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. So The USA has deployed multiple Patriot defensive missiles systems to “friends in the Gulf.

    USA reportedly deploying a number of Aegis ships in the Persian Gulf.

    USA Pres hiself edges toward imposing tougher sanctions on Iran.

    Pres Obama today will tell the USA they are shagged with a $1.6 trillion deficit. YET

    Obama to freeze spending

    Areas which will not see such restraint will include defence and military spending

    Werrrrr Doomed - all doomed.
  2. Iran is doomed. No one else.
  3. Nah. It's a containment exercise.
    The Iranians are looking at a pretty busy month, cos its the anniversary of the 1979 Revolution, there will be thousands of people on the streets, and the opposition are in the mood for a ruck.
    The Yanks are sending a polite reminder that if the Iranian Government decides to do a Galtieri and try and start a foreign incident to deflect public opinion, that the US of A are there to stop them.
    Note that what's been sent isn't ground or air assets, but anti-missile systems (Patriot and Aegis). The US isn't piling up manpower on the Iraqi border, but sending a simple message.-You chuck a scud this way. We will knock it down. Don't bother.
