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. what time will it occur? within this century? or the next? or after?
     
  2. The Chinese don't desire an empire foolish child. Go and play now.
     
  3. They seem to be content with sorting out their own internal affairs and otherwise remaining friendly but distant with foreign countries (apart from Russia, who recently became their friends for ever and ever amen again).
     
  4. repeat after me, this is a shed

    You obviously are not a student of history are you?

    They've already had one, and don't look as if they want another.

    But if, hypothetically, they did; my money's on Friday the 43rd of Noctember 2243 at about tea time.
     
  6. China is an empire.
     
  7. China tea I presume?
     
  8. better start learning mandarin then,princess.

    Chinese Takeaway Islington, Barnsbury, Holloway, Highbury, Pentonville, Finsbury Park...

    Below is the delivery area, if you're on it give them a call . .

     
  10. As soon as they master niall Ferguson's "six killer apps" I suppose. I imagine "Protestant work ethic" is what's holding them back now because they appear to have consumerism sorted!

    Well, at least I wasn't the only person listening to "Start the Week" this morning...
     
  12. Within 35-50 years...? It should have been 50-75 but Iraq and Afghanistan screwed with the US's global image and shortened the transfer; which was unfortunate. [This thread too sensible for BA]
     
  13. The Chines are already aquiring an Empire all over the world: the reason the West hasn't realised it yet is because the Chinese are paying for it in cash instead of bullets. Just ask me who's bankrolling all the new mines in Australia. Those billions and billions of dollars aren't coming from Western investors.

  15. It's already undeway and you don't even realise it.

    What do you call a single-pronged fork? A chopstick!

    Fiendish, so they are. Simply fiendish.
