I wasn't sure if this belonged here or in the MNS forum, or in the Lounge.  It is the Taliban, so it went here.

Check out the Taliban’s new punk rock uniforms

The Pakistani Taliban debuted a new get-up in a recent propaganda video.

The Pakistani Taliban has debuted a new uniform that combines decades of punk rock, splashes of Gwen Stefani — and a dash of dominatrix.

Flawlessly blending a combination of camo pants, black shirts, fingerless leather gloves and a total disregard for parental authority, the Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) strutted their stuff in a new training video featuring rocket-propelled grenades, white board instruction and standing around in mid-”La Macarena” poses.

There’s no official word yet on the meaning behind “No Tension,” but if it’s a band name as we assume, it sounds rad.

By tucking camo pants into knee-high white socks, TTP fighters now have greater aerodynamic maneuverability when firing RPGs, as well as the added flexibility required to break into an impromptu mosh-kick whenever No Doubt’s “Just a Girl” blares from the speakers of a gun-mounted Toyota pickup.

Looking at that picture, I imagined them then breaking out into a girly dance to 'Single Ladies' or 'Just a Girl'!
