Rule 5 Blogging: Norwegian Army

It’s the weekend and time, once again, for THE FIRST STREET JOURNAL’S version of Rule 5 Blogging. Robert Stacy McCain described Rule 5 as putting pictures of pretty women somewhat déshabillé, but, on this site, our Rule 5 Blogging doesn’t put up pictures of Denise Richards in her summer clothes, but women, in full military gear, serving their countries in the armed forces. The terribly sexist authors on this site celebrate strong women, women who can take care of themselves and take care of others, women who have been willing to put their lives on the line in some not-so-friendly places, women who truly do have the “We can do it!” attitude. Today: the Norwegian Army!

Norway’s Army is small, with only 22,000 soldiers, but they are deploye in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban and al Qaeda.

Perhaps they should be training in their winter whites! Click to enlarge.

I approve of her marksmanship, though it looks as though her weapon is slightly off zero. Click to enlarge.

That’s the dangerous end.
