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:


    Would have been cheaper from China......
  2. Erm..what if the Taliban regained power?
  3. And of course, who's going to notice a few more AKs on the international arms market if/when the Afghanis flog 'em? $400m worth of "Made in the USA" M-16s suddenly turning up in the hands of terrorists, rebels and the other usual suspects would be a lot more embarrassing.
  4. Same as last time I suppose. :roll:
  5. Er wonder who gets the COMMISION.
    Lot of candy
  6. The whole story looks as an anecdote. 100,000 RPGs ? And how many of them would be in hands of Iraqi insurgents?
  7. Karzai is Najibullah revisited. Unless the Taliban can be destroyed or they lose their popularity with the border tribes, I just think that they or certain factions amongst them, may have to be brought into government if peace is ever really to come to Afghanistan. BVut saying that I hope I am wrong and they just fade away.
