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. This was written by a Canadian woman, but it also applies to the U. S.,
    U.K. and Australia. THIS ONE PACKS A FIRM PUNCH!Here is a woman who
    should run for Prime Minister! Written by a housewife in New Brunswick , to
    her local newspaper. This is one ticked off lady. 'Are we fighting a war on
    terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who
    brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001 and have continually
    threatened to do so since? Were people from all over the world, not
    brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from
    the nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania? Did nearly three
    thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death
    that day, or didn't they? And I'm supposed to care that a a few Taliban
    were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come
    from and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency. I'll start caring
    when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all
    those innocent people on 9/11. I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics
    in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of
    which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan. I'll care when
    these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head
    while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat. I'll care when the
    cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Afghanistan come out and fight like men
    instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques. I'll care
    when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of nirvana care
    about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs. I'll care
    when the Canadian media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on
    stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or
    their families waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.
    In the meantime, when I hear a story about a CANADIAN soldier roughing up
    an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't care. When
    I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move
    because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank: I don't
    care. When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat,
    and fed 'special' food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining
    that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe in
    your heart of hearts: I don't care. And oh, by the way, I've noticed that
    sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran.' Well, Jimmy Crack
    Corn you guessed it, I don't care!! If you agree with this viewpoint, pass
    this on to all your E-mail friends Sooner or later, it'll get to the people
    responsible for this ridiculous behavior!If you don't agree, then by all
    means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please
    don't complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen
    here in our great Country! And may I add:'Some people spend an entire
    lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the
    Soldiers don't have that problem.' I have another quote that I would like
    to add AND.......I hope you forward all this. One last thought for the day:
    only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you: 1. Jesus
    Christ 2. The Canadian Soldier. 3. The British Soldier.4. The US Soldier
    and 5. The Australian Soldier. One died for your soul, the other 4 for
  2. Faif play..great words
  3. you go girl!!

    I don't care.
  5. Well said
  6. Couldn't be more spot on....
  7. Brilliant words. Well said Madam.
  8. Oh dear, not again..... :x
  9. Random_Task I think that the point is the sentiment contained within the piece not the authenticity of this letter as coming from a certain woman or not. OK so it was written by a journo, so what? I don't care.
  10. She could have reached out to the younger generation and dropped the "I dont care" to be replaced with "Am I bothered?" - still good though.
  11. I get the sentiment part,it's just that these rants seem to do the rounds with increasingly frequency, although to be fair I've not seen this before,normally it's the "Immigrants, not <insert nationality> must adapt".
  12. Wow, I doff my cap in respect to that Woman, well said Ma'am :)
  13. Fair comment R_T
  14. I've seen too many of these manipulative pieces of bullshit doing the rounds. Granted, this one is better written, and at least presented as someones opinion (at last) as opposed to some of the earlier pieces of turgid bullshit, but it's still the same shit.
    Lots of words and not a single pic of a cameltoe anywhere.
