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. Two articles Quoted from Times on line 12Nov09

    ONE: How to do it.

    TWO: How not to do it.

    Of the eighty odd thousand civil servants in the Ministry of Defense, how many of them will be picking up their bonuses for successful propaganda projects in the AFPAC area of operations?

    I would suggest that it in time of war, government must redeploy effective assets to the battle against our enemies.

    This should include the expensive but highly effective corps of spin doctors, currently employed to advise ministers, brief the media and so on.

    The Ministry of Defense has allowed the initiative to slip away. I say it's time to reclaim it with some really dirty tricks.

  2. Well said.
  3. Visions of headlines "Peter Mandelson goes to front line AFG to lead propaganda war" ...
  4. Are you comparing spin with just telling lies? Not really the same.

    Is this what we should be aspiring to?

    The NATO rag is just that however...

    Edited to add: A quick scan tells me it is all bullsh1t. I haven't got the time but perhaps someone would like to tot up the allied 'losses' for the past week or so just to give us a flavour.
