    But the white paper did indicate a drastic reappraisal of the country’s military capabilities. Britain, it said, could never again mount an independent campaign against another nation state.

    "The most demanding expeditionary operations, involving intervention against state adversaries, can only plausibly be conducted if US forces are engaged, either leading a coalition or in NATO," it said.

    "The significant military contribution the UK is able to make to such operations means that we secure an effective place in the political and military decision-making processes.

    "To exploit this effectively, our armed forces will need to be inter-operable with US command and control structures, match the US operational tempo and provide those capabilities that deliver the greatest impact when operating alongside the US."

    Obviously a great morale and retention tool for the Ministry of UKDF. When will our troops start getting paid in US Dollars? 8O
