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. I have met Ahmad Zia Massoud a number of times and have had a positive impression every time, especially in the dark days before the fall of the Taliban. You will have heard of his Brother, may he rest in peace.
     
  2. I would have thought aerial spraying would guarantee the locals joining the talibs?
     
  3. Afghan poppy production is NOT A PROBLEM.

    Dirty, low-life, scumbag addicts, pushers, dealers and suppliers in THIS country are the fcuking problem.

    All that our "well intentioned" poppy crop reduction is achieving is to cost us insane amounts and lose us hearts and minds.

    As stated numerous times before, why not buy the Opium from them and turn it into Morphine based products? There is apparently a shortage, and here we have too much...

    Everyone wins. Except the drug dealers who's supplies of cheap heroin is cut.
