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. From this thread:

  2. Stonks - if you could make it available - I'd be interested to hear it.

    On one hand it looks like stating the obvious - but intested in hearing the context.

  3. Keep watching "Afghan fighting" thread - on t'other hand - just click the "download" link in my first post here, today - that will get you the recording direct fm BBC, right now, in one big lump ( I will have to chunk it up into smaller pieces)
  4. Stonks - done - thanks.
  5. The UK in Afghanistan for decades?

    Good joke. Maybe forever?

    When likely US/UK would remove their troops from Iraq? Likely in 2010. The Islamists would focus their efforts on Afghanistan. So the war would be more and more intensive. Hundreds and even thousands of killed would be unacceptable payment for 'democratic Afghanistan'. Likely British troops would quit Afghanistan in 2012 (before London Olympic games). Afghan war would be an issue number 1 during future American presidential election in 2012. As a result USA would abandon Afghanistan likely in 2014.
