Article A good peice of journalism outling the the dangers of cutting defence spending. The governments negligence and ignorrance when it comes to defence spening really scares me. This government continues to deploy our forces all over the world, pushing them to their limits, and then undertakes defence cuts and downsizing. While various nations all around the world like china, russia, n.korea, iran ect ect are rearming and throwing loads of money and resources into defence. The cold war may be over but if we've learnt anything from history, its that the world is NEVER safe, who knows what the future holds. We need trident and we need significant increases into defence spending to support our overstetched armed forces. The thing is, the governement may be supplying enough money, but its being absorbed by the operations in iraq and afganistan and trident. While the future of our armed forces is being ignored. We need more money to compensate this. Very few are speaking out against this and when they do the government ignores them. It really angers and saddens me to see my country battered and bruised by this government. Lets wait and see what the next budget holds..
