The upshot, according to David Pryce-Jones? Not so funny. From NRO:
Gurkha battalions have British officers, and they are among the best in the army, too. One of them was Major James Bowman. A renegade Afghan policeman entered the Gurkha barracks and shot Major Bowman dead in his sleep. Now we learn that, at the same time, the Gurkhas were in action in Helmand, in pursuit of a top Taliban commander. Under heavy fire, they killed him. Orders were to establish the commander’s identity. It was too dangerous to drag him out while still engaged with the Taliban, so a Gurkha cut his head off with his kukri. Quick thinking, you may say.
This man ought to be promoted. Instead, he has been recalled to Britain and may face court-martial and jail. The foolish paper-shufflers are at it again. The story goes that by cutting off the commander’s head, the Gurkha has offended Muslims, on the grounds that their custom is to bury bodies whole.
This is dhimmitude self-imposed. Who gives a fuzzy white rat’s bottom if Muslims are offended? If they wish to not be offended, let them stop murdering our men.
As for the twits in England, get your heads out from your own behinds and remember that you are at war with those who would kill or convert you to Islam. Apparently the powers-that-be in England are just fine with that.
