                        It's true. The usual chevrons are removed and the green ones are attached, it's really hard to see them from afar. On uniform, the stars also change to green or black.

            Very much to do with it. "With wolves to live like a wolf howl." Although I am an Orthodox person, I am not going to turn the other cheek after hitting the first. For compliance with the Geneva Convention, contact your compatriots and your allies. We all say so - "They don't come to someone else's monastery with their own charter." Now you are in a strange monastery, therefore, if you do not respect, then at least take the trouble to reckon with its charter. Let the charter of the Geneva monastery be observed there. Regarding our signature under it, you can not remind, do not bother, the time for playing by the rules has passed.

            The UN mandate is one, radiological weapon (I wonder what it is wink ) is different, and the Geneva Convention is the third. The NMNIP of the Geneva Convention does not violate this.

            Because it is toxic and "radioactive" (when it is already inside the body). Nobody got sick with radiation sickness from him, and oncology from asbestos (simple slate if you want) is much more than from uranium. The objects are "contaminated" no more than the air is contaminated in the Moscow traffic jam. Dust, it is any dangerous, especially from asbestos. Particles of dust (I do not remember exactly what size) settle in the lungs and there is one step to cancer. By the way, where are the ecologists and why aren't they shouting about the dangers of lead in bullets? It's super toxic, isn't it?
            Uranium is not what you would like to see around you in everyday life, but also not what they try to scare us with.

Although deserving of the lack of analogs in the world of helicopter add-on systems in the air, a stabilized electro-optical system with information output to the pilot’s glasses and finally multi-barrel machine guns for airborne shooters are worthy of note, and all this is done in a helicopter of the 1962 model. good
          That would be on the Mi-8 to see this.

Our fighter - "Well, that means we arrived at the collection point, ... we worked on targets, completed the tasks, firing, launches, so we are happy to go home.

    And now the discavery NATO soldier gives interviews at the exercises - "It was certainly not easy, but they prepared us for this! After all, we are the stronghold and the proud of the united states! We knew what we were doing and walked without looking back. Smoke and ash covered our faces. and a training but very intense battle. At some point it seemed that the strength was already running out. But we held out. Once, near the mortar, my arm almost tore off, but I returned to the post! ... and so on, etc., for half an hour of carts and stories about how brave sailors (infantrymen, it doesn't matter) went through the thorns to victory.

    Like this. And then they say that we just landed on parachutes. AND THEY! Conducted BIG military exercises.

                I completely agree, both with us and with you.
                I heard that they were going to pass a law in Israel at which the Orthodox would be called up for military service, I don’t know how it ended.

                    It is necessary to explain that you hope in God and do not bet yourself.

                      Everything is much more complicated. They require special conditions: to pray a couple of times a day, super kosher food so that the women are not around, etc. The army is not yet ready to accept them in such quantities. Summon several battalions as a pilot project. By the way, soldiers from them are not bad.

                        I believed that Israel was a secular country and the conditions in the army were the same for everyone, I did not know about such an attitude in the army towards the Orthodox, I was surprised that there were too many conventions for the war.

              If the army did a tattoo, then the army does not care. And the young lady there probably records how many terrorists sent to Allah that day. laughing

        You are a professor, but write, sorry, nonsense. Where did you get the idea that the photos are Russian servicemen? You are told in Russian - militia, self-defense, and so on. And now we turn on the imagination - what will prevent (if necessary) a couple of thousand Russian specialists to terminate the contract with the RF Ministry of Defense, to complete the task in as non-military personnel of the RF Ministry of Defense and again to conclude it? I am glad for "a soldier of the IDF without masks and with identification marks", but they cannot boast of achievements similar to the return of Crimea.

          The Russian language has said to you, militia, self-defense, and so on.

          I drove in when I saw VSS, SVU-AS and Val with Pecheneg (well, there is no way to purchase them, unlike the same Kalash, which cost 1000 - 2000 Baku) ... A friend from the Ministry of Internal Affairs said that when they took (and this was the beginning 2000) for BCC and Val asked 6500 and 5000 American rubles ...

          Well, I immediately believed it, that's just why no one in the world believed it. Especially when they saw military equipment "bought in the store".

    Show you the normal face of a Russian warrior. You (foreign soldiers) immediately start to smell unpleasantly, and ask to go home to mom in the United States.

    That is what this impersonality explains. Thank you for enlightening. Do not tell me, and the lack of insignia in violation of the Geneva Convention with what is connected?

    offended uncle that there are no stripes. pichal.

    photo without masks in exercises. Bravo! ))) This uncle is so funny here. )))

      Why should I be offended? I just want to find out for what purpose the Geneva Conventions were violated.
      What are the teachings? This is in front of the entrance to Gaza. Here is another photo not from the exercises. War in lebanon

      Operation in Gaza

      Want more? Do I have them?
