European Views on future military

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. Another 'Americans are from Mars, Europeans are from Venus' article. Anyone interested in the future of the Atlantic Alliance should read Robert Kagan's 'Paradise and Power', which illustrates exactly how and why the alliance is crumbling.

    Europe deludes itself that its 'soft power' approach is somehow a valid alternative to US hard power and evcen more so that it is playing a major role in world affairs by criticising the US approach. In reality Europe is like the speccy little guy with a big voice in a boxing crowd, criticisng every move the boxer makes whilst knowing he's not taking the risks himself, and certainly couldn't do any better.
