Mortars miss bliar

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. Bloody typical, the Iraqi's get their timings and locations spotty dog for once and Bliar is late. In a way a good thing, cause his pilot was saved but still could have got rid of the wnaker. Anyone agree?
  2. need to wait 6 weeks then ctr

    or maybe not so close - he is not small......


  3. Dont know about the mortars missing him but saw on the news part of his "surprise" visit to the troops in Iraq. Once he had finished his speech the troops seemed to be a bit "slow in their appreciation" (I don't mean that mockingly). There seemed to be a regimental pause of 2 3 and then they starting clapping. Not the rapturous applause that Bliar thought he desrved but more the sort of applause having been cajoled by an RSM out of politeness.
  4. No British technical assistance then ?
  5. Are they allowed another try ?
  6. lets give them 6 out of ten for effort , definately worth another try
  7. And he claims repeated tours haven't impacted the Army's training standards. I bet the lads were well p1ssed off they missed...
  8. Damned 3 Para mortar platoon. Couldn't aim accurately 'cos they were too busy doing something else.
  9. The first thing I thought was that he had visited 3 Para Mortars and made a bit of an impression....

    As Captain Darling said in his diary ... "Bugger."

    However, on the plus side, Bliar's survival has saved us from a bid for having him Sainted.
  11. Bloody ragheads. Can't aim for toffee.
  12. They've only got to get lucky once, as our new best friend Gerry said a few years ago.

    But then, let's be honest.
    We don't want Bliar dead.

    We possibly want him:
    Prosecuted [successfully].
    Stripped of his gash honours, mostly undeserved,
    ... and having to live on the WMF's income, having defaulted on his mortgage and been declared a bankrupt.

    The sad thing is, he'll get some sort of peerage.
    The good news is, he won't be able to sit in the Lords if he gets an hereditary one :D :D :D Have to go for a cheap Baronetcy, Tone? Or go for a "biggie" which, after you screwed up the Nation, will mean diddly-squat.

    Hope that Betty W gives you something really meaningful as a farewell gift ... like an invitation to tea at Buck House. :wink:
  14. The troops arranged around him in the photo opportunity picture in today's Telegraph certainlylook less than impressed.

    If things have improved as much as he claims he could have gone for a walk outside - then the c*** could have been dropped without risk to our guys.
