    Hmm, no mention that FP is now very firmly under the overall control of the Yanks, I believe? Something to do with a recent problemette involving USMC Harrriers (And, more pointedly, USMC fatalities).
  8. Are you trying to suggest the USMC have not seen the funny side of the rockapes attempt at a Benny Hill sketch?
  9. To be fair, it wasn't as good as 'amarillo'.
  10. I'd be very surprised if that was the case but even if it had been the case at the time it wouldn't have made any difference - the FP response is coordinated by a combined, joint ops room.

    Anyway, being under US led command in Afghanistan (and elsewhere) hasn't exactly reduced our bill in blood and treasure has it?
  11. You believe totally incorrectly. Still, let's not let facts get in the way.
  12. Perhaps but they didn't blow up several Harriers with that one!
