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. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/3816371.stm

    Some good quotes:

    "Correspondents say the likeliest source of re-enforcements is Britain - its 8,000 soldiers already make it the largest non-US force in the coalition.

    That deployment could soon double in size. "

    Best I start packing now then.

    And on Fallujah where the US 1st Armd Div has "defeated" the local militia:

    "Many of the men in the new force were believed to have been insurgents, who had simply traded their red-checked headscarves for the brown uniform of the Falluja Brigade.

    It was a hasty solution, says the BBC's Paul Adams, and an imperfect one - Falluja is now a no-go area for Americans. "

    Truthful reporting by an impartial observer or nasty eurotrash whining ?
