elementary, dear watson:
AFP: When insurgents open fire in Marjah, an armoured vehicle wired up to powerful speakers blasts out country, heavy metal and rock music so loudly it can be heard up to two kilometres (one mile) away.
The playlist has been hand-selected to annoy the Taliban, according to one US special forces officer.
„Taliban hate that music,” said the sergeant involved in covert psychological operations, or „psy ops”, in the area in Helmand province.
„Some locals complain but it’s a way to push them to choose. It’s motivating Marines as well,” he added after one deafening round of several hours including tracks from The Offspring, Metallica and Thin Lizzy.
