quote: Ukraine's secret unit of spy dolphins and seals have defected to Russia and are now swimming under Kremlin orders, officials revealed today. The Army has been using the underwater mammals since the 70s, and they remained under Ukrainian command after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The bottlenose dolphins are trained to hunt for mines, plant bombs on hostile ships or attack enemy divers with special knives or pistols fixed to their heads.

I watched a Discovery channel show on this many years ago and apparently we have trained dolphins that swim around our fleets with long needles attached to ther noses. The needles have inflatable bags and if they find any commie divers around our ships they stab them with the huge needle and it deploys the air bag rocketing them to the surface. The show also said that the Russians have trained killer whales that will kill any divers found around the Russian fleet. It was a pretty interesting show. I don't know which way would be worse to go.
