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. A US Navy medic has pleaded guilty to helping kidnap an Iraqi civilian in Hamdaniya, while agreeing to testify about his comrades' roles in his death.

    More here
  2. They can freely say it knowing that really the soldiers that killed the Iraqi would recieve 20 years in prison and actually would serve only 2 because of (highly possible) plea agreement.

    I propose a quiz. What is the maximum real term in the jail for unlawfull killing in Iraq for coalition soldiers? Not theoretical but real.

    It is possible that namely British serviceman will be soon punished in the most severe way. It would be unfair because he killed the Iraqi apparently unintentionally.

    Btw, main Abu-Graib abuser got 10 year but he hasn't killed anybody.
  3. Fecking sailors. :x
  4. The Medic has been jailed for 10 years.
  5. But commuted to a year.
  6. A Big Chicken Dinner for him after a year!
  7. Probably out in less than 9 months tops.He is getting credit for time served too.This saga has been going on for several months now.Lucky guy.One of me mates got 18 months for bouncing checks and got a dishonourable discharge too.
