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. If it is and they do, then expect a world of doom, gloom and severe shiit happening :roll:
  2. They're all eating grass to survive, its clear where all the money's going. George Bush hasn't got much to say about it though.
  3. Revise your 7/10's rule.
  4. We the current threats N Korea and the increasing build up of China, I am begining to think that Japan or perhaps S Korea may start to develope their own nuclear weapons programs.
  5. Japan almost crtainly already has its own 'ready to assemble' nukes and a large space programme.
  6. Arrgh
  7. Maybe not ready to assemble as in all the bits are there ala Ikea flat pack time, but they're certainly considered to be in the paranuclear / 'nuclear capable' club. Most reports I've seen have said they could produce their own arsenal in under a year and be able to rival other country's stockpiles after a few more years of heavy production. And as an interesting piece of trivia, apparently one of their space launch missiles is strikingly similar to the old American Peacekeeper ICBM.
  8. From the BBC:

    The United States has warned it will respond if North Korea goes ahead with a test launch of a new inter-continental ballistic missile.
