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. http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-scheer5jul05,0,5176601.column?coll=la-util-opinion-commentary

    A good article this, and a surprise in the LA Times . Maybe some of our cousins could comment?
     
  2. Very interesting read. Yes, it does sound too familiar with the events of the Cold War and pre-WWII events as well (in regards to international relations and what not)

    Too true, yet as well as it being an unspoken truth it's also rather obvious. It's a really sad state of affairs when some sinks so low as to use that for their political gain...not to sound illusional or anything.
     
  3. After the Bolshevik putsch, and through the Cold War, the USSR and its abettors told the world:

    We've discovered the way to build Paradise on earth. We want to extend the blessings of communism throughout the planet.

    You'll love it. You'd better love it, because, if you don't, we'll kill you.


    Now it appears to me that W and company are borrowing their material from the Reds. Just a couple of minor, stylistic modifications: Delete "communism" and replace with "freedom" and "democracy."
     
  4. Sounds like the spams have finally seen the propaganda that was the BBC's The Power of Nightmares.

    V!
