POTUS visiting Karzai

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by vvaannmmaann, Mar 28, 2010.

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. That sounds as if he's visiting a toilet.Tell me that it's not true!
     
  2. Just watched him giving a speech to the military at Bagram. He didn't say much and trotted out a lot of predictable rhetoric, however the reception and reaction he got from the troops was amazing.

    Can't see the current shower of Britich politicians ever getting such a welcoming response.
     
  3. So Obama goes to Afghanistan to lecture its government on the need for transparency, rule of law and reducing corruption. Hmmmm...."pot calling the kettle"??? The hubris is staggering.
     
  4. Yeah, the America-hating Fellow Traveller isn't even an American citizen: He's a goddam Venusian Muslim.
     
  5. What would he have to do for you to actually like him JJH?
     
  6. That's a bit of a rum statement after eight years of president Cheney and Boozy Bush, innit, JJ?

  7. No need. He has his own, personal bathroom with kahzi and shower aboard Air Force One. Comes with a bog side phone so he can talk securely to anybody in the world.

    If you ever get a phone call from him and you can hear running water, he's either in the shower or flushing the toilet. FFS don't press the video button!

    Did he fly in on Air Force One? Bit of a magnet for shoulder launched SAMs when he's leaving.
     
  8. Probably doesn't matter to you given your socialist leanings, but take a look at His deficits, outright lies about most of what He does and those he consults with, appoints to office, sits in church for 20 years and others he regards as mentors and I think the ever evil GWB ( and amazingly influential given that you and other fellow travelers- ;-) can't seem to move on even after more than a year) doesn't look too bad.

    Edited to add: Your gratuitous reference to DUbyah's previous consumption of alcohol as if it was some sort of character flaw is , given what I understand was your medical training in the service, was beneath you since you should know better. Besides, as far as I am aware, and contrary to the present tense implied in your insult, GWB is a former problem drinker/recovering alcoholic and to stoop that low to find a rock to throw smears a lot of people (some I suspect who even contribute to ARRSE) who have quite admirable characters in spite of their previous problems with drink.

    It continues to be revealing that you and others who profess such compassion for your fellow man in terms of social and economic equality can't seem to help yourselves in attacking individuals personally rather than their beliefs or actions. I think to put this in context might be for me to rail against the Leader of the World because He is a dirty filthy smoker and this necessarily means he has weak character.

    In point of fact, while I am unabashed in my disagreements with and lack of respect for the Leader of the World regarding his views and actions politically, I do not think it really helps to go after Him for some personal foible. Yours is even worse, however, in that , as I understand it, GWB's problems with booze occurred some time ago, unless he has relapsed.

    I suppose I should not be surprised that so many espousing "progressivism" in our "modern" world appear to lack much sense of decency and of shame.

    JJH you are such a cynic, you know the 32 million unwashed will be singing his praise,s for the free medical care, and the honest tax payer will bare the brunt, and really dont give a toss about the cost of the war because the unwashed are not paying for it.

    The troops I suppose where so surprised that their president actually turned up, after nearly a year in office.

    gawd bless America !!
     
  11. I am sorry and will try to do better in future. :D
     
  12. JJ we can’t talk to you any more apparently “we lost that loving feeling” the special relationship is over, so you’ll have to get someone else to hold your coat when you go for a sh1te. :eek:
     
  13. I have been reading that over the weekend. I suppose it depends on who you ask. I for one ( and I know many others in the US military who feel the same) would be more than happy to have Brits on my left or right in the attack. Now after the fight, however, I am a bit leery of the Brit penchant for drinking games that too often involve too little clothing. :D
     
  14. See what I mean hold your own coat dam Yankie, back to the subject at least your guy likes your forces ours hates ours with a passion.
