    Out of curiosity, as a Russian officer, - do you approve the idea of each serviceman buying his/her uniform for 20,000 rubles instead of the uniforms being issued by the Army as in the old days? I wonder how is it possible - one trench coat by Yudashkin costs 12,000?

    I don't know what you are quoting, but it sure wasn't from that narod page you posted. Care to show where you got that from?

    I also hope that your running this forum is not against the rules and regulations of the Russian Army and you won't get yourself into trouble. I recall that in the old days if a serviceman wanted to publish an article or a book he had to ask his authorities for permission.

    FYI, Vladimir isn't in the military anymore. Look at his profile.


    This will be updated as needed

    This is very interesting comrades!!I am 'Chris' from Mnchester England. After a 'rebellious' 12 yrs at school, I mentioned joining the British Army (just 'mentioned'!) to my mum. The reply was this. "If you ever apply to join the British army, don't ever come back to this house again". Short and sweet,~~she has a way with words!! In her defence, (spelled with a 'c' and not an American 's')she was a young woman (Oooh~~bombshell!!) at the time, and spoke with an infantile dis~order. Frightened me half to death, so I never joined!. After spending a few years as a 'quasi successful' salesman, 1985~~86~~the miners strike began, under Margaret Thatchers gov't, with he 'anti~union' laws, the new 'quick~mobile' national police~force (soldiers were involved according to many), and the end of 'independant' trade unions~~ as we knew them. The strike was soon followed by the Wapping print workers strike. Rupert Murdcoch set up his 'new' newspaper factory in E. London, where the same, highly mobile bodies of armed men, with prisons at their disposal were used, along with the anti~union laws, batons, horses and riot shields. It is an old english developed trick. If you want to 'smash'~~destroy a community, wait untill they are gathered together, (picket lines, 'gatherings' etc) and ride the horses through the middle and bash heads! Nothing new here, I'm sure you know. The most important ingredient to the breaking of these strikes, was what I call 'Stalinism'!! That is, COLLABORATION with workers 'leaders', to lead the revolts~~demands for work, freedom and justice, up a dead end, to be finally 'beheaded' through 'necessary' subordination to 'legal demands, written on paper, and voted upon in the house of commons! Since these experiences, I have worked, with friends and comrades, in the newly 'liberated' (ahem!) countries in E. Europe, Hungary, Romania, Kosovo(yugoslavia) Czech~~Slovakia etc, often with the power industry workers, over similar and related issues. I am a Pan Europeanist, in that I think this.~~~~All of these countries culture, (productive force, working people, technology, etc,.) has long 'outgrown' it's stable,confinements, families, religions, etc. ~~Its relations of life and production.)I live to do the best (with my continuously stunted 'ability')I can, to bring this European (world) nightmare to a an end. I am presently concerned about the oil workers in Kazakhstan. The situation there seems to bring all the important issues for European workers to the fore, especially the families of the dead! As far as I know, the story of the foundation, construction, and long term 'plan' for the Russian Military, is still an 'illegal' thing to own in the form of 'books'???? Trotsky's military writings, 12 volumes. Do RMF members have access to these documents??ose Tags

    I would be interested to know, what you know???I started this post to introduce myself,and because 'Vladimir's 'critic'?? asked the question 'who is 'in' the military???? Am I??? I look forward to some exchange of ideas, and thoughts with people here. Comradely greetings from Chris~~England. russia unshaven Twisted Evil attack

    Welcome to RMF Chris, nice to have you here.
    Glad to see you started with posting an introduction.

    The only problem there was that you posted in a Rules thread instead of creating your own thread.

    The other error you made was to quote that Rules thread in its entirety... generally when you post a quote, you do so so you can reply to that quote and it is generally bad from to quote an entire post if you only want to discuss parts of what is quoted, or in your case none of what is quoted.

    Anyway... welcome and look forward to having a chat to you.

    BTW the introductions section is to introduce yourself and perhaps ask questions about other members, for chats and discussions you need to find an appropriate section for the topic of discussion and perhaps post a thread there. Smile

    Regards
    GarryB

    Hi Chris!

    Glad to have you. Only slow down a notch there, sport. I can barely understand what you are saying!
    Please space out your monoblocs of text with some punctuation (well-placed punctuation), some new lines, paragraphs, and so on; otherwise it quickly becomes a chore Very Happy
