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. Pakistani UN peacekeeping troops have traded in gold and sold weapons to Congolese militia groups they were meant to disarm. A UN investigative team sent to gather evidence was obstructed and threatened. The team's report was buried by the UN itself to "avoid political fallout".

  2. No shocks there then, this sort of thing has been happening for a long long time. Many nations providing soldiers for these sorts of areas have internal security problems and so send thier least professional soldiers to areas they just dont care about. The result often being that the UN cure aggravates the problem.
  3. Ask B Coy, Their Wrs were full of tabs after doing the prozor escort.
