The rebels behead government troops and they get to call THEM thugs?

Yeah, the British have forgotten the origin of the word “Thug”...

Sad how those who have forgotten history are doomed to experience it again or ignore it now..

... also known as tuggee refers to the acts of thugs, an organized gang of professional assassins. The Thugs travelled in groups across India for several hundred years. They were devoted to Kali, a Hindu goddess associated with violence, sexuality, and more recently, empowerment.[1]

Interesting - thanks for the link.
