Nice chat with the Taliban

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. Not quite. Mullah Zaeef didn't show up: I guess it's a visa thing...

    But I went to an awfully interesting talk with, inter alia, the only two western journalists living in Kandahar about AFG and the way forward, if there is one.

    Intersting thing that fell out of the talk: remember the polls saying 'Afghans have hope, post the election'? They're friends with the Afghan pollster who invented the results and entered it on a spreadsheet without ever leaving his fortified basement...

    It's honestly well worth watching.
