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. An intifada in France is not good for the EU. Dealing with the problem before it gets totally out of hand is the trick. Appeasement is a favorite French tactic but one that I doubt will be palatable to the average French citizen. Unemployment in France is among the highest in Europe so getting the unemployed jobs is the key but to do so will alientate other segments of French society.

  2. Why do you care? You're American aren't you?

    The French will do as they've always done and look after themselves. Until they need help that is.
     
  3. Chaos in France is in no one's interest. Chaos spreading through the rest of Europe even worse. The islamists are probably using France as a test bed.
