Gurkha Hero Defeats 30 Taliban Fighters

A lone Gurkha fought off an attack by 30 Taliban fanatics with just a chunk of metal and a sandbag after running out of ammunition. Sergeant Dipprasad Pun, 31, facing a surprise attack at a Afghanistan checkpoint, used superhuman strength to hoist a 50lb machine gun off its mount to blast at the enemy. When they kept coming, he launched 17 gren More..ades and picked up an SA80 assault rifle, only for it to jam. Then he threw the machine gun’s metal tripod at his attackers, before fending them off with a sandbag while yelling in Nepali: “I will kill you!” With nothing left to hand, the exhausted hero finally managed to fire off a Claymore mine, and the blast sent the enemy scattering. Yesterday, Sgt Pun’s extraordinary courage in Helmand province earned him the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross at a special ceremony in London.

    Honors to him. One word: Bada$$, many in the uniformed services of our and our allies forces have met the measure and beyond of an enemy's human wave attack and paid dearly for it. The Marines of WWII/PTO, US, Helenic and Puerto-Rican Soldiers of Korea, The Australian "Guerilla Chasers" & Korean Marines of Vietnam and now the Gurkha's of The GWoT. Bring the pain to the enemy...
