Asymmetric warfare, terrorism, and Daesh.

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. Unfortunately it does not need the Iranians or Americans to have Arab fighting Arab and Muslim fighting Muslim. There seems an awful lot of that around throughout the Arab and Muslim world.

    It would be nice though if it stayed there, and not follow those who have come to the West, then start their fueding,and violence here, and seek to impose their intolerant beliefs in Europe.

  2. As the supply of women to be bought and sold is rapidly vanishing, the incidence of daesh suicides increases, their ‘Caliphate' shrinks by the day, and their leaders being vaporised in precision airstrikes, the enthusiasm for daesh and all the horror and filth it stands for seems to be waning.

    It was an explosion of mediaeval horror and barbarity that sought by violence and terror to carve out an Islamic kingdom, which doesn’t seem to have worked out quite as expected.

  3. It would seem that even the most ardent supporter of Daesh is changing their minds...or are they simply wishing to come back to cary out the last mission of revenge???
    'Crying ISIS recruiter Sally Jones desperate to return to UK' after being held in Syria

    Whatever the reason it appears that at last some sense has permeated and jihadis are being refuse entry back into the UK.

    This one has completely show her colours.

    A target for a done strike would seem to be a suitable sentence to pass.

  4. Read this earlier today. A particularly loathsome creature.

    I hope she doesn't get whacked too quickly. A nice long agonising wait as the caliphate gets rolled back would be more harsh judging by her bleating
  5. The 'meat' of that article is some source called 'Aisha' saying that Sally Jones wants to come back and is all sad face. That's to journalism what dancing with a pint in your hand is to the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

    The end days of the Caliphate is causing a bit of a frenzy amongst journos who want to stick a microphone in the faces of all the horrible muhajirats that went over there to find out all the titilating details of the rape of Yazidi sex slaves, what Jihadi John used to have for breakfast and how sorry they are for saying rude things about the Queen.

    In reality, she's more likely to have been caught up in some bombing, fighting, bummed by Shia militiamen or had her organs harvested by some satanic crime gang lingering around refugee camps.

  7. The physical end of the Caliphate is one thing.

    From memory DAESH was advising people to travel to North Africa anyway.

    I see Macron was reaffirming the French commitment to Mali this week.

    Sadly I suspect that once the Iraq/Syrian Caliphate has moved out of this phase of "governed space" back to insurgency/terrorism in the presence of the ongoing civil war, then the foreign fighters will have to pick a new trouble spot.

    And that is before we consider the persistent and high integrated AQ presence in Yemen. Another failed state that won't be solved tomorrow.
  8. And there will always be trouble spots and pockets in the West for daesh and other Jihadists to act out their beliefs according to various Koranic passages.“Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them” (Koran 2:191), “Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood” (Koran 9:123), “When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them” (Koran 9:5), “Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticise Islam” (Koran 5:33), “Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies” (Koran 22:19), and “Terrorise and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an” Koran 8:12.

    They see themselves as true believers furthering total domination by Islam wherever they are...and there are many over here who have these beliefs.

  9. How do those who support "moderate Islam" explain away those verses?
  10. Same way Christians explain away the same sort of stuff in the old testemant.

    Deuteronomy is pretty much a catalogue of people who should be killed.

    Leviticus is even worse.

  11. Much the same way as the CofE explains away the homophobia or kill the witches or lebensraum for ubermensch that are parts of the bible.

  12. Except Christianity's tenets come from the New rather than Old Testaments & I don't recall much in the way of inciting smiting in the former.
