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:

  2. The rules of engagement are quite clear. If you believe your life is in danger you can open fire, simple as! The two seriously wounded soldiers mentioned above drove over a mine which had been washed into a wadi. There was no Taliban input. At present Iraq poses a much more significant danger. I think some people are just flapping though i'm sure if we start destroying the opium production we're going to be in a world of shit!
  3. ROE arent well understood by joe public. They are known by the military to being slightly less than hamstrung. ROE should fit the battlefield and the anticipated methods of your enemy. Along with some others on here, we arent fighting a conventional war, but battles of cut and run.

    Gloves off, use the weapons provided, call in airstrike after after strike and dont play by one sided rules will get the job done.
