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. Did anyone spot this in all the commotion over Lebanon?

    Below is the draft resolution discussed in the UNSC last week on 13th July. It was vetoed by the US even though it gained 10 votes for and 4 abstentions...

    Once again the US rides to Israel's 'rescue' in the face of world opinion!!!!

    [edited with 'new' colour coding to help readers identify who is being criticised.
    Red is criticism of Israel
    Green is criticism of the Palestinian Authority
    Blue is a possible criticism of Israel, but also has implications for the Palestinian Authority
    Black is equal and/or shared criticism]
  2. Well, consider me shocked and awed at the news.
  3. Could be the sunstroke suffered after too much exposure to the Californian sun. :)
  4. Reads like a very well balanced resolution but as per usual the SPAMs veto it if there is the slightest hint of asking the Israelis to stop hammering the Palestinians. And they wonder why they are hated by large sections of the arab peoples.
