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. Afghanistan is usually hot during the day, it can get colder at night however. 8)

    Why does everyone post the news as if it's the undeniable truth of the century...

    Maybe because the is the Current Affairs, News and Analysis section of Arrse. Which bit of that title did you misunderstand?
     
  3. Auld-Yin: I think some perople wonder where most of the news sources actually come from when posted on here :p (it's nice to see a Bogin Royal) reminding arrsers :lol: )
     
  4. Don't shoot the Messenger!
     
  5. There's a difference between news and a reporters opinion though :cry:
    I love to hear about factual news mind :lol:

    Also was joking about the topic name....a bit hot in afghanistan sometimes....in other news the air over there also contains oxygen. :p
     
  6. It's not just opinion, NATO declared 4 more deaths in relation to Moshtarak and Maj Gen Carter was quoted afterwards with

    "It's a bit early for triumphalism"

    It's just a natural progression, TB let us in walk in and set up shop then get amongst it when we are cozy.
     
  7. Whats interesting, apart from anything else in the report is:

    "Troops face the threat of explosive devices (IEDs) planted in the ground as traps, as well as coming under fire from long distance shooting. In the past 24 hours soldiers have secured a compound which contained 27 IEDs".

    What isnt mentioned in the report is that the information that led to the IED's being found came from local people.
