It’s Like Camp, But With Assault Rifles!

I find the tone of this NYT photo essay on Putin’s “Patriotic Youth Camp” to be disturbingly lighthearted. Now, granted, this is the New York Times we’re speaking of here, but did no one look at these images and find the concept of a youthful paramilitary organization in a (cough) “previously” Communist country more worrisome than winsome?Let us all rememeber, please, that Vladimir Putin is ex-KGB, and if he has his way, these are the kids who are going to be parachuting in over Colorado.

Can we get someone on this, please? Kthx.
