Apache vs civilians

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. First point, not too sure but the spray of the Apaches' cannon surely can't be 100% accurate
    Second point, just another scum bag journo trying to score a headline at the expense (yet again) of the hardworking British Serviceperson. Just my opinion
  2. BBC and accurate reporting, highly unlikely....

    Imagine the PR uproar if it was our man Harry - the spare heir!!
  4. "How can you shoot women and children?"

    "Easy. You just don't lead 'em so much."
  5. That's the great thing about the Afghanistan war. It's just one bunch of barbarians against another.
  6. Have you been sniffing petrol with the coons again? How many gins do you get to the gallon?

  7. They usually discharge them from the cells earlier than this. Must have been a late arrest.

    Edit; wait, I didn't account for the time difference, it's pouring-out time in the West.
  8. Ickle Jim will be standing outside the station waving a handkerchief and a goonie, singing "Tie A Yellow Ribbon" with tears in his eyes.
  9. Shouldn't you be over there then wearing your necklace of Aborigne children ears?
  10. Causing mayhem since the days of Custer!
  11. I thought the Apache was very much hailed as an awesome piece of kit, good at backing the infantry up, specifically requested to libya, able to launch from ships and generally very well thought of...

    Why such a negative view from the BBC? Bet the crew are properly miffed if your debris theory is spot on!

    Oddly enough there is a view held that it's an expensive new shiny toy that was designed for the Fulda gap and has been shoe horned into counter insurgency work because toys are important and budget is important but actual results well those can be spun by our ex News of the World chappie that we've hired for £2,000 a day!

    We've killed two men and a goat - they were armed with a bag of fertilizer and 40 year old AK47 and the whole exercise only cost us about £15 million!!!!
  13. Sounds like a pretty dangerous goat to me... What were the blokes up to!?

  14. As others have stated its the BEEB that well known pc, mullti culti, anti British organ of the chattering classes, havn't you noticed that all their reports on famines, wars, civil strife etc always have a few shots of starving snotty nosed infants etc, to encourage all the handwringers to feel sorry for them, irrespective of the fact it is probably the heavily armed male adults of the same country who have terrorised the civilian population & stolen most of the food & aid for themselves, often taking the older children to become child soldiersand/or suicide bombers!!
    Plus the Taliban & groups like the IRA use/used women & children as cover to snipe at our troops from, they know that the British troops are unlikely to want to endanger them!
