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:

  2. Domestic beltway politics getting in the way of competent foreign policy. What's new?

    Didn't we see this for over 3 years in the Balkans? :x
     
  3. Bang goes Iraq then! (In a mushroom cloud type of way)
     
  4. Ah yes, laden the bill with enough pork to feed all the muslims in the world twice daily for a year and call it success.

    Will see if it makes it through the Senate, only to be vetoed by Bush
    .
     
  5. Read the small print - it probably says withdraw from Iraq straight into Iran
     
  6. Nope the "small print" says WE HATE BUSH MORE THEN WE LOVE THE TROOPS! FCUK THE TROOPS AS LONG AS WE RETAIN THE MAJORITY.

    '08 is round the corner will be interresting to see what transpires........
     
  7. The bill will not get through the Senate. If DoD runs out of money the American public wont be very pleased. The last time this happened was a show down between Clinton and Gingrich. The fury of the public spurred Congress into action on funding the government. The manuever backfired on Newt.
