    I sincerely say that I am happy for our Far East Marines. There was a time when they did not just forget about the Far East, but decided to whom and on what terms to lease it (90s). And in the current century, some "liberals" even offered assistance in raising these issues again.

      in fact, they never recruited idiots and blockheads in the MP ... for some reason we tried to drive this category into another elite branch of the army (I was always perplexed about this) and we often observe the brightest representatives on a great holiday ... and in the MP, and in the Navy as a whole, there has always been a very strict selection for health and mental development ...
