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. Well, that will mean Willy Vague and Call-Me-Dave will be bellyaching for Old Blighty to send more Tax payers cash via the Ministry of Baksheesh, Bungs & Greasing of Palms.......
  2. I forget, are we for or against the protesters? It's very hard to keep up.

  4. we dont really know which is why no body is saying anything from our end. so how much of a crackdown can the islamists take before they can justifiably defend themselves and start an armed insurrection? then whos side are we on?

    how difficult would it be to take and hold the canal.....
  5. Very difficult if you're floating in the stratosphere...

    Nipper (28 ), for whom "news" just passes by in a blur, asked yesterday just what this Arab Spring thingy was. I explained. I also pointed out that these things break out periodically and swathes of humanity suddenly decide to cast aside the shackles. Like eastern Europe around 1990. But sometimes the government keep them in their box, like Tienanmen Square. And Syria. And now, it seems, Egypt.
  7. Egypt will descend into all out civil war within the next 8 weeks.

    May I refer you to July 1956?
  9. i think it'll be a slower burner than that. the impression i got during the revolution was that the country wasnt awash with weapons and that this kept violence down at the time (if you'd given them guns many protestors would've been taking potshots not throwing stones).
  10. I've a feeling the Egyptian army aren't exactly going to be shitting themselves.

  12. Get about two hundred and fifty of your mates and hold a sit in.
