    Butt-naked marines wrestling

    The fight appears to have been "directed" by two non-commissioned officers. One was dressed in a surgeon's outfit, the other dressed as a schoolgirl.

    The marine who filmed the alleged fight told the newspaper the ritual had been more than drunken antics and that the protagonists were forced to fight in a humiliating manner.

    The images show two naked men in the centre of a large group. At first the pair appear to fight with large mats rolled round their arms.

    But then a man dressed in a blue surgeon-style outfit motions for them to use bare fists.

    When one of the soldiers complains, the man appears to kick him in the face, allegedly leaving him unconscious on the grass.
    I didn't think this sorta madness really went on... I can see how a fighting type initiation may have come about; but what's with them all being naked and the guys in charge dressing up as girls?
    Straight punches make you go blind. More damage is done to a criminals nervous system when they are struck. Strikes that make you stronger. All this and more systema douchebaggery:

    You should see the clip. They have big plastic pipes on their arms and are swinging at one another.

    The main hoo hah about the video is that the 'young recruits', as the media has called them, were 'forced' to take part in the duel, and the loser was then kicked unconcious by his superior officer. Which, I suppose, is taking it all a bit far.

    If that bit is true, then fine, but I can't help but wonder if they're making a big 'bullying' story out of what looks more like the soldiers having some silly ritual involving nudity and swinging pipes at one another.

    Now, if we were talking USA Marines...it'd be a heck of a lot scarier.

    Nah, your boys just blow the **** out of anything that moves. We get all that out of our system first by partaking in cockfighting, then a spot of crossdressing, then afternoon tea.

    And nobody speaks of it ever again.

    Just a little bit of the old ultra-violence, chaps.
