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. "Retired Army Lt. Col. John Cook, author of the incendiary, compelling new book Afghanistan: The Perfect Failure"

  2. Was Schwarzkopf a medical professional on any way or form or a professional soldier? What could he or should he have done in your opinion?

  5. Seems to have done plenty of cancer stuff in his retirement…

    "In retirement, Schwarzkopf served as a military analyst for NBC, most recently for Operation Iraqi Freedom, along with promoting prostate cancer awareness, a disease with which he was diagnosed in 1993, and for which he was successfully treated. Schwarzkopf donated most of his time to multiple charities, and community activities. He sat on the board for Remington, and several other high-profile corporations. On May 4, 2008, Schwarzkopf was inducted into New Jersey's Hall of Fame. He was also an honorary board member of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. Schwarzkopf lived in Tampa, Florida, until his death in 2012.

  6. Hey! Don't kill the messenger...... but he was after all actively promoting prostate cancer awareness to the American public as well as promoting hair care products, this would at least have demonstrated that his hands were not tied, however he strangely chose to stay silent on his fellow veterans health issues on the war that he commanded.

    I firmly believe that any Army Officer who chooses to use his Military rank after retirement should also continue to have a moral obligation to lead by example in civilian society, this is because "Semper Fidelis" does not have a expiry date.
  7. I wish some ****** would, the only poster more anoying than earth, Domovoy and the RSS feed.

    Stormin' wasn't USMC dullard. Try NE DESIT VIRTUS but the idea behind that may elude you.

  8. Experience has shown that your beliefs and opinions have a much validity as a pile of dog poo lying next to a guilty looking dog.
  9. No-one was shooting anyone. As far as I know euthanasia of spastics is illegal so you're safe.

    He had the right to support whichever charities and promote whichever products he chose fit after dedicating most of his life to serving his country. Just because he didn't support whatever cause is making you cry this week you think you can pick fault with him after his death?

    You're a ******* sicknote waving wretch who needs to be punched by a fist made of threshing machines.
