    You have no clue. Those Greek Evzones dress like that when forming the Honour Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in front of the Greek Parliament in Athens. There was a terrorist bomb blast in the Square in January this year. Despite a telephoned warning, those guards in the funny outfits refused to abandon their posts. The officer who informed them stood with them when they declined his offer. Luckily they were all uninjured in the explosion.

    I can hardly type while laughing do hard.

    I thought kilts were sissified.

    You have to be tough to wear kilts, and I'm guessing you have to be a real bad ass to wear this goofy Greek uniform with the poofter pom pom slippers with pantyhose or tights what ever you want to call them.

    Too funny, do they have a don't ask don't tell rule?

    what do you think the outcome will be?

    I'm suprised noone has said Russia? Maybe not enough posts yet.
    This is a repeat of 1914?

    Eh? Do they or don't they respect guys in uniform?

    And in which hoods? That may be an American thing, because the military has a considerably lower prestige in many other countries.
