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. Whilst having his backside chewed by the US Congress, General Petraeus praised the British army for what we have done in our AOR! He praised they way we have trained the ISF. He also said that we had followed our aims and goals of the last four years, in bringing stability to our Iraqi neighbours in our area and to the second biggest city in Iraq (Basra).
    In doing this we have began to reduce our man power and by leaving the City to the people that live there.
    He used this to justify some of his reasons for wanting to down size his forces. Basically if the Brits can do it so can they
  2. Good for Gen Petraeus.
  3. think you might be a bit optimistic for this site...
  4. Maybe but after the slagging off HMF has had from various ex-generals, consultants and every pundit and fat fecker with an opinion in the states, it may send out the message that UK forces have been pulling there weight.

    Then again maybe the plan now is to pull the guys out of Basra and stick them on the Iranian border now, ready to catch the sneaky barstewards coming across the border..............
  5. you mean like the slagging they got from the UK media & on takes an American general to state that they did a good job that would be emulated by the US?

    Just a thought.

  6. ???? :?
