US Troops Use Rock Music Against Taliban
US forces are using music from Thin Lizzy, Metallica and The Offspring to try and force Taliban insurgents in the southern Afghanistan province of Helmand out into the open.Said one officer from these American forces: “Taliban hate that music. Some locals complain but it’s a way to push them to choose. It’s motivating Marines as well. There are no obscenities but we tell them they’re gonna die”.
It’s not the first time American troops have used rock and metal bands as a weapon. In fact, it’s becoming almost the norm!
