War is hell

“War is hell” – This is what an Estonian soldier says after a firefight with the Taliban in this documentation about NATO forces operating in Afghanistan. The series follows Estonian soldiers as they fight the Taliban on the outskirts of Nadi Ali.

Why am I posting such videos in my blog? Hmm… I think I have enough of Anti-Nato-HippieWierdos. Recently I’ve seen an Anti-Nato-Poster on the street near the office calling for a demonstration or something. I got so angry that I nearly teared it down.

… and btw I think the Mi-24 Hinds nicknamed “flying tank” are scaring the hell out of the Taliban 😀 They have seen them before 😉

10 years of NATO membership

2220622248_feb1af4b7f_o

It’s now 10 years since Poland joined the NATO. A historic moment and a win-win situation for the Western Allies and the Polish Army!

The Polish Army is serving in the hottest war zones – protecting the peace in places like Afhanistan

More Information (in Polish): http://www.tvp.info/news.html?directory=2788&news=890421

These days the Polish PLZ Mielec (that has been aquired by US Sikorsky) is delivering the first parts of the S-70iTM BLACK HAWK helicopter. Great stuff! Check out this nice Black Hawk video. The new BLACK HAWK will be build entirely by Mielec in future BTW.

According to TVP.info the Polish airfoce has now 48 F-16 multirole jet fighters additonaly to the Mig-29 & SU-22 fleet. Impressive!

OMG – Russia welcomes Obama with missiles on NATO border

omg

Putin and Medvedev welcome Obama with new nice shiny missles that are supposed to destroy the Missile Defense System in Poland & Czech Republic! Moreover they are going to install radio jamming systems.

In my opinion this is a political move. Not military. The US exactly knows that Russia has Topol-M Missiles that can’t be intercepted. I call this aggression if you want.

BTW: I want this game 😀

Sadly enough how Russians welcome Obama… and this is no game 😦

This is actually the missle they are going to install.
