The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  2. It seems perfectly sensible to avoid offending local customs by dressing appropriately.

    It seems pretty fucking stupid to hold Miss World in a country where such an action would be required.

  3. I am offended by niqabs and the like, will they (muslims) stop wearing them?

    To be fair, it's a bit like holding a drinking competition in Dubai...

    Round One - Beer Label Identification

    Round Two - Fastest pint necked *Scrapped due to location*

    Round Three - Blindfolded beer recognition *Scrapped due to location*


    In other words, the organisers in this case appear to have not really done their 6 P's it would seem.

  9. I think he's chucked the towel in.
  10. Thats a tad disappointing.
  11. Yep. I thought you'd have noticed by now. Anyone can be offended and so pandered to, except us
