    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    My favourite Gurkha story comes from the Falklands war. The British troops were at the time equipped with semi-automatic rifles and badly made boots.

    Therefore, whenever possible they would take the boots and automatic rifles off dead Argentine soldiers.

    The Gurkhas had a policy of sneaking into camps in the middle of the night and identifying sleeping soldiers by feeling the soles of their boots.

    British made boots? Friendly.

    Argentine boots? Out with the Kukri and off with their head.

    Suffice it to say, when this became common knowledge amongst British squaddies, the practice of removing boots from the Argentine dead faded out fast.

    Really?
    What a load of bollocks, are you really dumb enough to believe that?
    Really?

    British Troops in action anywhere post sentries.
    Gurkha troops would know the location of other British units.
    If they were attacking a camp the first thing they do would be take out the sentries, which they would not because they would see they were Brits.
    What a mong post you made.

    'i've seen a marine rape a polarbear once!'

    gurkhas are little small men, i bet they're not so tough.
    I wonder what they taste like.
    Is it legal to eat one?

    Nice story, and, I met some Gurkhas as a Marine, I admired them. To the writer: the USA does not have a Congressional Medal of Honor, we only have a Medal of Honor. Congress is not in the official name, and sadly, has no honor themselves. If they did, they would perform as well as the military of the USA.

    So the gurkha is in trouble for offending Muslim culture...
    For beheading a terrorist? Seems logical that only extremists would take offense. Me personally, when I see fundamentalist of my religion gone (not necessarily dead) I'm fairly happy.
    Be careful guys, we don't want to offend terrorists. the might blow something up.
    Oh wait...

    The band of about 40 robbers, some of whom were travelling as passengers, stopped the train in the Chittaranjan jungles in West Bengal around midnight. Shrestha-- who had boarded the train at Ranchi in Jharkhand, the place of his posting--was in seat no. 47 in coach AC3.

    “They started snatching jewelry, cell phones, cash, laptops and other belongings from the passengers,” Shrestha recalled. The soldier had somehow remained a silent spectator amidst the melee, but not for long. He had had enough when the robbers stripped an 18-year-old girl sitting next to him and tried to rape her right in front of her parents. He then took out his khukuri and took on the robbers.

    40 men armed with knives, swords and guns stormed the train and began robbing the passengers.
    Bishnu kept his peace while the gang snatched cell phones, jewelry and cash from other riders. But then, the thugs grabbed the 18 year-old girl sitting next to him and forcefully stripped her naked. Before the bandits could rape the poor girl in front of her helpless parents, Bishnu decided he had enough.
    "The girl cried for help, saying ´You are a soldier, please save a sister´," Shrestha recalled. "I prevented her from being raped, thinking of her as my own sister."
    Here's the part of the story that makes you cheer. He pulls out a kukri (i.e. a knife) and proceeds to kill 3 of them, injure 8 of them, and causes the rest to flee. During the battle, he suffered a severe knife injury to his left hand, from which he's now recovered.

    Why big budget?
    You just hire an 18 year old actress, or one that looks 18 years old and the 40 guys who'' bang her do it for free.
    41 hiv tests, one or two cameramen, director, sound...this can be done for 40 000 dollars.
