Well B'liar needs to listen, take note and leave No.10 with his head hung in shame! He has put American interests before those of his own country.

Well done!! Just goes to show how powerful this site is.
We should however as we all know be careful as to what we say on this site (PERSEC/OPSEC etc etc)

BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU :twisted:

They could have found a scruffier soldier to put on the front page though.

- Helmet not done up,
- Pockets undone
- Strange grip on the rifle

Crikey? Aw come on, you're meant to be a rough as f*ck squaddie. We don't use words like 'Crikey'. I'll bet you're from Yorkshire.

I guess they are trying to make a point by using such a photo? An untidy soldier may be used to say... the Army has had enough and is at the point of revolt? Just an idea, it does seems strange to use such a scruffy soldier! Not really the best photo to use in my view.

Looking at the bottom left of the front page as well ARRSE actually gets revealed as the source of info.

You can just about see it in the bottom left of the picture underneath the patrolling soldier.

Im wondering, where's his belt kit?

I'm sure the_matelot will be thrilled to find out he's a soldier though.

Body Armour open (I can't see if he's even got a plate in looks strangely flat)
Dust cover open
Starting to break into a grin
Posed like that for the picture?

Are you suggesting that a national newspaper would put a Walt / fellow journo in assorted bits of desert kit just for visual impact?

Preposterous 8O :D

At least its a "respectable" paper rather than those muppets at the Scum jumping on the bandwagon.

Well done guys, at least we definitely know that the monkey in Number 10 knows all our views now! It may increase ARRSE membership from the forces as well. It'll be interesting to see the stats of the site ("hits etc") after today.

Well done to all!

Crikey!

Edited to add, at a quick comparison, the site looks very busy today :D
