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. Business as usual then, spare 10minutes and a video camera :roll:

    A very tenous link, if at all. We are a prime target by virtue of our stooge status to the US of A anyway.
     
  3. Why aren't they accepting any responsibility for not taking it back off Israel over the last 50 years? If they weren't so hell bent on throwing rockets and suicide bombers at Israel they could be living a much better life than they are today. Everyone seems to want to blame everything other than their own actions.
     
  4. This geezer's actually got it wrong! The Brits handed Palestine back to the Palestinians (including all the McTaggart forts). It was the UN that passed the resolution mandating the foundation of the nation of Israel (the Brits abstained from the voting), and it was the Israelis who decided that they didn't want to stick with what they were originally given and murdered and displaced a couple of million Palestinians so that they could have the whole country.

    In terms of lost Israeli lives, they're only reaping what they sowed. If they'd been a little more reasonable from the get-go and not so fanatical and brutal, the whole tragic mess could have been done and dusted yonks ago.

  5. this callsign backs slowly away from Bugsy whilst head is searching all over the place looking out for the inevitable incoming.
    ( :wink: )
     
  6. Exactly. We've been a target since 7/7, if not before. :roll:
     
  7. Nice revision of history there, Bugsy.

    No mention of the Arab attacks on Jews in the immediate aftermath of the vote, the movement of Arab Liberation Army units into the Jewish areas, the blockading of Jerusalem by those units, the seizure of a Palestinian region by another Arab nation (Transjordan) in the hope of expanding its own territory or, indeed, of the subsequent invasion of the new country of Israel by four Arabic nations following the declaration of independance in 1948.
     
  8. If that happens, every one of them will be found, and driven in to the sea.
     
  9. Er ... you might want to have a little think about that 'if' ... :D

    mmmmmm - I thought we were dead against a new state of Israel, and that's why we had so many of our soldiers killed by Jewish Zionist terrorists . . . .

    . . . . but of course, if an Arab says it's our fault, I'm sure there'll be plenty left-wing student protesters in the UK agreeing with them, and some labour politician apologising to the Arab world for our reprehensible history . . . .

    Watch and shoot, watch and shoot.
     
  11. Fair point. You could argue that 9/11 was the "declaration of war", since British citizens died in the Twin Towers. Simply pointing out the obvious; that AQ calling for Britain to be hit in retaliation for Sand-Pikies being killed in Gaza does not change the threat in any real way.

    As far as Bin Ladin is concerend, the UK is 667; the Neighbour of The Beast. Our relationship with America ment we were always going to be in the firing line. :roll:

    I mentioned 7/7 only because it was the first successful suicide bombing in Britain.
     
  12. Have they said where, as some of us have got a bit of off-shore fishing planned (weather permitting) for the weekend and it would be such a shame to get up early only to find the boat or docks have been attacked by the AQ maritime division and we are meant to be picking the bait up tomorrow.
