Iranian students storm British Embassy

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. Dozens of hard-line Iranian students have stormed the British Embassy in Tehran, pulling down the British flag and throwing documents from windows.
    The students clashed with anti-riot police and chanted 'the Embassy of Britain should be taken over' and 'death to England' as they stormed the building.
    Today's incident comes two days after Iranian parliament approved a bill that reduces diplomatic relations with Britain following London's support of recently upgraded U.S. sanctions on Tehran.

    Oh well... doubt we'll ever be going back there again anyway!
  2. I think I'm right in saying that an Embassy is classed as Soverign soil.
    The last time somebody invaded our patch, we sent a task force to sort them out. So all we need are a couple of carriers, some sea harriers and....

    ..... Oh wait...

    Maybe we could send the outrage bus with a couple of blokes armed with shotguns and a strongly worded letter!

  6. Depends on how many pubs there are. One to a pub seems to be the general quotient with our 'Them' who were apparently there.
    But that might be different in Iran, due to alcohol laws etc?
  7. Well it would at least help you avoid deployment...again.

  13. Maybe we can arrange a Podcast to be dispatched to them? ;)
  14. Wasn't HMG about to release some very bad economic news today?
  15. This sort of incident may become a trend for disaffected youth in the ME. Something similar happened to the Israeli embassy in Cairo a few months ago. Wherever next?
