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. http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20081006/wl_nm/us_afghan_usa_nato;_ylt=AuCPxcjIVMAwavqxzdWAk3Bm.3QA

    It is a very interesting approach. However, unlikely $17 bln would be enough and as ANA is overcrowded by insurgents then it looks that at least partly the money would be spent on Taliban training (and arming).
  2. Well hopefully the French won't be able to afford to buy all our nuclear reactors after this...
  3. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/power-cuts-feared-in-uk-nuclear-plants-crisis-951810.html

    So our French friends would think twice to buy or not to buy.
  4. There are over 2,600 french troops in Afghanistan and they are engaged in the fight on a daily basis.
  5. Damn you and your "fact's" sir!.
