“A castrated lion – the perfect symbol for European defence

Discussion in 'Multinational HQ' started by armchair_jihad, Dec 15, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. see the Lion before and after

  2. This is comforting. Although we cannot agree on a glorified picture I believe that agreement on common comms, weapons, tactics and even policy will be a breeze.
     
  3. :sleepy:

    As always, pointless and tedious.

    Some people need to get out more and play with rush hour traffic.
     
  4. Female soldiers with no interest in a penis? Gee. Who'd ha' thunk it. 8O
     
  5. "Now the Nordic Battlegroup, a force of 2,400 soldiers, is looking deeply embarrassed. For sceptics who already consider the Nordic Battlegroup to be something of an oxymoron – it is led by the Swedes, who were last in battle in 1809 – the operation on the lion is not an auspicious omen."

    WTF has it got to do with the Yanks. Although to be fair and serious - what a load of old b0llox. They obviously haven't got anyting better to whine about :(
     
  6. Maybe the Swedes would like a more contemporary picture..

    So - a lion without nads and a piece . . . they best get rid of the mane too then - just to be sure. And that sword looks a bit dangerous - could have someone's eye out, and let's not forget - swords are being banned in the UK.

    How about a nice potato peeler and a pinny?
