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. i have just pulled this off sky news. The irish army are to send about 500 troops to chad as part of EUFOR how long before the one eyed monster dips into his secret pop of troops and says hey we will send some?????? after all Brown seems to have a bit of a bee in his bonett for Africa at the mo.

    sky news
  2. In total, more than 3700 EU troops will be sent. I find it shocking that 3700 troops which Europeans “couldn’t find” for NATO in Afghanistan will now be sent to Chad to further French foreign policy objectives, in one of its former colonies, under the flag of the EU. ….You really couldn’t make it up.
  3. i agree those troops could have been well used in afgan but hey as you said its a french outpost and they dont want anypart in afgan
  4. It's even better than that - the EU has got these 3700 troops from NATO.
