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. Interesting little article on FP Pipeline politics redux By Steve LeVine
    Worth reading the whole thing. Both Beijing and Gazprom are running rings round us.

    Edited to add:

    And The new Iran sanctions are a bigger deal than they seem and Actually, they're really not by Levitt and Drezner.

    Drezner has a point, smart sanctions won't work but that is all that Beijing's going to tolerate as it's got its eye on Iran's gas reserves. Actually faced with a skilled evader like Qom even dumb sanctions are not going to work in the time frame available.
  2. The (Great) Game's afoot.

    The previous Kyrgyz regime was extremely friendly to Beijing, based on trade relations, energy and mineral exports and a shared suspicion of their respective Uighur seperatists. Looks like the new incumbents want to keep a pillow fluffed in Moscow as well.
  3. Ah, exciting times return, the last 20 years have been boring.
  4. What happened to the emergency pipeline that used to run through Europe??
