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. Taking a quote from the Irish.

    Tiocfaidh ár lá
  2. Not soon enough!
  3. i think from irish repulicans; not the wholesale irish
  4. Been done to death, unfortunately "GB & Co" aren't listening to us - never mind the Septics. If the threat and and sheer numbers weren't enough, we're too far gone, too many daft policies, liberal wets and multicultural zealots out there.
  5. Strange that this should appear after the US intelligence agencies seem to have spectacularly dropped the ball on the Suicide Pants bomber, and that the intel that they should have used to join the dots came in part from the UK.

    If you're in trouble, one of the best political strategies available is to throw some of the crap at someone else and hope it sticks...
  6. "Strange that this should appear after the US intelligence agencies seem to have spectacularly dropped the ball on the Suicide Pants bomber, and that the intel that they should have used to join the dots came in part from the UK"

    Strangely most of the plots to bomb airliners in recent times have emanated from or had connections to the United Kingdom. Where does this leave Gordon Browns's assertion that our troops are deployed in Afghanistan to make the UK safer? It seems that we have all the terrorists we need already in the country!
  7. Good choice, because I reckon the mainland will have the same problems we had here, except it will be muslin v christian instead of prod v RC. Only thing is how long will it take to start.
  8. I agree to an extent. Neither Iraq or Afghanistan have made the UK any safer, and may have had the opposite effect. Having said that, I think that part of the 'Muslim' problem in the UK is caused by the fact that about 90% of them come from Pakistan and have roots in/family ties to the very areas where the Taliban and Al Qaeda are most active. This leads to high degrees of radicalisation. Many western countries have extremely large Muslim populations but are not perceived as having the same problems as the UK. Are the UK Government, Police and Intelligence Agencies soft on terrorism, or do they simply have a bigger problem because of the demographics of immigration? Germany has a very large Muslim population but very little extremist activity. Surely the Turkish immigrants in Germany want Shaira Law and the Caliphate as well as their co-religionists in the UK? Or are they less likely to be radical and violent because they come from a very different part of the Islamic world?
  9. and you are unable to do anything about it.

    so the invasion continues
  10. Patsy. I'll blame you when the Spams start bombing because you can't tell the difference between opportunity and intent.
  11. Been going on since the 70s. The French call Britain 'Londonistan'.

    Governments of both colours had an unofficial policy of allowing militant Arab groups to base themselves in London on the understanding that they left the UK alone in their bombing/kidnapping/assassination campaigns.

    Of course, when the loony left sneaked in on Tony's coat tails in 1997, things went mad. Not only do the authorities turn a blind eye to dangerous militants, they also fund them with the most generous welfare system in the world.

    Combine that with Labour's open border policy which guarantees admission to anybody without a passport, never mind a visa, and a Human Rights Act that means you can't be extradited to anywhere with capital punishment or without Sky Sports and soft toilet paper in the prisons. You can murder with impunity back in the old country. So long as you make it back to your 8 bedroom, taxpayer funded mansion in Westminster after the deed, nobody can touch you.

    As a final bonus, you can make celebrity appearances at mosques and political meetings up and down the country. Call for the murder of gays, Jews and anybody else you don't like secure in the knowledge that anybody who objects is likely to get their collar felt for some sort of racially aggravated offence.

    Where else would your average, globe trotting jihadi with an ounce of sense base himself?
  12. Reading the article - does this mean that they are going to invade UK?
  13. No it will just be carpet bombing for a couple of days thats all!!

    Remember this

    We will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime.

  14. The Septics trying to cover their Arrse, at least we have not had a medical officer shooting up Aldershot
