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:

    No blaming of religious preaching this time, would appear they just don't want anyone helping out the Afghan people. If they continue doing this over time it will turn the local people against the Taliban.

    Whatever happened to the law of armed conflict whereby any aid or medical organisation is neutral...
     
  2. Interesting to note that an Afghan was killed trying to beat off the kidnappers. Most Afghans hate the Taliban as much as we do.

    Western Kabul is a bad place. Walking around that district is a bloody stupid idea.
