Since no one has anything interesting to say at the moment...lets "liven" things up a bit. True story...towards the end of WWII, someone had devised a plan to use bats as bombs. They took tiny incendiary devices and attached them to the backs of bats. With plans of dropping them out of planes. I was appalled and amazed at the same time. Where I live there are tons of bats. I love the little guys. Here's a link which talks of the event:

Here's a better idea. Monkeys. Now I know they'd have been a little more expensive but hear me out. Take a monkey, any monkey. Strap a grenade to it and teach it how to pull the pin. Put a parachute on it and away we go. A B-29 could've held a lot of monkeys. Talk about "Death From Above".
Now if thats to violent for ya then maybe the monkeys could've just been armed with sticks. The above idea is totally hypothetical and not to be taken seriously. Unless you're into that, I suppose. Just one of life's little dramas at the expense of yet another monkey. Don't freak out on me...freak in;)

Ok...let's bow our heads for the man's prayer...

There was a plan for dolphins to carry explosives out to enemy ships as well.

Unclean, so unclean....unclean.

I forget which army did this, but they would train dogs to put bombs under tanks. It was great until the dogs started getting blown up.

Russians I beleive.

They trained the dogs to associate tanks with food by feeding them under the tanks (obviously) but when they sent the dogs out to the enemy they found that the dogs only associated food with Russian tanks - and so blew up their own side.

Why not just give the monkeys guns? And tanks. And airplanes. And aircraft carriers. Then mankind can move to Pluto, let the monkeys fight all our wars for us on Earth (which we've pretty much buggered up already).

Whichever's team of monkeys eventually wins gets to kick the other team really hard in the bum 5 times. In the event of a draw, mutually nuclear destruction, or the monkeys giving up and eating bananas, each team will take it in turns to kick each other in the bum. A coin will be tossed to determine who goes first.

And bad-a-bing! That knotty old problem of world peace solved. Job's a good'un.

I think another army tried to train Giant Squids to attack and sink ships. Probably Canada.

yeah but nobody has ever seen a live giant squid so training them would be quite poinless due to their dead-ness being quite a large disability, no?

They come from a big purple 2 dimensional barrel in the sky

I thought that was training dolphins to attack the divers who were sent out to detonate mines. They trained them, but the dolphins didnt want to, so just swam off when released.

So since the link wasn't working I looked up something about it myself.

It might have actually been a good idea. It would, indeed, work in theory..
