    Russian Army’s Top 10 Curiosities

    Russia has one of the world’s strongest armies. Some are afraid of it, others respect, but those who serve in the Russian army often speak about it ironically. Indeed, military service is always full of curiosities, strange events and situations. Russians even have a proverb: "Those who served in the army won’t laugh at the circus". Mil.Today has selected 10 strangest stories happened in the Russian army this year.

    The Afghans didn't seem too worried.

          Or the Irish...the Palestinians...or Argentinians. ...or any of the "rebels" that fought imperial England for a few hundred years, most notably, the American colonists. They didn't seem bothered at going up aginst the world's greatest power.

          When you're fighting for a cause (whether right or wrong), you're not frightened of greater forces.
          Witness Paris, New York, London.

          There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

            A relatively minor point. You need to get your history sorted out. ...."the American colonists".

            The disaffected 'American colonists' were primarily British.

            British fighting British.
