Big friggin deal ! Why could'nt the military keep their mouth shut about this, granted "we" are supposed to be better than "them" but, its the Taliban, how much mercy or compassion have they shown to NATO troops ? Good on the Gurkhas, they shoud've tossed it later on so that there would be no proper burial for one less scumbag.

They really are very professional soldiers and worthy of admiration.

Only that it gave me much grace in footnote

Kill me laugh when I read this tremendous stupidity

 

 

By the time they arrived on Mount Tumbledown, the Argentinians had seen pictures

of Gurkhas sharpening their kukris and read all these stories about them eating their prisoners,'

says Major Corrigan. 'So when the Gurkhas actually appeared, all they found were empty trenches.'

They were the first to die when British commanders sent them to the 'hard' positions of Argentine Army

Good on the Gorkhas. Pigs like the Taliban deserve such beheadings.

The Indian Army has a regiment and these guys are known for their bravery and valour. They have won battle honours in all the wars India has fought. The sight of the Khukri is enough to strike fear into enemy's heart. There are instances where Gurkha soldiers have jumped into enemy trenches and killed enemy soldiers with their Khukris after their ammo ran out..

The funny part to me was that the article stated that the act of severing the head offended Afghans on all sides of the conflict as it is at odds with Muslim burial practice.... HMMMM....wait a second there does any one else see a bit of hypocrisy in that statement. Seems like there is a long colorful tradition of head severing by the Mujahedeen if my memory serves me right. One minute Mujahedeen warriors gleefuly post videos of the horrific murders of folks like Nick Berg and Eugene Armstrong on the internet and the next they wine that This soldier has commited an un forgivable insult to the great religion of peace by cutting the head of a warlords corpse to prove he is truly dead.

 

It seems to me that the head and the torso can be reunited. If I had my way there would be an emergency meeting in every town in Afghanistan, the question should be raised as to who has irreconcilable religious issues with the incident. those folks should then be sat down and shown the footage of the Mujahedeen beheading innocents in Iraq or the Taliban doing it in Pakistan . Again the hypocrisy of these F***s is beyond the pale their mentality is - we will do what ever we wish to you ... no mater how vile. But with righteous indignation how dare you do that to us!!!!!

Apologies to all correct thinking types... as this got me mildly annoyed...

I am a liberal and have been all my life because I know what the word means. I also spent 24yrs. in two branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and 2 tours in SE. I almost never post here because of the way the word liberal is used, as almost a slur. I feel as most of you don't want to hear what a liberal have to say and wouldn't even try to understand. That means the two sides are no longer talking and trying to understand each others point of view and that is never good

The please do post more often, you can make a difference to that scenario if sides aren't talking it takes two sides to have a conversation, regardless of who started, what started, numerical numbers and so on, no one should feel unwelcome here so long as everyone respects the forum rules and keep it to discussing and not sniping which is 99.99999% of all the threads here for a long time now.

 

About the term liberal being miss represented, it's not just true about that side of the spectrum. How many times have you heard terms like conservative, neo-con and so on bandied about as if they are the worst insults ever? I was castigated by my peers in the teaching profession for being, apparently, a "neo-con" and a "Zionist", which by their twisted definition meant that I hate anyone non Christian (except Jews in their warped fantasy) and wish for a New World Order dominated by the rich white middle class (which is the correct definition of those throwing the insults at me btw), that I supported race subordination tantamount to slavery and on and on with their ridiculous libels, all of it highly offensive and hurtful especially given that I was and still am on some issues, somewhat of a socialist, a fierce defender of individual freedoms irrespective of gender, race and so on. (Can you tell I'm still sore about this? lol.gif)

 

My point is.. if your label of choice is getting misrepresented, don't take it too personally, man up, grow a thicker skin, and communicate! It's no good feeling ill about it if you don't try and show people what you're really about. Your rep, your responsibility. That's not meant too harsh btw just saying there's room for more than one perspective here, and libs aren't pariahs here, you even have a leader in the form of Eraser, maybe you both should come in the Arena more often and join in there, probably better for that sort of thing.

