Ok, I lied, these are photos from the chinadaily about some all woman fighting force in China. They have been around since 1962, just in time for the cultural revolution. According to the chinadaily “Their major tasks keep shifting from national defense, port construction, and public order maintenance in its early days to the economic development as well as social service at present. Nine generations have joined in the past 49 years, and some customs have been inherited. [Photo/Asianewsphoto]”

Below is another shot of a newb or fresh meat as they are known. They, being newbies lack the killer instinct, the single-minded focus to enable one to give up it all for a small book.

My Chinese is rusty but the lady on the right said “Listen here you scrabble-toothed little tart. Just keep that freaking bayonette pointed out their towards Japan and you and me will get along just fine….
