Here come the cavalry

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. Can we start a sweepstake on when/what we have to reciprocate with.

    I bid 10 days and 1.5K troops.
     
  2. Has reciprocation been demanded of the UK?
     
  3. Oh for god's sake!

    I don't know Sven, I don't have access to private discussions between our leaders

    I don't have a source or reference for that either.

    I was only speculating in a light hearted manner.

    I am sure you have some source to prove our honourable and rightous leader has or has not got any plans.

    Do tell?

    The reciprocation will undoubtly cause precipitating troops on the Taleban :lol:

    I saw it as another sly dig at the MoD - if I'm wrong, I apologise.
     
  6. More Brit troops ?

    For sure, Gorden's got to do some juicing.
     
  7. If the Gobment were not intending to send more to Afhgan, would they be withdrawing from Iraq? Personally, i doubt it.

    Just to be absolutely clear - I was having a dig, but not at the MoD.

    It is the politicians who have constantly denied planning troop increases and then sneaking the announcements out via the back-door when it is politically expedient to do so.

    Don't try to infer I am criticising or undermining any part of the Armed Forces. Criticising politicians is not the same as same as criticising the MoD, as you well know.
     
  9. Proof at last that 'we' are winning in Afghanistan...

    Ord_Sgt RIP

    You're always wrong chavita. :oops:
     
  11. Dont get too excited they are not proper Cavalry after all. Not a single pair of Crimson trousers in sight!
     
  12. Yes, umpteen times. Moreover, UK has joined the bandwagon in demanding other NATO members also reciprocate too.

    Where have you been the last 3 years Sven, asleep?
     
  13. Great, they'll send the Cavalry into Pakistan and they'll end up slaughtering the Indians.
