Reward this woman

Normally I get sick and tired of all sorts of women and assorted ethnic minorities grumbling over perceived discrimination that they receive but this story made me think otherwise.

Rabia Siddique helped a male officer rescue two SAS men from an Iraqi mob.

He got an MC. She got a hug and when she complained she got a worse job than she had. As far as I am concerned her complaint was legitimate and she should have been rewarded for her bravery not treated like a child.

She should have been treated like any other brave soldier who risked their lives to save soldiers in danger from angry mobs with guns but she was treated like she didn’t even matter. This woman is a soldier and a good one at that.
