Navy operations in the middle east?

#1
For my own interst more than anything ive been trying to find out what the navy are doing and have been doing recently in the middle east, more specifically iraq and afghanistan recently. Due to recent events in my life ive been out of touch with the news for a couple of months.

Could anyone sum up the navy's involvment in both areas in a paragraph or two and i can then research from there.

thanks in advance

Well the Navy have been extremely busy pissing up and organising Ban Yans and Sods opera's. This is extremely buy work so they have had to replenish at sea massive quantities of ale and fine wines. The wardroom has been experiencing difficulties with officer stewards been so exhausted by these activities that they have had to learn new skills, such as opening and pouring their own wine and carrying their own laundry.

Well there was a jolly from HMS Cornwall,where the crews of a few rubber boats were invited to spend a few days of Arab Hospitality.They got given goody bags and "fashion" items on their departure,had a good time(they said so)they even got to appear on Arab TV!After a bit they got bored and came home.

Ah, been in outer space then have we?

Must be a journo if you're out of touch with the news- which one is it? Express? Sun?

Gosh, just had a thought, your first name isn't Percy is it?

should have elabourated, I have recently been setting up my own business. I am a car panel beater/resprayer and been working 12-14hrs a day solidly for a while now. Hence the username, i dont have any links to the navy, but the current info on the news etc is hard to grasp as it seems to all asume you have the background info first. It makes it a bit hard to pick up on

Hmmn, try turning the car R-A-D-I-O on to listen to the news- it's usually in the middle of the dashboard with an on/off discriminator button which doubles as a volume switch- marvelous invention.

Does anyone actually believe the fact that someone working 12-14 hours per day, with no links to the Navy, would be remotely arsed to ask a specific question on the said subject?

Erm no, me neither.

In other words, ignore the Troll.
