Stratigic Defence Review - a very polite way of saying 'Defence Cuts that are about as subtle as Ethnic Cleansing and a lot less discriminate'.

The phrase/premise used at the time to explain the need for cuts was "There will never be another shooting war". This premise stuck until the Army was sent to a shooting war five years after SDR. See Op Telic.
