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:

    Most Brits don't get to see Fox, ABC, CNN, NBC, The Washington Post, New York Times, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Time, Rolling Stone etc with any regularity....check out the thread in Current Affairs at http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=23891.html .........does ANYONE listen to AFN or Voice of America ?

    Hmm...keeping the Yanqi powder dry for the critical moment eh?

    Maybe there's nobody on US TV, Radio or in the Press who makes any of you guys get red in the face at shout at the box ?

    I guess we'd better de-list Noam Chomsky and Hillary then...... :mrgreen:

  3. Well, Limbaugh (he's called "Rush" because his mommy was taken speedily from behing as she staggered out of a crack den), and O'Reilly come to mind for starters.

    MsG
     
  4. Ann Coulter. Ugly, stringy, horsefaced, incoherent, shrieking, post-op transsexual hag with no clue how people that aren't from small upper-class towns actually live. Nobody in America would listen to this rambling harpy if she didn't wear short leather skirts on TV (and even then, she looks like an S & M soccer mom).

    I can listen to someone I don't agree with politically if their views are thoughtful and well-founded. But she's not even intelligent! She tries for "aggressive" and "bombastic," but not being bright enough to pull it off, she just ends up making Hillary Clinton look like Florence Nightingale. She brings absolutely nothing to the table of American political discourse and I hope she dies before her book contract gets renewed.
     
  5. Agreed absolutely. But let's not forget (s)he is a lying sack of sh1t who, if the facts don't suit the point, she will happily change them. Note especially her assertion on a CBC interview that Canada committed troops to Vietnam, and then she had the gall to argue with the Canadian interviewer about it, when he pointed out her schoolgirl error.

    P.S. Damn you, T-Y. You stole my signature! Will have to scout around for something new to demean the shaved chimp now. (Won't be too hard.)

  7. Canada did commit troops. In the late fifties, and again in the early seventies. ICCS.
     
  8. Hi RC,

    My understanding is that Canada never committed troops to actually fight the war...their above-line involvement was in very small numbers, to monitor negotiations and peacekeeping. Below the line, more involvement (mainly for financial gain)?

    To me it still belies Anne Coulter's point that Canada would be willing to fight what's perceived as America's war just because we're neighbors. Everyone tries to make money off a war so I'm not too het up about the Canadian industrial concerns referred to on CBC.

    I am neither a military historian nor Canadian, so I freely admit this could be wrong. :) If you have links I could read, I'm always interested in learning.

    ICCS -- International Center for Canadian Studies?

  11. El Gran Cabra,

    Hah! That's her.

    "Pretty girl," by the way, is her own self-applied title, culled from the column about the DNC that was too incoherent for feckin' USA TODAY to publish. It's too funny. I mean, shouldn't such an anti-feminist woman wait for the man to compliment her first, anyway? I can just imagine her trying to beat some chivalry out of her frightened dates (with her c0ck, no doubt).

    "I'm pretty! I AM! I'm skinneeeeeee! And I like, write about politics and stuff too! I'm smart! Tell me I'm pretteeeeeeeee! *whap, whap*"

    The only people that think she's actually hot are angry young males that think anorexic man-faced blondes who pose (badly) with firearms and cigarettes dangling from razor-lips somehow represent the new world order when it's really just hillbilly porn.

    On a much more flavorful note, I haven't tried them yet...am leaning on the Tankie to get us there, though! Full report to follow. You are the wind beneath my bingo wings (tm Dale). :)
