  • Description

    IN SOUTH VIETNAM, AN ANCIENT DEFENCE WARNING SYSTEM HAS BEEN INTRODUCED BY UNITED STATES TROOPS GUARDING SOME OF THE MAJOR CITIES AND CENTRES.

    THE SOLDIERS HAVE UTILISED GEESE OWNED BY VIETNAMESE PEASANTS, TO SUPPLEMENT THEIR ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT AND BARBED WIRE FENCES. IN THE TIME OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE, GEESE WERE USED BY THE ROMANS TO GUARD THEIR CITIES AND AT ONE TIME THEY WERE CREDITED WITH HAVING SAVED ROME ITSELF FROM INVASION.

    THE TASK OF THE GEESE IN SOUTH VIETNAM IS THE SAME. THE PROGRAMME IS STILL IN THE EXPERIMENTAL STAGES BUT OFFICIAL SOURCES INDICATE THAT IT IS WORKING WELL.
