LONDON, UK—Beating hundreds of soldiers from major armies of the world,Pakistan Army has won the coveted Gold Award at the prestigious Cambrian Patrol Exercise held in Wales with participation from armies of India,Australia,Canada,United States and France among others.

750 soldiers from across the world descended on the Brecon Beacons in Wales to suffer through one of the toughest exercises ever devised. The Cambrian patrol tested the soldiering skills of the teams as they crossed some of the most arduous terrain one can imagine.

During the marches, the teams had to complete challenges including observation and reconnaissance of enemy forces, cold-river crossings in full kit without access to boats, first-aid and defensive shooting under attack.

The exercise is organized by the British Army [HQ 160(W) Brigade on behalf of HQ 5 Div] with an aim to provide a challenging patrols exercise in order to develop operational capability. Cambrian Patrol is arduous and concentrates on leadership, teamwork, physical fitness and achieving the mission by drawing participants from foreign countries.

    Must you always be “kabaab mein haddi”?

    Are you not overdoing your “arabic religion” routine?

    I know hundreds of Indians, but none like you. You are a typical 78 rpm record stuck in one grove!

    I wish the Pakistan Army similar success in their war against the militant mullaism of Pakistan.

  3. Hola

    Yep,
    I have to agree that the Pak army is very brave.

    @Due,

    With all “due” respect, I really dont think the award has anything to do with arabic religion, the competing team must have been very fine soldiers. That’s all!

    Regards.

    @Due,
    What stupid remark you have made about Arabic Religion?What it got to do with religion?
    Don’t forget Pakistan is an Islamic State as defined by the constitution and so Army is an army of Islamic State and not an army of Islam,so it shows how ignorant and fool you are.

  6. In the time of my older friends ( seventy-year-olds ) retired from the Pakistan Armored Officer Corps (Cavalry regiments), they, along with other Pakistanis, often came first or scored high in American military training courses. This shows that they have not lost their competitive edge.

    As in Cricket, nations with strong domestic structure have strong International players….same applies here….

    Who actually did the patrolling? Pakistan army rank and file or Pakistani generals?

    No person in his senses would accuse the rank and file of the Pakistani army of being weak. It’s the generals who run cornflakes factories and sewerage departments and hobnob with arms salesmen who are Pakistan’s problem.

    The Pakistan army should ideally fight for the good of the Pakistani people. They are currently fighting for the wealth and status of the Pakistan army generals.

    so! Just couldn’t digest it could you?🙂

    pray tell us: are you a natural born [EDITED] or did you have to practice?

    It’s almost as if Von Clauswitz forced himself on Lidart Hart and the result of that grotesque union produced a pitiful being with all of their well deserved ego but none of the intellect.

  10. YLH

    Well I am glad the media didn’t mention this story as proud as I am of these boys.

    We can’t have more glorification of Pakistan military with simultaneous abuse of democracy.

    Probyn,

    I ain’t so sure about Shiv’s indigestion problems, but it is you who seem to be suffering from an acute case of verbal diarrhoea !

    @hola

    sweet child. Go and look up who is Von clauswitz and liddle hart.
    Once you find out please go crawl back into Bharat rakshak and tell the others
    now won’t you? That’s a good lad now.

    This is an excellent achievement. Our army has always made us proud.

  15. Rabia Ijaz

    This is something for Pakistan to be proud of, our army is surely one of the best and it deserves all the support from citizens.

  16. Amir Liaquat

    This proves that our army has the capability of destroying the militants in any sort of terrain. I wish them best of luck in the future to make us proud as citizens.

  17. Natasha

    The news was there on some channel. Geo most probably.

    Well done!

    Well done jawans! A jolt out of Slackistan for the rest of us.

    You guys are a hoot! The comments on this forum are as interesting as the “Post”! Dang! I would just love to be over there and sit in one of your tea houses and join your arguments! I’m tired of American politics! Boring!

    Shiv: are you for once declaring Indian Generals and various commanders are absolutely honest souls?? They are some of the MOST CORRUPTED OFFICERS IN THE WORLD. Billions are spent and millions are pocketed.

    Unfortunate but true right from 1960’s…System is rotten. Amazing still functions though

  23. faraz

    Ya good on papers. In practice, our army lost all wars it ever fought including that of 1965. But we must congratulate the extremely efficient propaganda machine of the army that the nation celebrates defence day for a war that it actually lost. Winning conventional wars demands a higher level of professionalism and skill; our army should start by clearing FATA of its own strategic assets.

  24. @faraz

    Well said; couldn’t agree with you more!

    Besides clearing the ”stetegic assets” our army should also wind up its business empire. That will give it the time and resources to become more professional and less dependent on USA.

  25. Ahmed

    I really don’t put much trust in these so-called “competitions” to rate the armies of nations. There really isn’t an “objective” test that can rate something as complex as a fighting force. And, it serves to perpetuate a false aura around an army that has ultimately dragged this nation into a ditch.

    I will just say that our army basically instigated four wars against India, and either outright lost the war or had to have external intervention to stop the war when India had the upper hand. (Read unbiased third-party views of these wars. Not the Pak press.) Not a good track record.

    Now, lets stop glorifying what is basically a mediocre record and move on to other things.

    Well done Pakistan Army ! The true test of your toughness, however, lies in your ability to neutralize and demolish the mafia of militant outfits, the outfits that today hold Pakistan hostage.

  27. amar

    Pakistani army excels in hating hindus and everything hindu. That is their only “education” and “excellence”. Take this hate away and they are incapable of doing the most fundamental things. They are just another land-grabber exploiter army. The ordinary soldier’s ferocity is of good use only if the top command of the army is decent, humanist, honest and well-cultured.

