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:

    Hoping a speedy recovery to those wounded. 20 suicide attackers is right. Smells more like an act of defiant desperation than that of a strategic effort.
     
  2. 20 suicide bombers should mean at least 20 dead terrorists surely. Useless tw@ts
     
  3. Suicide attackers, not bombers. I think the point being made is that you don't attack Bagram with a 20 strong contingent and hope to survive.
     
  4. Attacker, bomber, whatever - still failed first part of description - "suicide".
     
  5. Perhaps they were trying to score a Tet-style 'if we can't even control the area around Bagram...' moment in the world media?
     
  6. Given how large Bagram is I am suprised they tried it on like that. Like has been said they can't have been expecting to make it back.
