They are very special blokes those Ghurkha's, I'm glad they are on our side. Never run away with the idea that most of them are short arse's, one fella I saw once had to be over 6 foot and built like a brick outhouse.
Look... I respect them for three reasons.
1. Never underestimate the little guy with a big smile and a big knife.
2. Never underestimate a guy with orders to bring back evidence of the kill... so they cut off the head.
3. If the British Army to this day has them in their armed forces and the Royal Marines and SAS even fear them.... I should fear them too.
I still think I can beat them by distractions.... because in a fight I'd be dead. At least if I can't beat them might as well join them in some drinking and ogling women in little to nothing beachwear.
Can the UK please set up a base in South Florida for the Ghurkha? If that won't work how about in Bermuda?
