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. General Dannatt has just been interviewed on Channel 4 news after an earlier speech at Chatham House.

    BBC report

    An interesting discussion point...

  2. I think he's about the only one facing reality at policy level. We simply couldn't exert the kind of military presence we did 50 years ago if another general war kicked off, so it doesn't make any kind of sense to spend vast amounts of money on a force measure that would never be capable of doing what it's intended to do.

    That given, it's far more sensible to spend what money you do have meeting the committments you actually do have.
     
  3. Well said!!
