Who decided Ghurkas make good peacekeepers?

So the Haitian cholera outbreak is being investigated by the U.N. and the suspect so far is a Nepalese “peacekeeping” base with sewage issues, in a blunt and literal sense.
This is the device they’re most famous for perfecting and using.
It’s a machete, really, with the bent-forward blade, which can cut through bamboo, Mother Nature’s own Structural Tubing. Modify the use without modifying the tool and you have an efficient slash knife that can take off a human head with one slash. No mean feat there.

They’ve a reputation for fierceness in battle. Very warlike when they feel the need and really PEACE anything doesn’t leap to mind when thinking about these dudes. But, they’re part of the U.N. mission.
Which is only a side issue, the U.N. itself is supposedly in charge of facility maintenance and that would include the plumbing. So the shit gets dumped, really, back into the U.N.s front parlor. They own the shit.

Meanwhile, back at Southeast Asia, there was yet another volcanic eruption and tsunami. There’s of course no funds for fixing the massive human needs there simply because A Certain Unnameable Society is simultaneously plundering and destroying the resources of the entire world including any funding for humanitarian needs.

Too busy meeting the InHumanitarian Needs, I suppose. Oh, and the Koalition of the Killing forces employ Ghurkas to do that too.
