So, which country does this soldier come from (one on the right).

I'll give you a clue - he is not Chinese.

I can tell by the weapon and the bright green shirt. I really liked staying at the Irish camp when I was in Kosovo.

Is the correct answer.

Next time I'll photoshop them naked to make it a bit trickier.

I can tell by the eyebrows and the fact that he's wearing his watch on the right arm.

Senegal and the United Arab Emirates had received a small amount of FAMAS rifles (possibly F1) from France, though it was unknown when they had received them. Djibouti also uses this weapon in its military as the standard arm for footsoldiers.

The rifle (G2) was known to be exported to the Philippines, where it saw service with the Special Action Force and certain army units of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

Don't let the fact that are two men in that pic deceive you Drekkus! You know you can sort it out!

Hmm, they're not carrying the same gun, are they?

There are two people in the picture. The front one (slightly to the right) is from Ireland and the other is some French wanker. ;)

Picture was taken in Kabul last week, by the way.

You can tell the guy on the left is French - the smell of garlic is causing the Irish soldier's body armour to peel off.

Hmm, why is there an Irish soldier in Kabul? I thought it was a NATO affair and not a UN one.

Cruddy

As there is a lone Chinese police officer in Kabul, I see no reason why a seconded Irishman couldn't make it there.

Talking of police, try and ID the country here;-

I'd go with Peru but that is just a blind guess.

Cruddy

Blind guess or check the URL? ;)

Doesn't matter, I just thought it was... unusual pic, that's all.

That girl on the right is about to go chew on some live female copflesh.

Shit, I didn't even bother checking the URL. I just guessed bacause the people looked Native American and because it looks like a Catholic church in the background. :lol:
