Discussion in 'Syria, Mali, Libya, Middle East & North Africa' started by thegimp, Nov 18, 2011.

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. HAving succesfully escaped from my Syria contract I'm getting Basra jobs pushed under my nose..

    I've not been there since the Palace got handed over/back (I did a bit of light dusting, jemmied off the bar plaque and gave the keys to the cleaner)

    Whats the situation/exposure level in and around Basra. Are western civvy operations targeted and to what degree.

    Odds give me odds, preferably so I can **** it off and go to trinidad and tobago instead

    Cheers

    IED threat is the worst in Iraq.
