Its worth remembering at this point we had Muslims from Afghanistan and Iraq working alongside the British army as interpreters, taking much the same risks. And then, when they pointed out, not unreasonably, they might be targets for retaliation, we told them to foxtrot oscar because they werent our problem.
I digress, but you get the point. The British Army working with Muslims is not a new issue.
Folks who stick their necks out for you should be rewarded and protected. The US made space for a lot of Hmong who fled Vietnam. There were MANY more we should have rescued.
Ryan, I absolutely agree. There were even right wingers here (probably Tommy Flowers pals) whining about allowing Nepalese into the country. Nepalese whom actually fought in the Gurkha's.
We are a singularly ungrateful nation it has to be said.
