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. What is going on? Sky and Reuters both report that the Army have raided a jail in Basrah to rescue two soldiers. Ok, it might not be pleasant to be held in the local nick after shooting a couple of police, but using armour to crash down walls?! Have we totally lost the plot? I thought that we were supporting the official government?
    I cannot see how this will win hearts and minds, and I am sure that the rest of the prisoners (also wrongly imprisoned perhaps?) just decided to stay in the nick rather than escape through the wall.
    For once, I am with the Lib Dems - let's get out now. We are fighting all sides it seems!
  2. I agree. Get the chuff out of there now. The soldiers arrest militants, and the locals go mad at them for it. Then arrest two soldiers! Sod them all, let's pull out.
  3. I take it youve not been following the news today or this thread?
