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. Come on what gives I'm sick of this .

    Go back to the events in the past 2 months. Lots of Anglo, Negro, Chinese, Old men, fat women, thin bald men,middle aged rastaferians Christian, Hindu, Seiks buddists and marsian were seen to blow up things.

    What is the point of searching any of the mentioned id all those wo blew themselves up or tried to were Joung male Muslims .

    Waht a waste of valubile time by the rozzers haveing to search mrs Bottom the 67 years old going to France for a day.

    That does happen in the States every bloody time.Mr GutFlop from Idaho is searched while the JMM walks on without a problem.
     
  2. Coming though US customs not long after 9/11, I looked like I had been dragged through a hedge - unshaved, scruffy, looking slightly suss due to all the cd's in my my bag ......... and the customs folk grabbed a little old lady in front of me and gave her a major going over cause she was number x though the detector.

    PC = stoooopid!
     
  3. I was landed at Heathrow on the night of the 7th July (Notice the correct use of an English date) and you would have expected all number of security measures to be in place.

    No instead there was plod standing about in an attempt to ‘reassure the public’.

    They seem to have adopted the method of lets fcuk the people who won’t complain. For example some kn0b jockey told me off because I walked through the metal detector with a coffee cup.

    At this point in a very loud voice I said so what about that bloke over there with the extremely large day sack on his back.

    Made him look like the tool that he was.

    If the Army can just about manage to protect itself against attack, how can we expect a bunch of clowns, who experience on terrorists comes reading ‘Rainbow Six’?

    If you pay peanuts, expect monkeys.

    Nope, . . . I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?


    So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners are not allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids,airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone because of profiling.
     
  5. It's all b*llox son.

    Wouldnt want to upset them so they'd want to kill us.

    Oh

    wait a minute.........D'OH!
     
  6. Michelle Malkin notes, I believe with some error,

    The politically correct are handmaidens of terror.

    But handmaiden may be a too-mild appellation

    For the worms at the core of the threat to our nation,

    Who are far more concerned with our socialist purity,

    Than commonsense measures for our nation's security.

    They'll insist we don't need anti-terrorist powers,

    Till terror bombs blow down their own ivory towers.

    More than mere handmaids in true servile sense,

    They're concubines of correctness in Jihadist tents,

    Plying socialist sweetmeats to death-dealing masters,

    Naively abetting more future disasters.

    Respect our dark brothers say these houris beguiling,

    No need for your paranoid, racist profiling.

    Forget swarthy males from the East caused our losses,

    We must share their pain, understand their root causes.

    These handmaids ignore their own reasoning powers,

    Like no grannies flew planes into those twin towers;

    Or why we're not shown after a terror event,

    Any mug shots of men of Caucasian descent.

    They insist we ignore facts as plain as their faces,

    Like Islamo-fascists tend to be certain races.

    No, Michelle, dear, I fear that handmaiden's in error,

    Simply too mild a term for these true whores for terror.
     
  7. Yeh I know.
     
  8. The trouble is you can't identify Muslim extremists by sight.
     
  9. Usually the shaved head and suicide vest gives it away.
     
  10. Tim McVeigh - Die hard Muslim?
    Unabomber -Another islamic nutter?
    Jeff Weiss - 10 dead in his wake, must have studied the Koran.

    We can all use examples of Islamic nuttery worldwide , but stop and search shouldn't be restricted to just one certain racial profile. There are other nutters out there with different agendas , and showing them we are looking at all sorts of people might just dissuade them from going ahead with their own twisted plans.

    Or are we going to assume there isn't one White Muslim convert out there who doesn't think about planting a bomb? John Walker took himself off to the 'stan with the express intention of fighting Allied troops.

    In fact , let's just stop and search dark complexioned Muslim males, and ignore the women, after all, there haven't been any Muslim women suicide bombers , have there.

    Have a category "A" group for S and S , but give other groups a tap up once in a while.

  12. I know we are destined always to fight the last war, but the most active threat is from those who believe/say they are acting for/on behalf of Islam.

    It is silly not to be more suspicious of such, while not ruling out opportunists with other interests.

    The phrase 'intelligence-led' has been used a lot recently. To stop 'Muslim types' only as a proportion of population would not be very intelligent.
     
  13. I like PTP's idea of a Category 'A' Stop and Search (Young (possibly Muslim) Males carrying bergans etc but also hit others as well but not nearly so much.
     
  14. The last idea is a good un I think, but I can't see the police searching ANY muslim females, especially those in traditional dress on fear of causing offence, only a matter of time until one goes bang though.
     
  15. How many female Islamic coppers have the Met. got? Quick edict from an Imam of standing , and search away.
