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. 600 people? The real tragedy , is that we've all become so used to death on a large scale in Iraq , that this awful news will pass with barely any comment.
  2. Who will the Attorney General court-martial for this one?
  3. 600, how sad.
  4. Is there a more unlucky country in the world than those poor bsatards?
  5. Hopefully Al Jazeera et al will put the blame squarely on the climate of fear (or terror) created by ........ terrorists.

    I won't hold my breath though.

    PS - edited to add that AJ should broadcast any film they have of this as often as it takes to wean the locals off any glamourised view of terrorism.
  6. It didnt even make the headlines. The Hurricane did.

    Sad day for the indigenous folks in Iraq.
  7. Gee whiz. RIP all those poor Shi'ite sods.
  8. Estimated around 1000 dead now, may rise.
  9. 1000, that's just terrible.
  10. This is horrific. Le Monde saying 840 dead according to Iraqi Ministry of the Interior
  11. In sh'Allah...
  12. In response to Part time pongo's message....... We should/will not let this pass with barely any comment.. Each and everyone of us should as a mark of respect take a moment to think of those who have lost their lives, and hope for peace soon.....
  13. I don't know whether you understand the correct meaning of this phrase, but its in VERY bad taste in this context.
  14. Yes I do fully understand the meaning of this phrase - do you?
