Iranian bombers in Thailand - Proof of a campagn against Isreal?

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Speedy, Feb 15, 2012.

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. I know there is a thread running in the NAFFI about the one who blew his own legs off, but according to this BBC report: BBC News - Thailand releases CCTV of Iranian bombers in Bangkok the Thai authorities arrested one at the airport and know that the third member of the team managed to get on a flight to Malaysia. They also report that devices recoved at their rented apartment match those used in India against Isreali diplomats. Iran of course is claimign that this is all a fit-up by Isreal, but will this provide extra ammunition for the 'international community' to take action against Iran?

    Jesus H Christ do you live under a rock or something - duh! - Iranians and the Israelis kill each other when they get the chance in state sponsored terrorism.

    The sky is also blue, grass is green and Sean Penn is a **** in case you had missed out on these other groundbreaking news stories.
  3. It demonstrates that the Iranians have a certain black sense of humour, using Israel's preferred assassination technique in retaliation.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the upsurge in Iranian sponsored terrorism wasn't a ploy by Dinnerjacket.

    After several months of bombs/casualties, etc, what's the betting he'll start putting feelers out saying "ease up on the sanctions and we'll ease up on the terrorism".

  5. Israel need a reason to justify them tearing Iran a new arse in coming months. In the run up to a war truth is the first casualty. You can read what you like into these attacks, just as you can into 911.

    The legless Bangkok grenade chucker was probably just looking after it for his mate "MOSSAD Ali."
  6. If that's the case, the Red Sea Pedestrians might have got an early Hanukkah present:

    BBC News - Iran loads 'first domestically-made nuclear fuel'

    No doubt the hawks in Tel Aviv and Washington will spin this as proof that sanctions aren't working and the military option is the only one left...
  7. Yes, but my point is that those acts never end up with the perpetrators lying in the full glare of the worlds media as is the case here, and the PR coup it hands the Israelis.
