Why do we hate the Russians?

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. We send Two Jags instead of Her Majesty the Queen.


  2. Because we hate the Russians?

    Anyway , the Queen was busy helping the Guernsey Islanders celebrate their collab.... oooooops liberation from the Boxies.

    And Blair was too busy of course , such things are beneath him. I'm sure it had nothing whatsoever to do with Bush 43/44's comments about those gosh-darned commies oppressing Europe etc etc.

    Ironically, perhaps Prescott was the best choice, being former MN ?
  3. LOL! That's Anglo-Russian relations set back then.

    Watching that parade on the news was like going back 25 years! Impressive but sinister. Putin was not so subtly saying "Don't fcuk with us!" to the assembled ranks of World leaders
  4. It looked very impressive. However the saying "You can only polish a turd so much..."
  5. i don't, i think the Russian birds are quite fit :D
  6. Seeing Putin look so at home reviewing the troops, I thought exactly the same, then told myself off for being such a suspicious Cold War obsessed bint! :roll: :D
  7. Didn't know we hated the Rooshins.
    Most of my army service was spent waiting for Ivan and his gang, to cum over the boarder and then buy time so western politicians could do whatever.
    Communisam was the enemy, socialisam as we call it in UK.
    Good to see HM with her loyal subjects.
    Suppose folk traitor Blur is to busy prepareing his defence for his forthcumming Impeachment and as for two Jags well I suppose it shows even Neu Arbiet has a sense of humour, understand he's used to waiting around for orders.
    Not bad for post 666, mi old Sqn.
  8. You've got to hand to them. They know how to put on a military parade.

    Remember all the old AFV recce photos we used to get shown taken at the annual may day parades?
  9. Then they hit 40 and suddenly transform into Dennis Healy's ugly sister. Can't figure out why, but for some reason it always happens.
  10. They certainly do -I'll give them that. Remember the bad (good?) old days when there'd be rank upon rank of T-72s followed by ICBMs on their transporters. After that the sky would darken as the MiGs and Tupelovs flew over.

  12. I was struck by the level of emotion displayed. Yes I understand it from the veterans of the Great Patriotic War , but the young were very visibly moved too. Mind you, with all that hardware and the Gimn Sovetskogo soyuza playing loud and everyone young and old singing it with patriotic fervour, it must have been a wonderful atmosphere . Even a stone would have felt emotion.

    Then again, Russia has never tried to play down the achievments of it's veterans , unlike this bag o' shoite in Government.
