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

Currently reading a history of the City of London and it is quite remarkable how the City refused to acknowledge the changed circumstances following WW1 and tried their utmost to get back to the glory days preceding that nastiness. It finally led to an ignorant Chancellor returning the country to the gold standard which led to a complete financial debacle. Even after WW2 the City was trying to establish a financial centre based on Sterling in the face of the bleeding obvious that financial power had shifted decades earlier to the US.

It would appear that the news is finally reaching the ranks of those responsible for the armed forces.
