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. I suppose the situation is clear enough.
  2. the situation over there is anything but clear :wink:
  3. In wide context yes, but as to direct involvement of Iran in supplying of the bombs then I prefer to believe British military.

    Hmmm...interesting speculation from that notoriously hard Left anti semitic news agency, the BBC:

  7. Kudos to Mr Blair for saying what needs to be said with regard to Iran. Had they not supported radical elements inside Iraq many good men would still be alive today.
  8. But black marks to Bush for driving the Iranians away again a few years ago when we'd just about got diplomatic "relations" back to "unpopular great-aunt" from "poisonous spinster second-cousin".
  9. Hmm. Has anyone been reading Scott Ritter's recent articles about the coming war with Iran? Originally thought he was barking and bearing a grudge, but this is all starting to look eerily familiar.
  10. Am I being cynical in thinknig this is a warm-up exercise to get people a bit more switched on if things go pear-shaped with Iran? Personally, look at Iran's demographics, their educated youth sector (one in three of the population are under 25) is already clashing with the Revolutionary Gruards and those freaky neighbourhood thought police militias. Give it a few more years and Iran will implode on its own.
  11. Well, it will only implode if we let them get on with it. The current flow of nonsense from the US administration and the presence of US troops in Iraq are some of the major barriers to reform in Iran at the moment. At the moment when the Mullahs bang on about the Great Satan and other such nonsense they are given credibility by the rhetoric coming out of the White House and the perceived carnage in Iraq. If we truly want to help the reformers then we'd drop the threats and start helping the Iranians. Target the info ops properly (although we've failed in this arena so far) and show them that we're nice guys who want to sell them crappy pop music, Levis, Coke, iPods etc etc. Then the Mullahs start to look like sad old nutters stuck in the past.

    And said rhetoric/carnage also serve to align bogging US/UK toops down in Iraq with the survival of the Iranian regime, thus making it in their national interest to blow us up. Perhaps it's a more sophisticated version of the "friendly fire" we get from the Yanks ?

    Y-a-a-a-y! Haw,haw....waves Order paper indecorously from a recumbent SAID it O-O-T-S...the best way to bring young Persians onboard is by providing the goods they want, at prices they can afford in the shape they want.

    Kylie Minogue and Kirsten Dunst make better ambassadors than some dour Uncle Sam lookalike Neocon threatening fire and brimstone.....
