right now.'

Lieutenant Christmas seems a little too polite for a Marine...someone send him to swearing school, quick.
