I thought for sure in the first vid they were going to zoom in on a Ministry of Silly Walks sign.

After reading about the cost over runs on many defense procurements, I was under the impression they already DID run our military.

Those fellas are referred to as Evzones. As for the Greek military they gave the Italians all they could handle and gave the Germans a hard time during the 2nd World War. That is their Tomb of The Unknown Soldier in the Youtube piece.

The outfit they wear is traditional garb. A little cultural relativism is in order here please.

Ooh!I am so pissy and self righteous about things tonight!

I was trying to decide between Greece or Cypress. I figured the latter.

You've got to admit, it's startlingly reminiscent of silly walks.

I kind of like the India/Pakistan routine. The crowd definitely enjoys it.


On a different sort of military parade style, this is the proper way to marshal a Panavia GR4 Tornado:
