  1. according to Sky News. wait out

  3. source: PA News via Scotsman website
  4. I bet HMS Ocean is being warmed up too.....
  5. When do we run out of troops?
  6. having read the BBC report it seems asif Chirac is ready to behave as Bush does, have not heard anybody shooting him down in flames about it, as for who can go I am sure thatthe rose coloured specs give the impression that there are plenty to spare.

  8. wouldn't it be oh so ironic if the French find themselves embroiled deeply in their former colonies , and the U.N. wont help them so they have to come beret in hand to the u.s. and britain for help

  11. its the Gurkhas going isnt it? they were also the ones who went into West Africa last time, when they went to Sierra Leone early 2003.
  12. Typical of Blair - send the Gurkhas in then don't pay them the same pension as anyone else - he should be ashamed but sadly would appear not to know the meaning of the word

  13. In retrospect I may have been a bit quick to judge the good people of the Ivory Coast.
  14. I think you'll find a large one of these [​IMG] will do the trick nicely.
