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. North Korean political boss Kim Jong-il has two sons who, I have read elsewhere, were born to two different women, are bitter rivals, and hate each other like poison.

    Speculation has been rife as to whom, among these two worthies, the torch of North Korean political supremacy would be passed.

    We have a winner.

    It's 24 year old Kim Jong Chol, the younger son, who is henceforward to be referred to as "the Commander."

    Mr. Kim studied in Switzerland and is described as an enthusiastic fan of the American National Basketball Association.

    "Report: Kim has chosen 2nd son, an NBA fan, to succeed him "
