Sure. If all Russian men looked like Vladimir Mashkov, and all women - like Svetlana Antonova

It would improve the films - knowing that we were watching a bunch of strikeball players would add comedy value, much needed for those of us who can't take films with names like Action Man 2 seriously.

If you spent a day on our range, you would not think it is funny, Nick. Even Specnaz uses strikeball to train.

They've chosen it themselves to go running around in the mud being pelted by plastic bullets, for God's sake! I repeat, they could get a cheap pair of trainers, a cheap tracksuit and go for a pleasant run along the nearest river! It's highly amusing.

Running does not train you to make split second decision. You do not learn quick reaction skills, strategic leadership, endurance, and physical and psychological adaptation to a challening environment from a morning jog.

All right, after the run, you can have a quick game of ping-pong.

Again, not the same

Have you ever stormed a building?




This is what I do, every month. Jelous?

Not to mention the male bonding one experiences in this, working together to reach a common goal


Plus, we can do this

Picture not upside down

Anyway, if, God forbid, there is ever a war between Russia and Europe, you will quickly understand the difference between those who train at war every month and those who... jog in the morning and play ping pong. And smoke marijuana and ride bicycles, in the case of the Dutch.

If Russia were ever foolish enough to militarily threaten Europe, it is official standing US doctrine to immediately reply with a pre-emptive nuclear 1st strike.

That's been standing official US policy since 1966.

That is why I said "God forbid".

But, you know, there are many people here who obsess with conspiracies of NATO to attack Russia, especially to invade our European exclave Kaliningrad. There are also many who see potential aggressors in China or Japan. In fact, there is a video, "Russia without Putin? Welcome to Hell!"
http://vimeo.com/36281503
which was made, obviously, by Putin supporters, and talks about how, without Tsar Vladimir's strong leadership, the country would stumble, Nemtsov and other corrupt "dermocracts" (popular slur for democrats here, dermo = shit in Russian) would quickly plunder all the national resources, ultra-nationalists would take over Saint Petersburg (where they had always been strong), Islamists would seize control in North Caucasus, the Stavropol region would turn into a burnt, lifeless battle ground between Chechen and other Islamists and Cossack militias; NATO would roll into Kaliningrad; the Chinese PLA - into most of the South Eastern Siberian regions; and Japanese forces would land on the Kurilles, Sakhalin, and Vladivostok. Propaganda, obviously. But it shows you the current popular mindset here.

Oh? So why did Putin have to cheat his way to 50% of the vote?
