i don't agree at all that the army would make it public, if anything the top army officials try and keep as much secret as possible, hearts and minds and all that, doesn't do much for the troops out there if sensationalised stories get leaked to the press.

[QUOTE=BlueRabbit;633588]Apalled? The lad showed initiative! Gurkhas are awesome. They deserve our upmost respect. It's embarassing how our government has repeatedly shit on Gurkha veterans.QUOTE]
Un-real isn't it! The fact they even question a Gurkha's right to live in this country is a fucking scandal and makes me ashamed.
Again the latest incident in Babaji with the Ghurka's from the articles I have read have not had any spin on them, just the fact that a Ghurka beheaded a Taliban Warlord and our paper pushers weren't right happy about it.
I don't think he was wrong but things like that will affect hearts and minds campaigns with the Afghan people.
