G.A.F.E.S., could you please reduce the size of those pics in the future. Many fit fine in my 17" screen at 1024x768 but the majority require me to scroll all over the place to see them and you lose alot of the effect in doing that.

Yeah, at fist I was only going to write a post insulting the nationality of the poster of the first "joke", then decided to make fun of my double nationality aswell

Has anyone seen the movie Once Upon A Time In Mexico?

The mexican military comes across as being stuck in the WW2 era (uniform and vehicle wise), except that they use M-16s and I think I saw a HMMWV somewhere.

Strange that the Special Forces parade along with the conventional troops. No face blurring or black boxing either heh. I guess the protection of identity of the SF operators isn't an issue in Mexico.

Thats why the SF have their faces painted.

I guess that offers some level of protection. Though you dont see much of SF parading in other countries, they're always kept secret. Like, SEALs never show their faces, SAS even less, same goes for the Russian "Alpha" groups either. You'd never see them parading in a show of force.
But great pictures noneetheless, thanks for posting them, always interesting to see other countries' military might.
