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:

    From the above, I take it that we're not all convinced that the sacrifice of blood and treasure was worth it for a bunch of opium producing, goat molesting, child abusing. illiterate, innumerate, god-bothering ne'er do wells?

    I just like to be clear on things.

    PS can someone copy in the CGS?

    I don't fancy the Syrian's chances if Poppy starts shouting at them.

    N.B. the only weapon that she will have at her disposal will be a strongly worded letter signed by yer man Hague.
     
  13. Why bother? He wouldn't listen anyway...
