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. BBC News - US 'wasted $30bn on Afghanistan and Iraq' over decade

  2. No surprise really. the US answer to things is to throw money at it without actual thought.
  3. Very true, but what's our excuse.
  4. Why waste it own our own ungrateful scroats, chavs, pikies, neds and the fcuking Welsh?
  5. I don't find it all that hard to believe, they're( the Americans) are throwing money into the KMTC, buildings are going up all over the place, FOBs, and Trade Schools are being built out in the training area along with more Ranges, Gun Parks, re siting of Ammo Compounds and's scary to see and then you have to wonder how the Afghans will be able to maitain it all once we're away.
  6. Thanks, I will.

  7. At least that way, some money gets where it needs to be. Much prefer it to our method of not throwing money at it without actual thought.
  8. Tony Blair thinking the Yank way is best.
  9. I was hoping the new government would actually sort that out, but I think Cameron is similar to Blair in that he appears to have his own agenda.
