Mexican armed forces on parade.Wow, a lot of high peso rifles on parade down south. And didn’t the Mexican armed forces just replace all their standard rifles with new H&K G-36s last year? Has the economy picked up down there, or are they getting an infusion of military aid from abroad?

And good trigger discipline on the People’s Republic of Kim troops. Not to be bitter but I would not be too sad if that unit had a few NDs into the reviewing stand.

I suppose that if you will examine those RPG's you will find that projectile is glued, pinned AND safety-wired to the barrel, all trigger inner workings are removed and warhead filled with sand and all this stuff (including the genesis of the soldiers up to 5 generations before) then double-checked by state security.

Hardly any chance for any surprise or luck, i think.

California sold all the ones Ronnie wouldn't service to Mexico...

Mexico just got like $400 million from US recently, IIRC.
IMO, what a damn waste of money, who would one need a battalion of .50 cal-armed soldiers? Wouldn't that money be better spent recruiting more soldiers? Or perhaps training them better? Maybe buying more useful weapons?

Doesn't the N. Korean photo look like something out of A Chorus Line or something? They seem to be all dancing.

I imagine that most of those Mexican troops are probably wishing they were carrying an FX-05 instead...

mexican army? i thought they were defeated by drug cartels. or was that the police department where they all threw down their badges and ran for the hills?

I bet it's just an almalgam of snipers from infantry battalions that the parade adjutant wanted to all be together, capitalizing on the public's craze with snipery and mall-ninjaism.

What in the world does an armed force like that need 50 caliber rifles for? Except for designated sniper squads, 50 calibers should be banned from the military forces of all nations and should only be owned by civilians.

Those are the mexican drug cartel, how do you think they can afford the .50 BMG's?

Far back rown, right under the OP's word "Korean" and 3 1/2 to the right, down one :D . BTW, is it just me, or does that look like an 11 year old just to the left of center?

Doesn't the N. Korean photo look like something out of A Chorus Line or something? They seem to be all dancing.

:evil: Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.

Notice the Korean at the bottom left. He seems to be proudly proclaiming to the comrade beside him [in an arrogant, condescending tone]: "Mine is bigger than yours!" :neener:

Great. So what's the idea? Wait until some middle-aged turkey-necked female politician in America bans all of the effective weapons, then invade? :neener:

80s and 90s Military drawdowns and gun control? I had a suspicion they wanted just enough of a force left to surrender.

It looks to me like Our government must be selling arms to their government. The bad guys are probably getting them when the Mexican police tuck tail and run. When you see that many Barretts, that tells me that it isn't civilian ownership of Barrett's that is supporting the gangs in Mexico but rather our own, and their own, governments.

More reason why only civilians should be permitted to own guns. The government is just not responsible enough to be trusted with them.

…a battalion of .50 cal-armed soldiers?I bet it's just an almalgam of snipers from infantry battalions that the parade adjutant wanted to all be together+1. Or maybe graduation from sniper school.

Hardly any chance for any surprise or luck, i think.Yet another in the endless string of life’s disappointments.

Just how many snipers does Mexico need? Who are they planning on going to war against? Certainly not the drug cartels. If they were using that kind of force against the drug cartels they'd have defeated them. So who are they planning a war with? They don't have any kind of a threat to support that. They're just a bunch of super-mall-ninjas.

Maybe they spent all their money on rifles, ninja suits, and face paint and didn't have enough left over to train their snipers.
There must be an awful lot of black terrain in Mexico since they don't seem to have night vision on their rifles. Seems like those guys would stick out like a tic on an albino in a desert environment.
