Britains armed forces have failed in Iraq and Afghanistan. If Britain is to have a say in the world it will not be by using the military. This is because the military is based on obselete class divisions incompetently managed and old fashioned. Many servicemen are failures and misfits who can't even fit into normal society. Tony Blairs about giving Britain a say in world affairs by using force is out of date. Things have changed and new thinking is needed.
