Afghan National Army training.
Recruits being trained by US military mentors/trainers. 200 men to 1 instructor! On the US M16 assault rifle and not the AK47.
Mindblowing, watching the instructor in front of 200 men explain stripping and assembling to mainly illiterate soldiers, some of whom don’t even speak the language of the interpreter.

Good to see you back Bob. Hope all is going well!
The scary thing is no one will ever listen until its too late and even then they will make out they know best….
Good to have you back blogging again Bob, it’s been a while.
Where have you been recently….missed you…especially in relation to the recent puppet like decision of our Prime Minister to follow the US into Syria with (no joke) six F 18s and 320 support personnel.
Big thanks Paul, Alan et all.
Been a wee while, settling into the US, finding my way about, new family routines etc.
Far more blogging to come!
Very best regards to all,
Glad to see you back ” on Deck” Bob and yep feeling history repeats ?
Jaysus I think its better if those boys get trained in using water pistols. Better for every one in the vicinity. lol
Bob glad you are back.
Welcome back. One guess why the M16!
Glad to see someone who has what seems like common sense. I have missed your blog Bob. Do you have any books coming out soon.
