Don't forget the 'Peace Dividend' now that NI is fluffy and soft, and the 'real time increase in capability' caused by the latest cuts, er, re-shaping.

Anyone see Rumsfeld with David Frost on BBC24 last night?

Sorry , only just stopped seething .

Optimistic view : We're stepping up training to get out of there soonest :D

Pessimistic view : It's going to hell in a handbasket, and those we have trained so far are in large part not making any sort of difference, and are riddled with insurgents. :(

Which is it?

And all this on top of a NAO report that says the british armed forces are dangerously close to being unable to mount operations if the current deployment/training programme continues !!!
Call me a cynic , but aren't the fireshirkers about ready to strike again , and when they do, will we be expected to cover that again?
Or heaven preserve us , another foot and mouth outbreak?

I cannot get over there no matter how much i plead. Our unit will not let people go!!!!
If reg: get out, and join the TA :D

If TA: join almost any Corps, such as RAMC, REME, QARANCS, and you'll be sandy-side up as soon as maybe.
