        "Army" which can be used only for the parade, and no more.
        There are probably more NATO occupation forces than the so-called Latvian army.

            Somehow I have not heard about the “great victories” of some kind of Latvian army. However, like the Ukrainian one, though, there is more potential there. But there are no victories, from the word at all. And they know that in case of war they will crush them and not notice. But a good show, as they say, is more expensive than money.

      Especially touched by a man with Beard(!!!!) - the one that is "in the foreground" !!! laughing

      Well, if I were dragging such a beard in the Soviet Army (today I have it - and NOT WELL THAN this "sprat fighter") - so I would be the commander of our Separate Radio Engineering Company for it (in the sense - for a beard) would carry "like a broom" !!!
      Oh, and the "warriors"! request
      PS Sincerely, venik!

    I always liked their camouflage. I did not feel the quality of the fabric, but it was the coloring. Simple, original and functional. A long distance creates a camouflage spot, rather than a plain one, like many of a small pixel.
    And the parade itself is so ... About nothing.

      The troops of Bermond-Avilov (the team of Russian and German deserters, prisoners of war and others), who went to the aid of Yudenich, stopped. The national team was beaten, Yudenich Petrograd did not take, the Reds won. All thanks to the Latvian army. We will not forget the Red Latvian shooters in the Civil.
      Now they are crying about the occupation by the Bolsheviks. They themselves are to blame, as they were freaks 100 years ago, they remained.

    Of course, laughter is not forbidden, and its reasons are clear.
    But if you look at things soberly, then:
    - the army, whatever it may be in quantitative and qualitative composition, is a necessary attribute of the state. It is logical that the smaller the state, the toyier the army.
    - Each nation needs its own elements of national pride. They are not here? Not a problem, think of it. Or dig out the fog of history.
    - from the above it follows - gave statehood? So, you have to endure and all that comes from it. It is a pity and a shame that spills into a Russophobic form. But you will not be forcibly sweet.
