...perhaps the best-known thing about the Gurkhas is the kukri -their combat-knife: a ferocious implement and once unsheathed, it has to have blood. There's a bit of hype in that; but it's largely true and this reputation was one of the reasons the Gurkhas were so successful in combating the Japanese. Not every Jap was a kamikaze; but every Gurkha wa a "me or you" soldier.

Nod they came down to help out in E.Timor, and scare up the militias some.
Out of curiosity, has anyone read any books by ex-delta members? I've read a few by ex-sas types, and they all seem to be rather dismissive of the US SF. Nice guys and all, but not up to SAS standards. Was wondering what the general view of SAS from delta is?
It seems the large difference between the 2 is sas is much more trained to operate independently. I think in the first gulf war the SAS spent a lot more time in iraq than USSF did eh?

PS, I am very interested in the new NATO/former WARSAW East European SF teams that apparently took part in the war in Iraq. Anyone have any info on them? (Czech, Hungarian, Polish, ect?)

Advisor, in a remote part of Afghanistan an Aussie SAS trooper was killed by a landmine when his Landrover ran over it. The US parachuted in 3 medics and 2(?) combat surgeons to try and save him. Is this PARARESCUE ?
