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. From the Telegraph 'Sinn Fein are yesterday's men' By Olga Craig
    Teenage girls tarted up and out at the rioting must be an Irish Priests nightmare, they are meant to be at home and with child. Mass girlie rioting was also a feature of the last big Orange ruck in 05, it seems to have crossed the culture barrier. The RUC would not have been so gentle with the lot of them.

    Over on Slugger something arty “Zeal for Your House Will Consume Me”
    Great series of pictures incidentally.

    SF are scandalized that some of the "Concerned Residents" were not local. This is a little rich, they made rather a habit of bringing in their own knuckle dragging tourists to such events, perhaps not from so far a field though.

    From the Irish Times Summoned by text to the Ardoyne riots
    The power structures of SF are falling apart, can't even control their own turf. Old PIRA monsters like Storey getting dissed in the street by kids.

    I'm in two minds about this, part of me welcomes PIRA's brutally enforced authority waning but it's a keystone of SF's power and the current relative peace. The cocky spide in the Man U scarf refusing to take lip from "Big Bob" is no Freestater from what I can hear. It's probably all no more political for him than crapping on the carpet when on the rob. Suspect he will be having the traditional problems with their extremities shortly but others are watching unafraid. Sensing weakness, just as the ConDems prepare to take a hatchet to the 6C's "old eastern bloc" economy the appeal of the Green Book's deranged quest for a 32 county socialist Ireland will be rising fast.
     
  2. They're chavs, doing what chavs do. It's not political.
     
  3. Break out the dick guns and the duracells

    In good old South Africa the police are still fond of a whiff of birdshot when people start throwing things - very old school -should be tried in this circumstance as well.
     
  5. A Spidethon yes but for PIRA's head of intelligence and for other abused SF landed gentry I think it's very political and Chuckie politics can be lethal.

    SF/PIRA have now got the Long Rifles of CIRA/RIRA nipping at their ankles on their own core territories. With the great discontentment of 2016 fast approaching there's a danger more of their base will peel off to the opposition. They also know that a lot of their foot soldiers started out lobbing Molotovs at the RUC largely for sport, such likely lads have their uses. PIRA are beginning to look like The Stickies in the early 70s, easy prey for more motivated men.
     
  6. Giggle, giggle...... Oh what fun.
     
  7. Sorry lads but I'm to old for snatch squads, F**k um. Pull out. save billions and let Ulster become the Haiti of Europe
