The above image is of a US Marine combat photographer in the Pacific in 1943 in World War II… but it stands for all soldiers in all wars, in all climes, in all times. Humanity never leaves the soldier… their heart never completely closes… ask any vet.

21 November 2012. Don’t Mess With the Best… They’re Not Called “the Black Death” for Naught

______________________________

The above are the Russian Naval Infantry, in their traditional black uniforms… that led to their traditional nickname, “the Black Death”. They’re often erroneously called “Russian Marines” in Anglophone publications. Actually, they’re more of an élite unit than the Marines are, and they’d wipe up the floor with the US Marines without breaking a sweat. You see, most Americans have never heard of such battles as Novorossisk (“the Little Land”) in the VOV or Sevastopol in the Crimean War… if they did, they wouldn’t be so belligerent towards Russians. Russians mean it when they say, “All those who march on Russia will be put to death”… they’re not jesting or joking. Ask the Germans
