Britain Needs Navy To Provide Firepower, Not A Ferry Service

Nice to see the FAA and all the other matelots from medics to drivers getting some well deserved recognition for their efforts in Afghanistan. :roll:
... Indeed, [the RNs] role in the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan has been so peripheral ...
... These conflicts have been low-intensity, where the overwhelming priority has been force density – boots on the ground – rather than the hi-tech stuff, such as cruise missiles ...
... the Navy has been mainly reduced in Afghanistan to providing a support role for the movement of troops and equipment to and from the conflict zone. The only contribution of real note has come from the Royal Marines, who have fought heroically....
Good to see a journalist who knows what he is talking about.

Actually, what I meant to say was it would be good to see a journalist who knows what he is talking about, but until then, we need to put up with this sort of contrived shite from a ' world-renowned expert on the Middle East and Islamic terrorism.'
The Comments include:

<<Wonder if the emergency ferrying operations by the Royal Navy did anything to create a small spike in enlistment.
That would be fun to know, too.

Ninja-S and S Mario - Be on the alert for an application from a certain undersized Mr/Ms Hughes. What Fun :wink:

(As if there were not enough poor applicants in the ever-extending queue for the RN already).
