It's the collar. They have to show a lot of cleavage. This is a dress uniform, as far as I am aware.

Edit: It's the dress uniform of the Spanish Foreign Legion.

That has nothing to do with military, every time a politician (especially a nationalist politician) has major problem in Spain he/she starts a squeal about Gibraltar. In this case it was the Prime Minister accused of corruption.

It was pretty much what prompted Galtieri to have a go at Las Islas Malvinas* in '82; Thatch (pbuh) announced enormous cuts in the Navy; presto, the good General thought this was just his opportunity. History does, as we all know, have a habit of going round and round and round.

they may not have achieved any significant military successes since .... well, I'll get back to you on that, but you've gotta admit, that's a hot look

with a slight difference, the Spaniards might close the border (and get kicked in the **** by Brussels to open it again) but certainly will not start a fight over the hunk of rock. It is simply not worth it.

So what if they close the boarder?

The UK has mostly soldiers and government employees there. If the boarder closes Spain will loose out on all the goods they sell to Gibraltar and around 10,000 Spanish citizens loose their jobs. If they try to invade, they get flattened in about 10 minutes and the UN places sanctions on them as the aggressor.

If they close the Border, the EU will say that they might perhaps be able to organise a Commission in maybe a couple of months time, who might perhaps come to a conclusion in about six months, and that conclusion would be that they do not see that Spain is doing anything wrong.

There is no commission in that case, it would be a violation of the treaty and (just as happened to Austria a  few years back due to an anti-foreigner campaign) they would be suspended immediately.until the situation is corrected.
