There is an interesting comment at the end of a BBC article http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/politics/3689755.stm made by Liberal Democrat foreign affairs spokesman Sir Menzies Campbell. The first bit is innocuous the extra troops might find themselves serving alongside US forces whom he said had a "different culture" to their British counterparts. Not in itself a big deal I think most will agree. But the second bit My anxiety would be that if British forces were sent to Baghdad and were under the direct operational command of an American commander, then they might find themselves in the position of having to decide whether or not to accept an order or whether to rely on their own instincts and training," is a valid point. Not neccesarily having a dig at the septics but they do tend to be a bit OTT and open fire at almost anything and totally wreck the place. We brits have a more softly softly approach. So these Brits who are ordered by the local US comd to join in with the septic shooting the shit out of some so called target and they dissagree and then say no sorry old boy not us. What happens next? I am really not trying to stir the shit here but remember Gerneral Jackson telling SACEUR to feck off in Kosovo and there is widespread opportunity for this to happen now the Brits are apparently going to the hotspots in US sectors.
