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. Here is a fascinating article about a Jewish/Iraqi emigre who runs her own business monitoring Jihadi websites and the like.

    It could be wind-up for all I know, but it makes interesting reading.

    Rita Katz, New Yorker magazine article.

  2. You can also be a counter-terrorism operative in your spare time right in your own home.

    Here's what to look for:

    ** "Suspicious" apartment, storage facility and hotel room rentals.

    ** Guys traveling with plenty of liquor, smokes, and baby formula.

    ** People who carry driving licenses and other identification documents with them.

    ** Fellows who own more pairs of Levis jeans than the average.

    ** People in possession of scanners and walkie-talkies.

    ** "Unusual" discoveries of weapons.

    "Terrorism: What The Public Needs To Know" (Texas Department of Public Safety Counterterrorism Intelligence Unit)

    That last tip, about weapons, might be problematic in Texas where the number of guns probably exceeds the number of civilians and any civilian who isn't a convicted felon or certified psychotic can get a concealed carry permit.
  3. I got as far as The New Yorker - Fact. Then gave up. How preposterous...
  4. Riiight. Why don't you just go back to reading your Grauniad or Libération then if it offends your sensibilities so.
