Foreign Policy magazine's Internet blog is running remarkable pictures of dogs training for combat -- bounding through ocean waves, charging at possible enemies and jumping from helicopters. One dog was part of the raid on Osama bin Laden's hideout in Pakistan. General David Petraeus says dogs have capabilities that "cannot be replicated by man or machine." The animal which was part of Navy Seal Team 6 on Sunday could have checked for explosives, detected someone in a concealed room or run down anyone trying to escape.
