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. I wonder if this barrier will court as much controversy as the (in)famous Israeli wall.

    I guess not if they keep to building on Saudi territory and do not encroach on 'stolen' land.

    Interesting though, that the country from where several of the 9/11 fanatics originated now has to build such a monstrosity to keep out the hordes of fanatics created by the US's response!! I guess that's what the septics mean by "pay-back".
  2. I suspect it's more for the future than now. When the civil war really gets going the Saudis want to stop it spilling over at all costs. Don't forget they have a sizable shiite minority who aren't very happy.
