  2. we wont go ANYWHERE without the spams.
    If they dont want to be there, we wont be.
    that simple
  3. The underlying principle behind the cuts that HMF are facing, are to prevent this type of independant action. How can The UK act independently as a nation, and project our foreign policy, when we are moving into an era of sharing capabilities with our European allies.
    IMO this could be the last action of an independant UK Force, before we come under the yoke of The EU.

  4. I don't know what the fuss is about, going into an oil rich, predominantly muslim country to help oust a dictator will surely be appreciated by the natives and the wider Islamic world. What could possibly go wrong?
  5. The presence of a senior BW officer,on the first arrival of the Fighting sausage in Benghazi,is now explained-unless he was an SBS/SAS officer in drag.
  6. Afrika Korps anybody.?

  7. Already in Afghanistan......The Germans there got into a little bit of trouble back home when it was found out they painted that, minus the swastika, on their vehicles.
  8. Who says Germans don't have a sense of humour, less of course their Govt.
  9. Heh,heh.......set me up for the day that has.
  10. THis is going to end in tears. Why can't the UN find some Arab nation to go into Libya? The arrival of any western military will antagonise the region and give the Islamic extremists what they have been waiting for.
    If we cannot run the airbridge and resupply to Afghanistan how the feck will we do this lot, if it goes ahead, with what we have got?

  12. 'Heir to Blair' - No! Please no!

    PS: Probably, the Treasury, who should NOT be represented on COBRA, will demand that if we send troops to Libya, then the cost will have to be borne by cuts elsewhere in the Armed Forces.
