Inquiry AGAIN!!!!

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Moss Trooper, Nov 22, 2004.

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. As an ex QDG (20 years ogo) with a son in the gulf.. So if I talk in plain squaddie, please forgive me.!! I am totally hacked off with this 'oh! dear a soldier has shot an Iraqi, better hold an inquiry' atitude of the so called higher ups..

    They stupid or just plain fcuking blind!!!! If those upstairs realised that they 'The insurgents' are still at WAR.. then may be they would allow the lads to do there job without fear of 'out side involvement'

    One totally hacked of Dad with a heart for all the boys out there..

  2. I agree with you Moss and I will say a prayer for your son for his safe return.
    The troops have a right to defend themselves.
  3. I love the way the government claim there is no "war", whilst on telic 4 the lads in amarah and Basra suffered the heaviest fighting seen by British soldiers since Korea

    go figure Tony :evil:
  4. Thanks for that TH.. He is A sqn.. Not B.. thank god..
    But please.. More than just my lad out there..
  5. Just had some 'expert'on the box complaining that elections can not be held because the place is too violent

    However, journos start bleating when shots are fired and demanding an investigation.

    Can't have it both ways
  6. It looks, so far as the news has presented it, a pretty clear case. The driver was in a queue of cars, pulled out and accelerated towards the check-point. They fired warning shots, ignored and they slotted him.

    Has all the hallmarks of a suicide bomber.......but the tossers in power insist on another inquiry.

    As stated earler, we are still at war, no matter what the politicians say and inquiries like this may result in a moments hesitation to a squaddie and so result in a few more deaths.

    But hey! What do the politicians care! We are but cannon fodder to them......remember that next year at the ballot box :evil:
  7. True, it IS annoying that this is leading Sky News as we speak, but it wont lead the headlines in tomorrow's newspapers.

    Quotes from the BBC website:

    While I was typing this, Sky then ran a piece by Peter Sharp showing the professional way in which the Battle Group have been conducting mobile (heliborne) VCPs.
