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:

  2. Ah so THAT is why Iraq was invaded.

    Nothing to do with WMD, Dastardly dictators, bring freedom and democracy, liberation of women or any of the 101 other reasons trotted out of the past few years.

    It was always about stopping Al'Q from starting up their own empire.

    Well of course it is obvious now he points it out.

    I wonder what next months "reason" will be? :?
  3. Who briefs Bush? Isn't Iraq a Shi'ia dominated muslim country? My point being that Al Qaeda is a Sunni terrorist organisation, the same one that has been busy killing scores of Shi'ia muslims in a pretty successful attempt to bring about a civil war.

    That being the case, how does Pres Bush expect Al Qaeda to take over Iraq? Or am I missing some hugely clever, though obvious point?

    edited for stupid omissions!

    Funny old thing - I caught Gerry Adams spoutin' away on the radio this am - before the inevitable snarl and hitting OFF - and remembered Thatch's rather wishful dictum about denying loonies the oxygen of publicity.......Once upon a time,in a galaxy far away, it was worth carefully analysing what the Leader of the Free WorldTM had to say on any issue - and generally ( bar Tricky Dicky) the veracity was rarely in doubt .......not sure I want to even be aware of the latest semi articulate mumbling from the shaven anthropoid.....if he told me the sky was blue I'd take a shufti.... :x

  5. Looks like the Kremlin has a differing opinion from George W:

    "Kremlin envoy says Iraq turning into "terrorist corporation".

    Article starts:

    "A high-ranking representative of the Kremlin issued a chilling warning Wednesday saying that Iraq was gradually becoming a "terrorist corporation" producing new generations of terrorists.........."

    In 2005 Reg Keys, the father of one of the 6 RMPs killed at Al Majar,Iraq in June 2003, stood unsuccesfully against Tony Blair in his Sedgefield constituency. The attached is taken from his website:

    Mr Blair: A pretty straight sort of guy......

  7. As opposed to a violent radical Christian one based in Washington DC?
  8. We all know the answer, he is either incomptent or a liar - either way, he is not fit to be in office and deserves to be held account for his actions.
