Terrorists to Spread Insurgency Throughout ME

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. ''Iraq's leaders have urged fellow Arab governments, including Jordan, Syria and Saudi Arabia, to do more to help.''

    Could be the reason for this scare story.........
     
  2. Even 3000 in comparison with coalition forces is a very small number. As to 'less than 1000' then we see that now almost all insurgents are Iraqis. But in mentioned article we read

    It's a very strange magnet.
     
  3. So what's changed then ? AQ has always wanted to install religious (or rather their brand of religion) regimes in Arab countries as part of re-establishing the Caliphate. Saddam would have had them shot on sight, and they'd have returned the favour. It's ironic that it took the US waging war on AQ to give them a foothold in Iraq.
     
  4. No he wouldn't have. Meathooks are far cheaper

    I find it incredible , that the US administration willingly lied to itself about Saddam's relationship with AQ. Or ignored CIA Assesments, even going to the extent of forming another department, to tell them what they wanted to hear.

    Or the strange case of CIA documents on their website being suddenly superceded or plain disappearing or being "enchanced" in 2002

    I do wonder, what would have happened if we had made an ally of Saddam?
