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. Putin's 'rape joke' played down
    BBC News
    Link
     
  2. Russian premiers have a bit of form for rape related jocularity. When Stalin was challenged about the tendency of the Red Army to rape anything that breathed during their invasion of germany, he brushed it off with a couple of cracks about them not having gone all that way without "being able to take some trifling thing" when they finally reached Germany..
     
  3. Actually pres.Putin said: "What a mighty man he turns out to be! He raped 10 women - I would never have expected this from him. He surprised us all - we all envy him!"

    Of course it was a joke with meaning: I doubt that this old pillock was able to do it.
     
  4. The sort of thing you would expect from Borat, Kazakhstan's roving reporter.
     
  5. He's off to Kazakhstan soon isn't he?

    Beware of umbrella wielding security men! (sort of..!)
     
  6. He's actually going! 8O

    'one might advise against such a thing Sir'
