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. The IRA is 'firmly committed to a political path' and 'not engaged in terrorist activity', according to the Independent Monitoring Commission.

    Extraordinary. Apparently the recent terrorist activity has been carried out by those pesky dissident republicans, none of whom have any connection to the IRA.

    This bit will come as no surprise:
    So, some money saved and more troops freed up to be stretched but not overstretched elsewhere.
  2. Gremlin

    Gremlin LE Good Egg (charities)

    More likely that they have taken a stand against any criminality that they do not control/condone or have a percentage of.
  3. They've no need to engage in any terrorist activity. They are getting pretty much every concession possible (some slower than others), so there isn't much point in them blowing stuff up any more.
  4. Didnt Cathal Goulding say something almost identical in 1969!
  5. so its just criminal activities and intimidation on behalf of Sinn Fein then?
  6. and of course their int gathering will continue - just in case!
  7. What are they gonna do with all the brand spanking new weapons they brought in from Florida now !

    Waste of money :?
  8. Sell 'em to the UDA & laugh their arse off as the Prods indulge in even more internal ethnic cleansing! :roll:
  9. They have'nt gone away ya know.
    Now Who said that ?
  10. My arrse! If they are no longer engaging in terrorist activities why do they exist?

    Oh yes I just remembered, they exist so that if people refuse to go along with Adams he can set them off on yet another murder campaign - after all that has always been the IRA (of whatever variety"s) concept of democracy.
  11. Gerry Adams has pulled off the biggest scam of all time

    They're a social club now.So they can reminesce about the old days in the maze.
    Besides,they have to have a hobby.......
  13. So those members of IRA/SF who were noting the car numbers of the people who attended the Army Presentation Team Briefing in Galgorm Manor Hotel, Ballymena, last night are not going to use the details for terrorist purposes?

    Aye right!!!!

  14. Thugs and bullies who are clinging onto their past social standing?
  15. Its not past social standing, its still pretty much current.
