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. Doh! From the thread title I thought it was about next year's General Election! At least we know that will be 'rigged' - postal votes et cetera.
  2. "The omens could hardly be grimmer. Not only are the military objectives hazy, but a campaign costing $20 billion a month has no political direction. Voters here, as in Afghanistan, deserve the truth.

    We are pouring blood and money into a black hole, and the flow will not be staunched unless a political solution is found."

    That would be in a divided, corrupt, tribalistic and fundamentalist infested narco-state with long history of conflict.

    Perhaps David Milliband might offer some realistic and constructive words on that small matter instead of spinning his usual shite