 

Back on topic.. Raaaaaa! Good Job Gorkhas! The body parts were dead before they were removed so it was more of an amputation, they should be praised for the skill with which they removed the diseased tissue from the rest of the body, Taleb brains contain a highly contagious virus so the correct procedure would be incineration with extreme prejudice. This is nothing compared to the barbarous way the extremists behead "infidels" alive and fully conscious, it doesn't bear thinking about the hypocrisy here, absolutely scandalous.

But for the Ghurka's I probably would not exist.

In 1945 my mother, 2 brothers and sister were in a Japanese prison camp at Banju Biru near Ambarawa in Java. The war had ended and the Indonesian fight for freedom had started. The camps, full of women and children in bad condition after 3 years of Imperial Japanese hospitality (read starvation and brutality), were fired upon by the Nationalists with machine guns, mortars and artillery (illegally supplied to them by the Japanese)

There were just 14 Ghurka's to protect a couple of thousands Europeans. After another session of bullets and grenades, 10 of the Ghurka's left and returned after some hours. No more fire was recieved from a couple of "kampongs" (villages) and things were very quit for the next 14 days or so.......... After that the camps were succesfully evacuated to Semarang during a running battle including the use of tanks and air support by P 47's. What happened in the Semarang - Ambarawa area is an amazing story, where loyal Japanese batallions fought ALONGSIDE the British against the Indonesians. Thousands were killed, yes, after the war had ended . The Ghurka's played an important role.

My mother always had the highest respect for the Ghurka's and firmly believed she would have been killed without their protection...:salute: ...

As for the action in Afghanistan: probably not the smartest thing to do, but I fully understand it. !!!!

 

Hou doe,

The word liberal means one who supports one strong central goverment. I don't know or care how other people use or think,when the word is said. I support a strong central goverment, the kingdom of God and this is what I think of when I hear the word. If it hadn't been for your sniping I would not spoke up. It shows what I meant about the two sides not talking. It was real nice of you to tell me to man up. "How many times have you heard terms like conservative, neo-con and so on bandied about as if they are the worst insults ever?," never because after my time in service I started work in Law Enforcement three yrs into this I was shotup in a gun battle with 2 killers, now I am homebound sitting in a wheel chair. bty one I killed and the other is coming up for parole. I never castigated you for anything, but you attack me because I thought you hated all liberals and dared to say so and I still think so. I tried to give another perspective but you did not want to hear it. " you even have a leader in the form of Eraser." I have no leader but God and his son JESUS. I assume the fourms are here help the players of TK's game, it doesn't anyone any good to run people off with hate talk from either side, our goal should help TK sell games and make money. I am sorry that I ever posted in the first place. If I have said anything to offend you I am truly sorry. I am sure that me not buying any more if tk games it will be no biggie to him but as you said "Your rep, your responsibility" so I think I think I will find a place of like minded people and play other games. Maybe one you can play all by myself.

Cool those boots man! I never sniped you, my aim was to encourage you to come join in and share your views instead of just stating your perception that you are somehow disenfranchised without even trying to engage in some kind of discourse, maybe my encouragement was a little slap on the back too much with the man up but if you take offence so easily then you really do need to man up. Being all offended does not make you a victim of some perceived attack, I'm genuinely sorry to hear about your circumstances and you can see I obviously had no idea what happened to you so was never my intention to rake up any trauma or anything but I still don't get how exactly any of that makes it less clear for you to understand that any and all sides can be misrepresented, that it isn't just libs that get beat up on, it happens the other way round too and being in a wheelchair does not make any difference to that, I treat people fair and square equal so the point remains as far as I'm concerned, circumstances or not it is not just your viewpoint that is misrepresented in this world.

 

You didn't castigate me, until you just did then with that rant about assuming I now hate all liberals

..but you attack me because I thought you hated all liberals and dared to say so and I still think so
well think what you like, but I can assure you I don't hate all liberals! In fact J.S. Mill was one of all time favourite reads, as for not wanting to hear your perspective... I'm the damn fool who encouraged you to share it in the first place!

 

While this particular conversation between you and I is done, I bear no ill will towards you and still encourage you to engage in future discourse on these forums, rest assured there won't be any sniping from me and if there was I should hope I'd receive a kick in the backside from the mods. In short, think first, read and re read where necessary before you assume someone's having a go at you because just maybe, they were trying to give you a helping hand.

 

As for your future purchases, that's between you and yours, none of my business.
