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. Yes, he is a Moslem.

    AWOL Soldier Arrested in What Police Say Was New Fort Hood Terror Plot -

    He was awaiting a Court Martial relating to paedoporn found on his government computer. (stupid as well as a traitor)

    He apparently bought ammo and powder at the same gun shop that sold a gun to Major Hasan. The gun shop owner had apparently learned a lesson and called law enforcement when he realized the soldier did not seem to know what he was buying,

    just a copycat and not a good one either - criminal as opposed to jihadi I reckon as you havent really much to lose when facing a US prison a muslim kiddy fiddler, not even the nation of Islam would protect him.
  3. Apparentlythis jackass hadn't even deployed yet for his first mission in Afghanistan. This is also like the situation about the dog Hasan who hadn't actually been in a war zone yet but was claiming to be suffering from PTSD. What?!? :omfg:
  5. Not defending Hasan or anything but you can definitely get PTSD from having other people tell you the horrendous shit they went through and watching them try to deal with it. Apparently it's a known problem in the shrink community.
  6. What is it with Fort Hood, is it a special facility for the hopeless retard perchance? An American Deepcut???
  7. A Hassan copycat and an incompetent one at that, thankfully. I hate to think what may have happened if he actually had a clue.
  8. BBC News - US serviceman held amid 'plot' to attack Fort Hood

    **** me, not a lot in his favour is there?

    Not a very conscientious conscientious objector - armed with 'guns and bomb-making materials'!
  9. Just a really huge base. About 240 square miles, 10's of thousands troops
  10. 240 square miles? Blimey, everything really is bigger in Texas.
  11. Your post cause me to check the figures. I was wrong apparently. Fort Hood is actually 340 square miles. That is big. Over 200,000 acres. (not sure how to do the hectares you people use. Still it helps when they want to use big shooty things not to have shells drop into towns. I have been told Ft Hood has more more military personnel than any US base but no idea if that is true.
    With a base that big you can understand why they might have a couple of bad ones stationed there.
  12. 240 square miles, would not want to run round or stag on around that perimeter!!
  13. I'm sure that the fact he is Muslim will be deemed 'irrelevant' and purely a 'coincidence'. Wouldn't want to upset anyone now would we?
  14. He was caught bang to rights then!
  15. He's a soldier, and doesn't know what to buy in a gun shop. What a retard. Whilst I'm glad the little ****** has been caught It doesn't say much for his PSI's. "Errr I want some of those bullet thingies, do they come in different sizes? Does this Black stuff with No Naked Flames on the lid go Bang?"
