Each Morsel Allows Chattanooga-Based Reservists to Get Sweet Revenge

Chattanooga, Tenn. -- No U.S. soldier would pass up the opportunity to bite Osama bin Laden's head off, and now, thanks to PETA, the Army reservists of the Chattanooga-based 212th Transportation Company can do just that. That's because PETA sent a shipment of "bin Laden Bites"--special dark chocolates embossed with the image of Osama bin Laden--to Camp Atterbury in Indiana, where members of the 212th are about to ship out to Afghanistan. The chocolates have other benefits too: They are delicious, dark, and dairy-free, which means that no cows were harmed on notoriously cruel dairy factory farms in order to make them, and even lactose-intolerant soldiers can eat them with no ill effects. The shipment was sent in care of Capt. Harry Horton, company commander of the 212th.
"These delicious vegan-chocolate 'bin Laden Bites' give a whole new meaning to the saying, 'Revenge is sweet,'" says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "Our troops deserve a chuckle, and PETA's vegan chocolates will give them that as well."
PETA has its own bone to pick with bin Laden. In addition to bin Laden's murder of humans, one of his sons wrote a memoir in which he revealed that his father gassed the younger bin Laden's two dogs in a chemical-warfare experiment. Also, countless animals suffered and died of starvation and dehydration when their guardians were killed in the September 11 attacks, leaving the animals without care. Many more animals suffered and died from exposure to toxic fumes and from other causes after apartments in the "hot zone" were sealed off for many days and dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, fish, and other animal companions were left to languish inside. In memory of them all, PETA is selling the "bin Laden Bites" online. Proceeds from those sales will go toward the group's SNIP (Spay and Neuter Immediately, Please!) mobile clinic, which provides free and low-cost animal-companion sterilizations and other vital veterinary services to residents of low-income areas.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
