Gaddafi vs THEM and James Bond

Discussion in 'Syria, Mali, Libya, Middle East & North Africa' started by Abdiel, Mar 5, 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. Ah, arming, aiding and abetting insurgent groups...haven't we seen this somewhere before? Tends to return to bite you on the arrse a few years later when strategic aims change!
  2. Maybe thats why we might be doing it, to ensure that when its over, we can keep reminding the future government of Libya how much we cared and helped, we lost Gaddafi and his oil, so we have to start grooming the next generation of leaders. Or maybe we are just nice.
  3. Didn't really work with Shias or Mujs though?
  4. A biit like being bitten on the arrse when Blair agreed to let UKSF train Gaddafi's security forces in 2008?
  5. True, well the taliban didnt exist in the 80's, northern alliance types did, and there still fighting on our side today. But we're not pushing this lot into it, possibly we hope this time round they will be more receptive if they are the ones who took the intiative. And it looks good helping the freedom fighters bring democracy and all that.
  6. no comment!

  8. Couldn't you talk Pope Urban II out of it in the Vatican Naafi over a few scoops?

    He wasn't in the Vatican ,he was in France when the madness took him , sprouting shite at the Council of Clermont, that's when they banned Catholic Priests from marriage and they all took up sodomizing kids, and Simony instead, turning the Catholic church into the Worlds first multinational rip off
