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. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/3509241.stm

    FARK! 8O
     
  2. Watch the Spams get out with their tail between their legs and leave it to the rest of the world to sort out. What a complete balls up!
     
  3. "Technical problems" - that's shorthand for "Won't vote for the candidate we want" isn't it ?
     
  4. I seem to recall Donald Rumsfelt saying last year (in response to speculation that Iraqis might elect an Islamic Iranian-style government): "Let me tell you, this will not happen"

    Hmmm... Free and Democratic elections, anyone?

    ...a débacle the whole thing...like I've maintained from the beginning....

    Not quite as bad as it seems. Transfer of authority from the CPA to an Iraqi Interim Governing Council is still scheduled for June this year. The main technical difficulty is that there is no electoral roll or proper organised political parties.
