One Response to Greening the Military

  1. Hmmm, how the armed forces can be more “green” while destroying the enemy’s assets. Perhaps manure grenades so they can leave behind fertilizer when they blow up something. Instead of .223 ammunition, they can load their cartridges with acorns instead. Ah! And for their shotguns, how about watermelon seeds?
