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. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/3782787.stm

     
  2. Ill believe it when it happens, there are far too many people out there who see it as an easy way to kill septics.
     
  3. Hmmmm.

    1. My Bullshitt o' meter just pinged off the scale

    2. How long has this guy had comms with Red Team? Which leads to ..

    3. Surely you can't manufacture an entire uprising?

    4.Ali Allawi, his cousin, is the Iraqi defence minister. This would be the same department, with a bunch of Iraqi Militiamen and Policemen (allegedly on our team) who downed tools on a regular basis, or were lifted about to give sceptics some good news with an IED?

    Where are armed members of the Iraqi National Army (INA) now then?


    Oh Lord, something really stinks. Didn't think it could get worse than Chalabi. 8O

    This all sounds like a New Labour election promise. In other words, it's too good to be true, they don't really mean it and anyway it'll never happen.

    Just wait for it all to turn to a crock of sh1te and watch them blame Chalabi.


    New Allawi, New Iraq......
     
  5. It does seem that this scheme of putting the bad guys in charge of Fallujah (what else has happened?) has just left them a useful base of operations. That was the risk, that putting the gunmen in charge of security would just legitimise them..
     
  6. What is it you fine and cultured English say?

    "Balls"

    The Iraq formerly under Saddam today is a false partition of a land area that contains three principal tribal players - Sunni, Kurd and Shia. Any viable self governing scheme will have to take this to account.

    Best bet for the time being is to invest in Iraqi morgues and cemetary stock . . .
     
  7. Why are we surprised ? The locals are not stupid - their ancestors were inventing mathematics (hint: arabic numbers) when our ancestors thought painting themselves blue was cool. And outwitting the spams is hardly difficult after all, they seem to go out of their way to be predictable and always underestimate the locals (doggone ragheads !). .
     
  8. The Kurds are about out of there:
