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. France to withdraw special forces from Afghanistan
    Reuters News

  2. The French have SF Troops?
     
  3. They have beards and a vast range of white flags for all tactical situations :D

    Being serious, the loss of any SF, even French, is going to be a blow

    Moronic French are militarily crap "joke" - are you American?
     
  5. They have to be able to raise their arms and scream "I surrender" in 3.5 seconds flat, this is whilst they ar dropping waist webbing and weapon.

    Cnuts....the lot of them.

  6. The French have Troops?
     
  7. Well if the French are pulling out we must be about to win!
     
  8. The announcement coincides with a visit to Afghanistan by Defense Minister Michele Alliot-Marie, who told French radio it was part of a wider reorganization of foreign troops.-Would that be similar to 1940's reorg then :wink:
     
  9. How do you say "Vichy" in Pathan dialect?
     
  10. French special what? French special forces? bit early with the aprilfools arent they?
     
  11. Errm nah... English more likely... And whether as allies or opponents the English haven't seen much of the French that warranted being impressed, historically speaking...

    Seriously though, who do they mean? Don't suppose they simply meant one of the Foreign Legion's units? (Not really SOF)
     
  12. Where the French sustained the following;

    90,000 killed, 200,000 wounded and approximately 1,800,000 imprisoned.

    :roll:
     
  13. NOW who's gonna bring the cheese and wine to afgan!
     
  14. The locals probably got tired of stepping in all the dog sh** anyways.
     
  15. Isn't this old news and due to the US pull out from southern Afghanistan and the consequent loss of US helicopter support which was agreed on when they deployed?
