Prazdnichek, which gave the military reform

The holiday, which gave the military reformWell, and it was August 2 … Not a calendar date, and prazdnichek, for sure, the most recognized, most unpredictable, the most recognizable … Only sailors and guards can brag that also celebrates its own Day throughout the state. But its scope Airborne day can not be compared with anything … Even the old men, which have already served grandchildren to this day proudly wearing vest … Paratrooper — this is the title as merit, as a lifestyle …

This year I had the opportunity to meet the present day in a Siberian town, far away from Europe, from the bitter side of the park, from the solemn salute and famous fantanov. But prazdnichek always prazdnichek, gathering places, in principle, known. Because after dinner, I was in a local park.

I'm not going to talk about how to celebrate, as the classic yelling chants like obymalis quite strangers, as were lying in the bushes to get over … This picture can behold in any town of, well, in the former republics of the Russian …

It is understood that the company we have gathered according to their age. Young people had fun without the help of others, meet colleagues, walked with the girls, but the people are more impressive for 30-35 decorum were sitting in a cafe, eating kebabs, drank brandy and remember who and where … Police scored superiors, strolling flocks, in anticipation of an attack raging marines … But nothing happened …

All this I have told only in order to express an idea that was born exactly on this day, particularly in end-of-cluster paratroopers. I looked at the men who were sitting near the table and beheld really paratroopers. Healthy, even a bit pogruznevshy, but perfectly cooked men. Were sitting at the table really the ones who even after 30-50 was a real force, the real power and the willingness to do battle tasks.

And nearby, such as vests, but in the NATO peacekeeping berets frolicked most perfect boy. One dead, sosiskopodobnye boys. Against the backdrop of riot police or whatever they are called at the moment, they looked quite sorry …

We were sitting and the story of the realnosti, what our army is reincarnated in this period of reforms. When the fighters in the total mass is not so noticeable, but here in prazdnichek …

State that puzzles Navy changed, maybe you can, but after landing was there and the troops will be frisky, immediate response. Specifically, the paratroopers have to wage war without all of the weapons and equipment, which is currently developing so rapidly. Pens stifle the opponent and punching machine for the road itself. Survive on physics, due to the possibility to live where life is unreal. And he could demobilization with a weight of 60 kg? How he will carry on the hump? How much did he pass?

It seems to me that the military reform in Russian has not led to a decrease in airborne combat readiness of units, it led to the destruction of the very concept of Airborne. Soldiers of the year not only can not be a real warrior elite units, it generally can not be a fighter in the sense that it is invested in ponyanie time in Russian.

Wonderful tales of the Agreement remain in parables, the subject began to play and try not to raise. In contrast, the linear part of the Navy did not show. Reconnaissance only and exclusively in the Southern neighborhood.

It is clear that money is never enough clear, that the elite do not need just because there fighter and may even think it is clear that a powerful army to control and unsafe country and regions, but … The more we engage in war? More precisely, by whom? Middle reserve, which just have the first months after the beating death of those who accept the first blow, we have less than a militia. Not trained, are not able to really resist-trained army. Neuzh it is not understood in MO? Neuzh that do not understand that the country's leadership? What needs to be done, that they realized it?
