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. Recently received this in e-mail format, not sure whether true or not, but in any event having our son injured in Helmand recently it fits my sentiments ecactly.


    "From: This was written by a Canadian woman, but oh how it also applies to the
    U.S. , U.K. and Australia


    THIS ONE PACKS A FIRM PUNCH



    Here is a woman who should run for Prime Minister!


    Written by a housewife in New Brunswick , to her local newspaper. This is
    one ticked off lady.

    'Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not
    started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11,
    2001 and have continually threatened to do so since?

    Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day, in
    downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from the nation's capitol and in a
    field in Pennsylvania ?

    Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning
    or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

    And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be
    tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting
    against in a brutal insurgency.


    I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for
    incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

    I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start
    caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime
    punishable by beheading in Afghanistan .

    I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off
    Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

    I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Afghanistan come out
    and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding
    in mosques.

    I'll care when the mindless zealots who blows themselves up in search of
    nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide
    bombs.

    I'll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that their freedom of
    speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the
    ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when something
    happens.


    In the meantime, when I hear a story about a CANADIAN soldier roughing up
    an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this:

    I don't care.


    When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to
    move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank:

    I don't care.

    When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and
    'fed special' food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that
    his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe in your
    heart of hearts:

    I don't care.

    And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and
    other times 'Quran.' Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it,

    I don't care!!


    If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail
    friends Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this
    ridiculous behaviour!


    If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you
    choose the latter, then please don't complain when more atrocities
    committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great Country!
    And may I add:

    'Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a
    difference in the world. But, the Soldiers don't have that problem.'

    I have another quote that I would like to add, AND.......I hope you
    forward all this.

    One last thought for the day:

    Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

    1. Jesus Christ

    2. The Canadian Soldier.

    3. The British Soldier.

    4. The US Soldier, and

    5. The Australian Soldier


    One died for your soul, the other 4 for your freedom.

    YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET ALL OF THEM.


    AMEN!"
     
  2. if only more people were like that...

    but she missed out the french, the german, the estonian, well most of ISAF.
     
  3. offensive crap
    especially has serving muslim soldiers have died in Afghanistan.
    some septic xtian fruit loop.
     
  4. Good girl!!!
     
  5. Bit to much religious sentiment for me, but over all, nail and head springs to mind.
