Added DiffLines:

* HulkSpeak: All of the animals have vocabularies that help them communicate basic concepts, but as the scientists say, "Don't expect the sonnets of Shakespeare." The senator backing the project actually thinks talking animals is going too far and makes the weapons too human, and requests that any future weapons have the ability removed.

* MisplacedSorrow: * The military and most of the scientists involved with the project are much more concerned about the soldiers dying trying to apprehend the animals, rather than the fact that they are sending soldiers to their deaths against three animals who wouldn't hurt anybody unless they are threatened. Animals that they had experimented on and forced to kill, which they planned to terminate without a second thought.
