How history gets written in other parts of the world -- and in India!!

Got the following in the mail!.. interesting stuff hence sharing it!

A 19 year old ex-cheerleader (now an Air Force Security Forces Sniper) was watching a road that led to a NATO military base when she observed a man digging by the road. She engaged the target, i.e., she shot him.

It turned out he was a bomb maker for the Taliban, and he was burying an IED that was to be detonated when a Canadian patrol walked by 30 minutes later. It would have certainly killed and wounded several soldiers.

The interesting fact of this story is the shot was measured at 725 yards! She shot him as he was bent over burying the bomb. The shot went through his butt and into the bomb, which detonated; he was blown to pieces.

The Air Force made a motivational poster of her!

That is Canada!!

If it had been an Indian Jawan, the following would be the aftermath.

1. J&K state declares hartal and violent demonstrations follow.

2. Civil Right Groups demand an enquiry.

3. Teesta Setalwad says the man was probably just answering nature's call and files a case against Modi accusing him of ordering the fire.

4. Painter Hussain will draw a bare butt to honour the slain victim. "The Hindu" will hail Hussain's freedom and artistry.

5. Barhka Dutt, Rajdeep Sardesai, Prannoy Roy and all other ‘intellectuals’ will debate for a week if it was correct to fire at the butt.

6. The Air Force sniper faces departmental enquiry and suspension.

7. Manmohan loses a night's sleep and declares a compensation of Rs. 10 lacs to the victim's family!!
