Discussion in 'Multinational HQ' started by Goatman, Dec 6, 2005.

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. Coalition boots on the ground for the next 5 years

    0 vote(s)
  2. CinC got it right - progressive handover no timetable

  3. Stay put until the hajjis are all dead

  4. Enough: progressive withdrawal,shoulder to shoulder, starting NOW

  5. I own shares in Halliburton - why should we leave ?

    Interesting to note the praise lavished on the Brit SHAR contingent in Afghanistan lately in this context....I get the feeling that US Army pers were pleasurably surprised by having available air assets who would ' bust down doors' on call, on task , on TIME and ON TARGET at the flick of a pressel switch......it's damn all use half an hour after the blackhats have left the village.....

    One of the comments by Robert MacNamara in his recent retrospectives re Vietnam was to the effect that the Air Chiefs THEN had too much credence and the US Army/Navy didn't want to undermine their argument by dissenting from the view that Air power alone would achieve results..........hmmmmm......
