Could the Americans have just saved us?

Good news if it could save the Armed Forces from a few cuts.

Then again, we shouldn't stop cuts in order to fulfil our NATO obligations and the whole 'special relationship' shite. We should stop cuts in order for us to carry on enforcing our own independent foreign policy, not the USA's.

Basically, I don't like the USA sticking its nose in our buisness. On the other hand, I agree with the sentiment.

Could have been cooked up by Cam and Clegg as an excuse to not cut Defence without their own Parties blaming them for it; ask the Yanks to play Bad Cop.

Whatever the reason, if it stops the Armed Forces being raped, it's a good result. But I'll believe it when I see it.

Cynical maybe, but who knows.

Maybe the "special relationship" will pay dividends.

It would be about time!!

Lend lease II or give us the same money they give to Pakistan! :)
The Marshall plan (Obama Plan), would sit better 6.5 billon that wouldn't have to be repayed and that was 60 years ago.
