The control system


Yet it also

On November 18, I was the first journalist allowed to see and remove one of the remote outposts base. Why is not the place name? Because the survey was made on the condition of non-disclosure of the location of the gates, even though, in principle, recognized that its location has long been nothing secret there. Well, there is no way.

Also, I was not allowed to take any room from the outside, but inside. Why do so - the great mystery of being. A visual signal to the outside shooting given only in respect of units of soldiers engaged in tactics, and then only for close-ups.
