They Call Him Flipper – And He’s Here To Kill

In 2005 a crack commando team was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit.

These aquatic mammals promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Gulf of Mexico underground.

Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the D-Team.

  1. I appreciate the fact that you manage to see the humor of the situation because if you look at it, there is hardly no perspective from which this does not seem like a disaster:

    From a military administration point of view, some thirty armed soldiers going AWOL is a bit not-so-cool.

    From the point of view of the military in general, some stock of weapons going missing could be considered a problem.

    From the perspective of coastal safety, you cannot like the fact that there are a few unpredictable beings at large who are equipped and trained to do damage.

    From the animal rights point of view, you will have objections to using dolphins to do the Navy’s dirty work.

    Nevertheless you find humor in this situation, which in fact makes you appear more like a European (or even French) man who is happy to laugh about yet another mishap in the USA than the GOP’er you usually portrait yourself as. Way to go, Jay 😉


  2. Well, you have to admit that armed dolphins are kinda funny. Like sharks with frickin’ lasers on their heads…

    In truth, I highly doubt that the dolphins, if they even existed, would have been wearing poison darts, or would have even been used for that porpoise… errr… purpose.

  3. I once started (but never finished) a book by French author, Robert Merle, which featured exactly that: armed dolphins. If I am not mistaken, though, they had nuclear warheads attached to their bodies and started causing trouble because they tended to return to home base once they were activated… That was, by the way, the only book by Merle I did not finish. He is worth reading. Malevile, The Protected Men, La mort est mon métier, and Derrier la vitre are all good and intersting books, especially the last one – an inside view into the spring of ’69 student revolution, that absolutely rebunks the Left’s myth about that Revolution… which is even more interesting since Merle, himself, considered himself part of the Left.

    Anyway, I should HOPE that the dolphins in today’s case were not loaded, no pun intended.

    Do you doubt such a project exists? I would not be surprised, actually. Even though SHARKS WITH LASERS would sound like a pretty funny Halloween movie, wouldn’t it? Kinda like JAWS ON SPEED, or DIE HARD WITH A DOLPHIN 😉
