    By Harriet Arkell, Evening Standard

    This is K-Dog, the coalition forces' most surprising weapon against Iraq.

    With a camera strapped to his fin, the bottle-nose dolphin is one of about 100 dolphins and sea lions helping to clear shipping lanes in the Gulf to ensure a safe passage for vessels, including those which will provide humanitarian relief.

    K-Dog and his handler Sgt Andrew Garrett are part of a multinational team, CTU-55.4.3, consisting of Naval Special Clearance Team One, Britain's Fleet Diving Unit Three, Australia's Clearance Dive Team, and two Explosive Ordnance Disposal units.

    A Pentagon spokesman said: "The team works in both deep and shallow waters, looking for mines and marking them. Dolphins have been used like this by the US Navy for more than 30 years, and have proved themselves more reliable than robots."

    He said that unlike robots, the dolphins did not run out of power, nor did they go missing or have problems communicating from the sea bed.

    i believe it . marine world. marine world.

    dolphins have a pretty big brain compared to their body. they're second, right next to humans. the architecture of the dolphin brain also has two hemispheres, but in addition to the three lobes, its cerebral organ has a fourth and developed lobe named the paralimbic lobe. it's unique to cetaceans and is the lobe where all senses are located. the benefit to having these senses in one lobe is the ability to make immediate and complex perceptions far from what humans can ever comprehend. i'm not sure if this is true, but scientists have found out that in comparison to the primate brain, the dolphin has much more intelligent.

    as well with their communication. i'm sure that you've heard that the dolphin can communicate with eachother that humans can not ever understand. or we've been trying to understand but havent gotten to that point yet. sound moves faster and further in water.

    ^ oh yes... dolphins are incredibly smart.

    so here's the tough question:

    If A dolphin could understand the political situation involved,
    would it still take part on the US side of things?
