Russian Military Recruitment Video “Pain Makes You Stronger” – and Weekend Links

With all their empire re-building lately, the Russians are needing to attract new recruits and they have a marketing strategy. The new Russian military slogan is “This is… the first day of your new life” and they’ve got a clever new military recruitment video to go along with it. You can watch it below.

Here’s the English translation:

“Who you were yesterday doesn’t concern anyone anymore. What do you know about yourself? What are you capable of?” the voice-over says in Russian, according to a translation. “The questions may remain without answers, but would you be able to sleep well?”

“To know yourself is to know the limits of your abilities. To hell with limitations! Are you ready to break yourself, every day? Here pain makes you stronger, scars are a daily occurrence. Here you decide to prove something to yourself.”

“This you try to see in each shadow of your enemy, because without an enemy there is no battle, and without a battle there is no victory. But in reality, the main enemy … is you, the you from yesterday. Your mission: Track down the enemy, catch up with him, overcome, become better than him and return as a victor. Because tomorrow is the first day of your new life.”

Did you watch the video? The Russians really have a thing about hairless, bare chested men, don’t they? So odd. Anyway, that’s fairly moto, I think. Don’t you? They want bad asses and as we all know, that’s what wins wars.

But then there’s MOTO… The purpose of the military, to kill people and break things.

    If only the Marines hadn’t used a song originally written by noted homosexual Elton John, Saturday night’s alright for fightin’, as their background music.
