Brit journo: 'Bungling raids by US troops fuel Iraqi anger'

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by hackle, Dec 12, 2004.

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. hostile piece from Saturday's Times. The reporter Anthony Loyd is an ex British Army infantry subaltern, author of "My War Gone By I Miss It So".

  2. And of course we never made mistakes like this on the Falls and Bally M in the Seventies???
    If Mr Lloyd is so concerned about these poor people and feels the need to pontificate on who he thinks would fit the profile of an insurgent, let him go and try to interview some of Zarqawi's lunatics!!!!! :roll:
  3. We might have, but then we at least have learnt form our mistakes and have offered help and advice freely and without comment. this type of action, especially with press reporting is causing deaths not preventing them. The US troops should think more, rather like MLR
  4. Obviously never passed his staff writing course! :roll:
