I actually asked someone to check up on the medal rolls of a possible ancestor called 'Richard. Longworth' who got a Silver service medal dated 1841. Or was it later...
Anyway his American namesake has written a book on the Afghan wars, and is probably well versed. (Not read by me).
I heard about the illustrious Ghurka who fought of a whole 'army' today.
This reminded me of the 'History' of the Afghan Conflicts that I researched a while back.
Mustah 'have' Bin (That Medal)... I was Laden with.
(I do think family history is important).
Invading someone else's territory is not polite. It's not politically correct.
If The Afghani Nation want to protect their turf, just make sure they can't get out....
A perimiter is just as an effective siege as a direct assult, and far more congenial.
Internally the Afghani's are culpable of ruling their kingdom however they like.
If you are born into an Afghani household, you are destined to be there.
Destiny is a powerful Adversary.
Never mess with a Woman who knows her mind,
it's like being bitten by a venom that has no cure but offers an immediate knife to slice away the smitten flesh.
If there is a swelling of opinion that the Afghani Nation can bring their incredible tenacity and ground skills into Nato, and represent themselves without losing their Identity, I am 'up for it'.
Just make sure that the 'veil' is present in these discourses. It has benefit both for the 'Male and Femail Enuch'.
If in France, just pay the fine.
The illustrious Ghurka proved that 'Batleth's at Dawn' is an honourable discharge of one's ability to defend one's position,
even in another's territory, under the command of another countries political adjenda.
When 'God' discharges His dispensation, it is meet that we accept.
Perhaps then every Afghani 'Warrier' may consider himself (of) a 'Breed Apart' to His or Her fellow Afghani.
Yet not equal to a Man who has already accepted death with
'No Paradise' .
I would like everyone (warrier and politician) to read 'The Merchant of Venice', before setting off for his 'Pound of Flesh'.
Portia speaks for every Woman, even though She must disguise Herself to 'whit end' to acheive her ultimate aim.
