I think it's been flying for quite a while now....many in the UK may not have noticed however, I bet a few nations around the world have been taking note for a while now and when (not if) the balloon goes up somewhere in the world that impacts dramatically on the the U.K's interests, our forces once more will be sent in both ill equipped and under manned. History does have such a habit of depressingly repeating itself....and it seems the powers that be NEVER learn!
 
Theres a saying --------------not sure who by
" If you want peace prepare for war"

I think it should be pointed out to the Pollies who seem more interested in the social well being of the numerous immigrants that have
settled here in the UK

4 year terms of government. We spend more time and effort working on the next useless app for our iphones than we do reforming basic human leadership. Nothing will change, old lessons learnt will die with their forbears yah di yah!

I'm with finks, except I don't have to point is out every three seconds.

Think it originally came from a chap called Vegetius in around 375AD - "Sic vis pacem, para bellum"

Didn't know that. I just know fisher put that latin up at Dartmouth...so I presumed he made it up being a clever chap and all.

That quote was also in the drill shed at Excellent, I think it's the establishment motto but maybe wrong.
