I cam across the following story about the US redeploying airmen on the ground in Iraq and it made me wonder - should we do the same ? http://www.startribune.com/stories/484/5662062.html "the Pentagon has begun deploying thousands of Air Force personnel to combat zones in new jobs as interrogators, prison sentries and gunners on supply trucks" Just think, we could use the RAFP as prison guards (dooooor ... open!" - makes a change from barriers I suppose) and get those irritating PS2 obsessed geeks that infest the int branch into an FHT and make them see some sunlight. Who on earth would you put on gun trucks though ? The RAF Regiment would get a nosebleed moving more then 200m away from the perimeter fence and I don't know that I'd trust the average techy with a GPMG. Banter aside, is this the way forward to meet our shortfall in the infantry ?
