#Thread #Fil | Ce matin, je voudrais mettre à l'heure quelques pendules au sujet des combattant afghans. Trop de réactions dans ma TL sont en totale contradiction avec les témoignages que m'ont livrés des militaires occidentaux qui les ont côtoyés et/ou affrontés.
Quand on détaille les pertes des forces spéciales afghanes à #Ghazni, une réaction classique du lecteur est de déplorer que les instructeurs occidentaux aient formé des guignols incapables de résister à une action offensive déterminée des taliban. Ce tropisme est catastrophique.
Déjà, je fais aimablement remarquer que de tels problèmes sont ataviques dans tous les pays où celui qui se voit en homme blanc avec intentions pacifiques est venu apprendre à homme en voie de développement bien gentil mais un peu con à se curer le nez sans se crever l'oeil.

The first contribution of Brahmins to the #Hindu National Pride was this #Brahmin ‘s reply to the 1st known foreign invaders, the Greeks(they called him ‘Dandamis’) on being threatened to be beheaded on his refusal to meet Alexander.
“Alexander has’nt yet seen other bank of Vyas
If he successfully faces brave🇮🇳states beyond & yonder still
the powerful empire of Magadh,
yet remain alive,I shall consider.
He may behead me but can’t kill my soul”

Plutarch gives full text of this #Brahmin ‘s fearless reply
Alexander realized, #Brahmins exerted powerful influences upon the governments of🇮🇳Republics,
that tongues of these fearless Brahmins were sharper than Khatriya swords.

Before beheading one he asked,
why he instigated a certain-ruler against him & came the reply👇🏻
