Cuu is a character that should be hated. The deaths of Bragg and Muril pissed me off. The fact that Gaunt was stupid enough to defend him in one of the novels disgusts me.

I agree JB, but the fact remains that until they die they are protected by plot armor.

My bad DR. On topic However, I've always agreed with Rawne's outlook on the add ons to the regiment. The Vergastite in the regiment ARE second class soldiers, until they prove themselves. The Vergs pollute the regiment from its original specialization. Even if Abnett tries to tell us that civilian militias are just as badass as trained warriors. I mean WTF had Cuu done that he deserved to be defended by Gaunt? He acts like a crazy psychotic a-hole. But because of the add-on Vergs, Cuu should be defended? Gaunt should have told Hark and Zweil to STFU. If the Vergs feel slighted they can take their excuses to the GEOM. Gaunt needs to remember that he is a commissar and that the IG is not some charity organization. Since when did 40K become a happy place?

If the Vergs feel like Cuu is one of their own, what does that say about them? I mean wasn't he showing his psychotic nature before he was tried for murder/rape? I like how Hark told Gaunt that Caffran was not worth defending, but when Cuu was tried he's worth defending solely for regimental unity. HELL who cares if he is guilty or not, lets defend a crazy psycho who is very capable of such acts. Why not look for some fething evidence instead? Do they not have any form of investigative services in the IG, like NCIS? I'm pretty sure rape usually leaves evidence behind...

I thought he already knifed and threatened Larks before the murder trial in Guns of Tanith. Then later in Straight Silver, he has another bout with Larks. I want to know why this crap is not reported to Gaunt or seen by others...Regardless they should have gone on the safe side and segregated the squads. Real military units don't integrate strangers who they know nothing about into their squads. Really Larks should just pick up one of the chaos traitors guns and frag Cuu. But that would be too easy.

OUR military is not like that at all. Do you guys get people from different countries in your squads? Do you guys have Germans or French soldiers in your squad that do not speak your language? Do these foreigners watch your backs like your battle brothers do? I think not. Now imagine having strangers from a different fething planet than you, all the sudden in your squad and they are supposed to watch your six. Jeez...How could you trust them like the brothers you've sweated and bled with since basic training? Our military puts new Americans ( or whatever country you hail from) in your unit. People with the same training and similar culture.

The French Foreign Legion is a good example and yes they are badass. How many of their guys are actually non-French I wonder. To answer your question No I am not in the military. Though I may join the Army if I can't get a job with the Border Patrol or some other gov agency.

I think I would rather have Bragg, Muril and Corbec back. Plus regimental conflict just adds to the story.

Psssh its not a cheap way of dragging out a story. Like I said before I love GG, but I could have done without Cuu. Or Cuu could have just been the series asshole, that would have been funny. He didn't have to turn out to be a murdering traitor. I liked the line "sure as sure" just like everyone else, now we don't get to hear it anymore :( Plus cool characters dying ingloriously by Cuu's hands is just lame...especially when compared to say Vamberfeld's death in Honor Guard.
