Tanks, troops, jets: NATO countries launch full-scale war games in Baltic — RT News: Russia is also having war games because NATO wants a Cold War again. Sadly. And we will get what we demand. The above picture is a bunch of troops on parade. They look pathetic. The obsession with camo pajamas has virtually destroyed military pride. Who can be proud dressed in this ugly fashion? This is the ‘look like a mud wall or pile of trash’ military philosophy which is why occupying countries is a failure. Who respects someone who looks like garbage? No one, of course.
End The War in Iraq more soldiers shows a typical scene from Iraq, a massive failure. Today, in Iraq, Al-Qaeda in Iraq Seizes Government HQ in Mosul thanks to the US arming al Qaeda all over again in Syria and Libya. Three Iraqi Kurd Party Offices Bombed in Two Days, 63 Killed and typically, Northern Iraq Under Siege: 123 Killed, 261 Wounded as hundreds die daily there. Syria Rebel General: US Arms Creating Warlords which is 100% true. Pakistanis Fear Worst Is Yet to Come After Airport Attack by Taliban destroys planes and buildings.
The US patrol of Iraq was a howling failure and this photo shows one element of this failure: the ridiculous way our troops looked.
Yes, they have lethal weapons. But they are way overburdened with junk and look sad sack to boot. Lucas Films has this right:
If these Jedi Knights showed up wearing camo pajamas, no one would be amazed, they would laugh at them. I would also suggest this should have been the uniforms worn by our Afghan troops. Then, the Taliban would at least felt they were honorable fighters and not mud walls.
The US military spends billions on mud uniforms and are never happy with any of these and keeps tinkering with the artistic rendition of mud and twigs hoping to find the perfect pajama look: US Army Selects Scorpion Camouflage Pattern – UPDATED – Soldier Systems Daily

Is this standard Scorpion, or a pixelated version? And will there be woodland/desert variations?

Standard. No variants.
U.S. Army Scorpion Camouflage shows these pathetic uniforms. I will note above that the sad sacks of NATO on parade are not even wearing belts which makes them look more like bag ladies than soldiers on parade. And they don’t look proud, either. Here are some Russian troops on parade last month:
They are wearing common camo, not the weird computer-generated designs the US is addicted to so it doesn’t look so ‘sloppy’ and the design isn’t a pajamas style, it has better tailoring of the collar, sleeves, pockets, etc. and they get to wear belts, damn it! Looks much spiffier. And the soldiers know this. Our troops look increasingly bedraggled and the history of military uniforms is clear: you look like crap, you are viewed as crappy. Especially when trying to impress people.
