Real War Heros


EIGHTY heroes who served their country with distinction overseas will have their bravery and devotion to duty recognised today.
The latest round of operational honours include a sergeant who carried on firing with his good arm after being shot and a Gurkha who saved an American officer.


"The Massachusetts senator, who has said he would have voted to give Bush the authority to use force if necessary against Iraq even if he had known at the time that Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction, has struggled to draw clear contrasts with the president.Nor did Kerry stop there. He called the contributions of allies such as Britain, Italy, Poland, and South Korea "the phoniest thing I've ever heard," saying that they had "500 troops here and 500 troops there," despite these countries having thousands of troops -- especially Britain, which stations tens of thousands in Iraq and had 40,000 at the beginning of the war fighting alongside America"

So CSgt Limbu MC is just another of the mere 500 or so troops that Kerry claims the UK has helping in the War on Terror.......
