Anyone thinking about starting a Taliban reenactment group? (There's always a need for targets!) ;)

He spat at me and called me an "Infidel"....so I let the air out of his tires and threw a pork-chop at him!!

Hi,

 

I think they were two : I've seen an other guy with an AK chest rig, wearing a jalaba not really at ease when the pakistanese food sellers laugh at him :lol: !

 

Cheers

Ahhh but was it really an impression? or was this just a chance to show off who they actually are without raising red flags? Now throwing a pork chop at him was really bad taste, an opened omelette with ham MRE pouch would have been so much more appropriate

If so, it's culturally normal in many places for them.

 

I lost count of the hands I've held in Iraq and Africa. It is a show of respect and trust from the senior party. When I was a COIN instructor, I would love finding the most homo-phobic guy in the class, and using him as an example of the mHand hold, cheek kissing!! :lol: :lol:

It may be a bit odd...but if WW2 re-enacting had become popular right after the end of WW2 you can imagine the eyebrows that would be raised when the Waffen-SS re-enactors would be on display. These guys are just ahead of the curve!

Hi All,

I was right opposite this crowd at Beltring/War and Peace Show and to be honest, Me and my friends, some ex servicemen, were uncomfortable with people portraying Taliban/special forces in Afganistan.

Allied soldiers are being killed almost daily and portraying it showed a complete lack of respect to those who have died and more so to their loved ones who could have been at the show.

Re-enacting is walking a fine line and this overstepped it. If the press had got hold of this they would have a field day!

They moan about German SS re-enactors so portraying a current war, especially Taliban, would do nothing but harm to

the re-enacting movement, whatever era portrayed.
