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.  
  2. Will £50 million negate the effect of the influx of refugees on Jordan? Perhaps, if they pay them to travel somewhere else. Not sure who would take them, though.
     
  3. Am I being pessimistic, or is this £50,000,000 in exchange for King Abdullah signing up and kindly offering to finally take Abu Qatada off our hands?

  5. But doesn't the £50m include kit we will leave behind in Afghanistan? Easier to shift over there than take home. Priced high. Including training and intelligence? So its not just cash. So that we offset this against our commitments to African aid? The £50m costs far less and we get good-will out of it and a stake in Syria's future?
