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. The US Federal authorities are to charge 2 over a"Micky-Mouse" plot to bomb the offices of the Danish newspaper at the centre of the infamous"insulting catroons" affair of early 2006.

    The 2 accused, Tahawwur Hussein Rana,48 and David Coleman Headley,49.The second named of allegedly travelled to Denmark twice in a surveillence and reconnasiannce operation.This must have drawn attention,as I would imagine the average US citizen would be very hard-pressed to find Denmark on a map,let alone actually leave the States to go there.Interesting that going from his name he could be described as a WASP(White Anglo Saxon Proestant).

    Apologies to out US members for maybe steriotyping Americans as insular,but I've heard of many in the US that never even leave their home states,let alone go abroad.What was it they said of Sarah Palin,"she knows about foreign affiars,she has been to both Canada and Mexico"?.

  2. Can we pass onto them the address of the offices of the Daily Express?
     
  3. The Daily express may not be the greastet newspaper in the world(is their readership into double figures?),but how about the Gaurdian?.

    There again,the Gaurdian being socialist,is probably on the side of the Islamics.
     
  4. I doubt that Mr Headley would be described as WASP. He changed his name a few years ago from Daood Gilani. (according to TV news on my side of the pond)


    edited to add: later reports said that "Headley" had been a schoolmate of Rana in Pakistan
     
  5. Interesting he changed his name.

    Hopefully a nice warm cell at Supermax awaits these two in due course.

    Your comments are infantile...look that word up in the dictionary...If your assertion is true, who are all the bloody tourists hanging about in London, etc? The one's you would call Fat Yanks?

    The US State Dept has issued more Tourists passports to Yanks than there are subjects in Britain, some 70 million.

    As a Yank once told me, why would anyone want to go to cold, wet, expensive Europe, with the rude, insufferable locals when he could visit the Grand Canyon, the Rocky Mountains, the California coast, or anywhere else...and not put up with people like you?

    Ooohhh Get Her !!!

    What is a Tourist Passport? - is that what you give to your armed forces, who seem to be spending quite a lot of time overseas, and not in Europe? :lol:
     
  8. At a guess he means ordinary passports as opposed to Diplomatic or Official passports.
     
  9. Quite right...thanks...suppose I should have made that clear in my original posting...
