"I thought before they kill me I have to kill some of them.”

Check out this guy:

Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday awarded Britain’s second-highest award for bravery, the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross, to Acting Sgt. Dipprasad Pun of the Royal Gurkha Rifles.

While stationed as a lone sentry at a checkpoint in Afghanistan’s Helmand province on September 17, Pun fended off an attack by up to 30 Taliban fighters.

“There were many Taliban around me,” Pun said in an interview with British Forces News. “I thought they are definitely going to kill me … I thought before they kill me I have to kill some of them.”

He did:

It’s highly likely that Dip did:

During the 15-minute battle, Pun fired more than 400 rounds of ammunition, detonated 17 grenades and a mine and even threw his gun tripod at a Taliban fighter climbing toward his position, according to British Forces News.

Dip, as the medal citation names him, saved the lives of three fellow soldiers and avoided any injury himself:

“That he survived unscathed is simply incredible,” his medal citation says. “Throughout Dip’s actions he was under almost constant intense fire. Dip’s courage and gallantry were simply astonishing.”

Australia has a significant Nepalese population. Let’s get this Taliban-smashing Nepali hero out here for a celebration tour.


A very long war (Bolt)

Did we think that 10 years after going into Afghanistan, we’d still be losing soldiers there?

A 23-year-old Australian soldier has been killed in Afghanistan overnight, taking to 27 the number of Australians killed.

  1. The Taliban must have come out from hiding behind women and children that day. Well done Dip, we must not forget it’s not just white westerners who despise the Islamist scum. They are hated by billions of normal people on this planet, but it has not dawned on the Islamists and their apologists yet.

  2. Suck on that you mohammadan scumbags.

    I wonder if Dipprasad pulled his Kukri that would make them brave telley tubbies crap their nappies.

    Well done indeed.

  3. just imagine , if the SHTF , we could have “bonus packages” for islam demise of the day ! of course this would also include “extra points” for liberals , whiners, welfare zombies , politicians , alan colmes , and “ANYBODY” that rises against small government and continues to beg for social justice ! i would rather compensate a “soldier” who eliminates our enemies than provide for the enemies that “demand” compensation !
