There’s a man who wants to get ahead in the military…

By way of Say Uncle, we learn that a Gurkha private with the 1st Battalion, Royal Gurkha Rifles, is in a spot of trouble.

It seems that his unit was dispatched to take out a Taliban commander, and intelligence wanted proof that they had killed the right man. They accomplished the mission, but came under heavy fire. Rather than lugging back the entire body, our man used his kukri to remove the head. You know, a convenient travel package.

For some reason, this upset his superiors, and various other folks.

This is considered a gross insult to the Muslims of Afghanistan, who bury the entire body of their dead even if parts have to be retrieved.

I have this to say on the subject:

Tiny violin. Let me play it for you.
