We are not the same person.
I am a long time member but have never been a moderator here. I also have been moderated by Deino this week.

Deino is a published author on books regarding the PLA aircraft.
I tend to specialize in infantry equipment and have no works to my name.
TE thanks for the message, I'll respond on the main board:

over the years, I had been called like ISIL-supporter, the CIA agent of influence, autist, etc. etc. by, ehm, members,

and sometimes I had to take deep breaths, but it's fun, so have fun, TE!

Nah! don't do that, he is grumpy, but he's the Father of a teen-age daughter,,, (yeah, I had 7 teen-age daughters, which made me mean as hell), and two teen-age sons, one of whom made me mad as hell...(but he's my best bud now)... Master Jura is really a very smart kool Dude, but he does get a little testy,,,, he really does love the F-35!

anyway, hang around, its a fun question, and we all wonder about stuff like that, except bro Jura just wants to know what everything costs, kinda like my old man???
hey, reporting personal attack! LOL!

hey, reporting personal attack! LOL!
so being a "very smart kool Dude" is a personal attack now, I was pleading your case brother, being an apologist for all "Dad's of Daughters"... yes, I raised some amazing little women, but I've spent my fair share of hours laying awake at night, wondering and worrying??? now I've got grandchildren, all amazing, pray for the one due in March, my Baby has had a very complicated pregnancy, and pray for my brother Jim, he's just gone on Hospice....

So I love all you guys, I like posts that seems to be trying to interject something positive, even when I may completely disagree,,, so My friend, many Blessings to you, and thank you for your many kindnesses to our Brother Jeff as he struggles.

It’s India. Pakistan and India have a habit of going overboard with their training and ceremonies.
Not that it’s completely unique. All military have certain ceremonies and unique war cry’s and rituals. Meant to establish a esprit de corps. These are not unheard of for civilian events either like the Mexican wave. In this case its meant to be a Bayonet still but spiced up a bit.

Thanks. So its war cries and rituals. I understand that. Not sure what value does it add to the readiness of the troups. But if it makes them happy, who am I to argue.

Yes just love that. But this, of course, is a later day version of the one did by the great Michael palin's over 20 years ago. Which goes deeper than this clip. He goes on to described what happened when the British departed and left death and destruction in its wake, and how this particular rituals came about.

I supposed, looking at it positively, it is better to have this charade than actually killing each other. On the negative side, maybe we should all stop this nonsense and move on!

But as it is, it certainly attracting great crowds on both sides cheering for their home team, and therefore perpetrate the hidden hatred towards each other.

Well in the case of Bayonet drill, it’s a bit like a martial artist Qi. Trying to amp it up. Get the heart rate going and get some adrenaline in the system. As If they ever needed to charge in a real bayonet charge, unlikely as it may seem it has happened in recent years. They would be doing s under stress of action.
Here are some US Army troops doing a Bayonet course.
Do they need to yell at the top of their lungs “Die” and “Kill” not really, but it’s done to amp them up.
