Clearly the reported mutiny of Bangladeshi border guards is not really something to laugh about but the story seems to include some humourous points.

The Guardian reports how the insurrection occurred :-

“The rebels wore red bandanas and sprayed bullets into the unit’s officer corps at an annual “durbar”, a meeting where the rank and file can bring their grievances to the officer corps.”

It would seem this model of allowing heavily armed people to air their grievances  has a rather big flaw.

It apparently occurred because border guards are annoyed that they don’t get to go on peacekeeping operations for the UN. I would think that if you’re trying to make a case for being allowed to maintain peace agreements then you first need to demonstrate that you won’t execute your commanding officers.

A very strange story.