  28. Bin Ismail

    @amar (October 25, 2010 at 4:54 pm)

    “…..Pakistani army excels in hating hindus and everything hindu…..”

    Are you in any way suggesting that the prestigious Exercise Cambrian Patrol is an annual Hindu-hating exercise?

  29. amar

    to bin ismail

    Hate is easy to inject into someone – but then nearly impossible to get out of him again. The pakistani soldier is a misused soldier (the rank and file). The hindu-hating exercise becomes an inner program. It seeps down into the psyche. It is either like a hepatitis virus lying dormant or working in depth. About syphillis it is said that the symptoms disappear after some time and the person thinks he is cured. He is not. The germ strikes suddenly anytime and the person remains infectious. The hate-hindu upbringing that is the staple of pakistani education and history-writing is something similar. Ultimately the syphillis destroys the person’s brain.

    If Pakistan wants to become a good nation then better send these soldiers to some rehabilitation (may be in India?) than to any cambrian or pre-cambrian exercise (in the former colonial master).

    Soldiers, judges, school teachers, police, media men etc. in Pakistan have so deeply imbibed of this fountain of hindu-hate (and arab love) that your question becomes only a rhetoric attempt that sidetracks the real issue and the bleeding wound.

    @ amar (October 28, 2010 at 8:16 pm)

    “…..your question becomes only a rhetoric attempt that sidetracks the real issue…..”

    The “real issue” here, my friend is “Pakistani Military Wins Gold Medal For Toughness” and I assure you that the success of the Pakistan Army in the prestigious annual competition of the Cambrian Patrol has absolutely nothing to do with “Hindu-hating”.

  31. amar

    to bin ismail

    Everything that the pak army does has to do with hindu hating. The toughness of the pak army is also reserved for killing hindus (like the random sudden shootings from across the border). Why does the pak army have to tell its soldiers that the bad taliban are agents of the hindus? Otherwise the pakistani soldiers will fraternize with the taliban. No toughness of pak soldier without an injection of hindu hate. This has now become so internalized (from the C-in-C to the foot-soldier) that it often need not be done explicitly. Afterall Pakistan was founded thus.

  32. Probyn

    Amar spaketh thus:

    ‘Afterall Pakistan was founded thus.’

    can someone give this chap a history book in suppository form?

  33. Prasad

    Probyn its not entirely incorrect….for instance, the muslim ummah doesnot recognise regional armies…in the sense, a ‘true’ muslim cannot fight another muslim, devoid of national boundaries….It is indeed true and therefore SWAT became a problem…it was just due to some stubborn action by the top brass on discipline that the region was somewhat regained from terrorists isnt it???

    Well no one can deny Pakistan was founded on a platform of religion/division…what are you cribbing on??? Had Jinnah not decimated the subcontinent, you wouldnt have 3 countries but fine single country with border from gulf to SEA and with enormous influence in the region!!!

  34. Back to the Congress and the One Nation Theory, in spite of all the evidence to the contrary.

    We progress in these dialogues; soon we will reach the 30s of the last century.

    * “…..Everything that the pak army does has to do with hindu hating…..”

    These days the Pakistan Army is rendering invaluable services in the field of humanitarian relief, providing help of all kinds to the victims of the recent floods in Pakistan. The Pakistan Army is currently also engaged in neutralizing the various terrorist organizations operating in Pakistan. Contingents of the Pakistan Army are known to have rendered commendable services as UN Peace-keeping forces, under UN auspices. You would agree with me that none of these operations is inspired by any sentiments of hatred. The present exercise, the Cambrian Patrol, happens to be a test of proficiency for any professional army. This is neither a test of love nor hatred. It is simply a test of acquired skills in border patrol and of discipline.

    @Vajra (October 31, 2010 at 1:02 am)

    * “…..Back to the Congress and the One Nation Theory, in spite of all the evidence to the contrary…..”

    We should all be grateful that the Cambrian Patrol news has not taken us back to Genesis 1:1 [In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth].

    @Prasad (October 30, 2010 at 11:51 pm)

    * “…..the muslim ummah does not recognise regional armies…in the sense, a ‘true’ muslim cannot fight another muslim, devoid of national boundaries…..”

    The “Muslim Ummah” is a religious entity, not a political one. Politically speaking, you can have Muslim-majority countries, existing obviously as political entities and defined by political boundaries. It is not the congregation of Muslim-majority countries that constitutes the Muslim Ummah. The Muslim Ummah is a collective noun applied to all Muslim individuals, living all over the world.

    It should also be appreciated that the army of a Muslim-majority country is an organization of that state, not a wing of the Ummah.

    * “…..therefore SWAT became a problem…..”

    Swat became a problem when the militant mullahs literally occupied Swat. This occupation was done by force. It was nothing short of High Treason and Rebellion against the state.

    * “…..Well no one can deny Pakistan was founded on a platform of religion/division…..”

    Jinnah believed the the Muslim-majority states of India could cluster together, on a “politico-economic platform” and form a political sub-federation, within India, in order to autonomously pursue a secure political and economic future for these states. He believed that this would give greater leg-room for economic progress to the Muslim-majority states. However, when the Cabinet Mission Plan, which was endorsed by Jinnah, could not get a similar approval from the Congress leadership, the only other way forward, pursuing this rightful goal, was to establish a separate state, comprising of the Muslim-majority states. But the platform, may I reiterate, was most certainly a politico-economic one.
