"US military causes outrage by invading Vietnam using harrowing audio recording 'Crazy in love' from 2003"

From The Daily Mail:

There are a lot of Vietnamese men and women who are angry with Beyonce.

Yesterday's US-backed invasion of Indo-China features audio taken her 2003 smash hit 'Crazy in love', recorded at the time that overweight raptard Jay-Z first started fancying the leggy Texan in 2003.

"Guerilla fighters here looking very carefully at the situation. Obviously a major malfunction. We preferred Hendrix and all the stuff they were listing to last time we kicked their arses," a VietCong public affairs official said as wreckage fell towards Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) on live TV.

But on Monday the 32-year-old defended the Army's use of the song in a statement to ABC News:

"The song was recorded with the sincerest intention to help heal those who have lost loved ones."

The Halo singer added the reference should "remind people that crazy things happen... just because somebody is carpet bombing you doesn't mean they don't love you deep down."

She also said, "My heart goes out to the families of those killed in the first wave of the invasion."

Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond T Odierno added: "The songwriters allowed us to use the audio in tribute to the unselfish work of the military-industrial bloc with hope that they will never be forgotten."

"If you like it then you'd better put Ho Chi Minh on it".

Wonder what would happen if the Yanks were to broadcast Slim Whitman over Iran, as they did to the aliens in Mars Attacks?
