    The soldiers will probably be re-wounded by jumping out of their moving vehicle, trying to get away from the piercing sound . But know this, it is not "TORTURE".

    well, actually it's not like a normal air horn. This get's people's attention a lot faster. Instead of the normal sound it screams something profane. Don't know what it is, want to give it a try Eric?

    Compared to Bush"s Scottisch Terrier Barney, Bo is too darn friendly to ward of the media, so we have to take different measures.

    Unfortunately Mr. President, the blaring sound of this horn is not enough to drown out Rush Limbaugh and Michael Steele's rantings. Nothing's been created to do that yet.
