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. But does Mr.Bin Laden like the Spice Girls?
  2. Mandela is, was, and forever shall be a terrorist, he faunded a terrorist organisation, planned bombings and even set out a framework for a full scale guerilla insurgency, add that to the fact that he still seems to like standing up for terrorists in his dotage and I'd like to drop that monstrosity in parliament square on his head
  3. That could be an interesting meeting!!!! Didn't one of them pinch his arrse?

    Once a terrorist, always a terrorist. At least that is what the law should state, until a 9mm is placed inside the terrorists skull. Then they can be an ex-/reformed terrorist.
  4. eeerrrr - I think he's rather more dead than Mr Mandela - or is that a tin foil hat thing.
  5. The same is said of George Washington.
  6. Is it to early to start the T-shirts?
  7. Time and distance are remarkable filters on perception....
    David Ben Gurion.
    Jomo Kenyatta.
    Mahatma Ghandi.
    Just three names that come to mind who were, at one time, enemies of the (colonial) state but wo went on to lead itheir ndependent states post colonialism.
  8. Ghandi, unlike all the others was non violent and would only santion civil disobediance in support of his cause so was not involved in terrorism.
  9. A black guy in Africa daring to fight against the white settlers? What an outrage.
  10. Civil disobedience is still disobedience!
  11. so should we start fighting the non white settlers on our green and pleasant land?

    Maybe it is, but it certainly is not terrorism.

    According to your post we should agree with everything our illustrious politicians say as anything else would be disobedience and, in your eyes, terrorism.
  13. mind you it did get pretty nasty in india after we left what was the body count from the religous unrest 500000+ i think

    edited to add we have adams and mcguinness with offices in parliment so why not bin laden as well oh right we dont negotiate with terroists
  14. Mandela could speak English of sorts.

    Unless the Saudi's have sent Bin Laden to a UK secondary school where he could learn English, if it no the schools second or even third langauge?
