Got Skillz???

Special forces' got skillz...Belarus special forces soldiers demonstrate their ability to break concrete slates with their foreheads, at the opening of the the 4th international exhibition of arms and military hardware, the Milex 2007, in Minsk, Belarus. Are these guys fighting in Iraq...because they should be! Let a bunch of them loose in Taliban territory and I think we may be good to move out in a few weeks!

But can they do it with their other head?

Bunch of poofs, not a patch on Tommy Atkins.

Toughness is all about whats on the inside not out. The crazy fuckers in Iraq and Afghanistan do not blink an eyelid before setting off a bomb with kids standing next. I don't know how many soldiers can do that and not go all mental. I was watching a Nat Geo documentary on WW II the other day. It had a part where they showed the initial victory of the Nazis in Russia. Hitler had apparently asked his troops to go kill/rape entire families and communities. The soldiers apparently went crazy and committed suicide.

I'm not saying that the fighters in Iraq are "tough". They are motherfuckers with a completely different value system.

Ratty:
Don't know who Tommy Atkins is...is that the guy who invented the Atkins diet??? Probably not huh!

Yoda:
They are just fucked in the head and totally insane.

Breaking concrete blocks with your head is one thing -- maybe it's just me, but seeing people doing that doesn't make me think "our" security (our in inverted commas since we live in different countries) forces are the brightest bulbs in the box. Is anyone intimidated by it? Does it stop Iraqi insurgents setting off roadside bombs or blowing up a bus full of children? I think more smarts is needed, after all they thought charging into these places with guns blazin' was all it took in the first place...

They would seem to save money on helmets, because presumably they don't need them as badly.

I just hope in the "breaking concrete with your head" training, the "shoot at the enemy, not your own guys"-training was not neglected.

I've got some rather nice lead soldiers, regiments from the battle of Waterloo. I take them out,admire and even talk to them when I'm lonely.
Would you like me to send you some photographs of them Jenny?

Jenny! said...

Fever Dog:
I don't think that it is indimidating, but rather cool that they can break shit over their heads.

Jenny! said...

Zen:
If they keep breaking concrete over their heads, I would think that no training would be necessary b/c they wouldn't be able to retain what was taught!

Jenny! said...

Ratty:
That would be great! You should have them guarding your working girls so no one tries to steal them!

Sarah said...

At least we know that no prison in Iraq could hold them.

Jenny! said...

Sarah:
Tru dat!
