Pyeonghwa is the world's first anti-suicide bomber dog who was trained in Korea and donated by Samsung. The dog will be serving with UK troops over in Iraq.

The three-year-old golden Labrador is trained to detect suspicious human behavior, including gestures and facial expressions that might indicate a potential suicide bomber. The dog then discreetly signals her handler to take the person out.

Implications - Pyeonghwa's name means peace, in hopes that she will have the power to stop suicide bombers. Her mission will start in just a few weeks in Northern Iraq and hopefully everything goes well! It is amazing how dogs can be trained to do so many things that even humans may have a hard time doing.
