Naturalized French Citizen Killed in Iraq

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. A naturalized French citizen that had joined the insurgents was killed in an airstrike. There are thought to be more French citizens of islamic faith fighting in Iraq.
     
  2. I hope he died slowly and in pain.
     
  3. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/3944635.stm

     
  4. "french" and "died fighting" all in one sentence? Boy he really must have had faith!

    "airstrike" That good old septic trick of the "smart bomb" enimma.

    "more like him", lets hope so; also dead.

    Strange, just what I was thinking......
     
  6. Tunisian-born Naturalised French citizen Tomahawk.

    With a history of belonging to radical Islamic groups , and no doubt was on DGSE's watch list.

    Believe me, we have a dislike of the French as much as the next Englishman, but that was the sort of "blurring" post I expect on other forums :wink:
     
  7. Well Pongo where I come from whether you are native born or naturalized both are citizens. If the opportunity presents itself in the future I will make sure to post whether the individual is either native or naturalized citizen of said country.
     
  8. Yes, and if in anydoute just blame the french. Lime cordial and all that!

    Wait a moment PTP, it's no more a blurring than when the BBC reports on British citizens being hald at Guantanamo Bay.

    And the BBC always tell the truth* !

    Just hope we'll be seeing this sort of headline referring to one of the 'Tipton Taleban' fairly soon.
     
  11. I agree Cutaway

    The BBC have been doing some fantastic "blurring" lately

    Especially on the quotes they've spread round the site on the BW issue.

    Then again , clarity of story don't feature high in some editors minds.

    Judging by the number of Brits who seem to be buying houses in France I think we already are invading.
