Good old Psy-Ops. Apparently "Hit me baby one more time" was a favourite at Gitmo camp on an endless loop.

But on the flipside if it is pissing off those who they want to get on their side and not help hide the Taliban, they need to use this tactic carefully.


Still :rockon: Maybe fly Blackhawks around the mountains to flush them out with this tactic, a-la Apocalypse Now.

Aha, now that would be a great headline.

"War in Afghanistan ends as Taliban ranks are rickrolled into submission."

Epic.


I read something a while ago about US forces using constant heavy metal and rock to "torture" people at gitmo, this sounds a bit similar.

No the torture is a different level entirely (I guess you're aware of that, but I just want to make a point here).
Imagine the speakers they are using in the desert to spread the music for miles around, but all hidden in the walls of a single room pointing inwards, almost enough to pop your eardrums, playing for 24 hours a day for weeks on end.

Hearing a bit of rock in the desert, whilst annoying for them, is a universe away from the way music is used in torture.

Oh true, I didn't mean it was the same thing. Probably where the inspiration came from though

To be fair it can't be bad for troop morale either, unless they hate Dexter Holland. ;D

I'm suprised Icer hasn't posted in here saying this yet, but I'd love to hear them blasting some Sabaton*.

*Utterly fitting song, lackluster video. :-\

EDIT: Fixing broken link.

I remember a bit in "Jarhead", where they're out in the desert and a helicopter passes over playing "Break on Through To The Other Side", and one of them's like "That's Vietnam Music, Can't we get our own y'xa'uuk Music?"

Something like that. I only saw it once and it wasn't particularly good. It's odd though that allot of people see it as a jingoistic film despite the fact that there is little or no actual combat (nevermind heroics) and a REALLY y'xa'uuk OBVIOUS lefty message (See, the "good" redneck who knows about the origin of Saddam's chemical weapons versus the "Bad" redneck who is a racist dyeri, the oil covered horse etc.).
