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:

    Is The Guardian haram in the US military?
     
  2. Yes. E-mail sites and adverts for a start.
     
  3. I always remembering my dii desktop crashing when trying to access the guardian.

    It also use to block parliament tv for some reason. Probably something to do with the Video programme used by the site rather than the content

  4. And well they should. If someone with a clearance(about 99% of the US Military) pulls up a Guardian story that contains the leaked memos, that person will now be having a very, very bad day. Because they just put classified information on an unclassified computer. Now, that person with a clearance can read a story discussing the documents without causing a problem. But the documents themselves on an unclassified computer are a big no-no.

    In addition to the shit they will have to personally endure, all the computer and network hardware between the classified person and the Internet has to be scrubbed.
     
  5. As far as the adverts are concerned, count yerself lucky.
