The knives that the Gurkha's carry. I'm fascinated by this legendary edged weapon.

During WW2 my dad was stationed up in the Alps in Italy and I can remember him talking about them and their knives. There must have been some of them stationed there also.

I don't get it (after reading the story about the Gurkha in Asscrackistan), The trash bag Muslim Taliban can behead a non Muslim and only we get upset, but if we (the Gurkha on our side) behead a Muslim Taliban everybody on both sides gets offended. It's WAR, I thought you were supposed to offend your enemy (along with breaking things and hurting people) into surrendering to your will.Head in a Box
If burying the entire body is so important to them, then why are there suicide bombersLoco

Thats typicall of the British Goverment, come down on the guy for doing the job they tell him to do.
 
I read a story in a British magazine, off a guy who had to lock up the bar at a rowing club. While he was locking the door three guys attacked him with baseball bats, so they could rob him off the money he had to go put in the bank the next morning. Well he defended the himself by taking one off the bats of a the would be robbers, and gave them a good beat down. When the police came they Arrested him for assault, and threw him in the police van with the three would be robbers.
 
Go figure that out.

I walked into the office one day.  All the gals were in PMS +P mode.  They all turned to look at me and gave the "The Look."  I wisely said: " I'm a man, it's my fault... What did I do?"  The the office manager said "SEE -HE- understands..." 
 
WE are wrong, not that what we did is wrong... But they sure as heck are not going to take the blame.Mouth Taped Shut
