acr1The Czech Armed Forces (Armáda České republiky or AČR) represent an example of a fast-paced organizational and technological modernization in the framework of modern security issues. Their development is dictated by a drastic and rapid transfer from former Soviet integrations into Euro-Atlantic ones. Infantry as the main component of modern military operations is the key factor within the modernization process and therefore the subject of this discussion. It has transformed from a heavy mechanized force into a smaller mobile expeditionary force engaged in military (peace support) operations abroad.1

kenija-slika1Zibelka civilizacije, oaza miru sredi nemirne regije, čudovita narava in živalski svet, prijazni domačini – to je le nekaj oznak, ki kažejo svetlo plat te vzhodnoafriške države. Vendar ji kazalniki temne strani – AIDS, revščina, brezposelnost, korupcija –, ki težijo celotno črno celino, niso prizanesli. Slednjim se posvečajo slovenske odprave zdravstvenikov, a več o tem naslednjič.
