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/south_asia/8617843.stm

    Rest in Peace.

    Will your kin forgive us, or join the conflict against Western forces? I know what i would do in their position.

    Wouldn't that be the Air Force and not the Army, or are the rest of us missing something? I wish as a squaddie I could fly jets....
     


  3. Fox News




    Spin spin and more spin. Who to believe?

    The Left wing BBC or The Right Wing Fox News.

    I think most normal people, will use both reports to extrapolate the information they require.
     
  4. Thanks for the alternate view - i won't accept either fully now, but shall wait for the full story to come out.

    If the BBC is giving an impression of a civilian massacre, can you imagine what the potential taliban recruits in the local area are hearing?

    Maybe time for a change of tactics... ?

    Maybe its about time for a change of news source, The BBC are equally as crap as Fox News, they've been about as credible as Al Jazera for a while now, although the locals listen to Al Jazera more than the BBC anyway, which is a shocking loss of credibility.
     
  6. Doesn't anyone find it odd that every single air strike anyone has ever done only ever seems to hit civilians and never a single combatant is reported killed by the locals?
     
  7. Given that it was a pakistani jet, I fail to see how the logical conclusion is to fight western forces.
