Will it make any difference at all?

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. Iraqi tribal leaders sign pact of honour

  2. Peace in our time anyone???
  3. I don't know about this one, but in this tribal culture it's the only way.
  4. More on this...

    Al-Maliki intends to end sectarian rifts



    Iraqi minister escapes deadly blasts

  5. The best we can hope for is to achieve stabilisation and withdrawal. Indeed, that's the ideal.

    This is not our natural sphere of operations, and once we can get the tribal leaders talking then I think we should leave it to them. Withdraw without loss of face.
  6. Their conference went well until Boris Johnson turned up at a workshop to say that not enough pies were on the lunchtime menu...
  7. If the government can get the tribes to stop squabling with each others, that makes it easier to concentrate the efforts on putting the mallet on the foreign insurgents.

    Perhaps (now i know this is a long shot here), the Iraqi government could seek to join the tribes in order to act together against the foreign insurgents who deliberately target innocent Iraqi civilians. It empowers them, and helps get rid of the foreign influence.
