what ops is the british army best suited

sitting on the sofa ops is what they deserve.

Id say we are pretty well suited to messy drinking binges resulting in either a lift home in police car, or waking up the next morning with some one with a face like a Lurgan spade!  We seem to get enough practice!

Theres not enough sunshine in home defence, I say we defend Florida for the yanks, Kenya - but only coastal part and any other nice sunny places.
We can leave home defence to the TA :)

We could defend the church - (drinking venue in kings cross london on sunday lunchtimes) half the British Army seems to be there anyhow!

According to the press, we're not suitable for anything.

IMHO, we can be good at anything - just need the political willpower (i.e. beer coupons) to make it happen.

Nowt's going to change though - the politicians will use the forces for anything that they think will make them look good.

Asbsolutely, I think we should defend the holiday homes of British subjects, so that's Bermuda, Jamaica, Monserrat, St. kitts and ......... Wales

After so many cutbacks and different operations going on all over the world. which type of operations best suit the british army at the moment? :-/
Army, most things as long as they're not too big.
RAF, Anything that doesn't require more than 3 Sqns.
Navy, Anything that doesn't actually involve projecting power or getting anywhere quickly?

That is a very easy question to answer.

America's Arrse licking of a pet poodle side kick of course, who will do anything to please the American government so we can have the desperately needed "Special Relationship Status"

Funny thing is that come the day that we need the Americans , they will then tell us where to go!

The United States is NOT really our friend when it concerns their interests.

The last one, of course.

It's amusing thinking back to 2003 and thinking 'complaining about under-funding and massive cutting THEN?' Anyone got the thread from 1945 where Tropper was whingeing about the SDSR meaning that we would only be keeping enough forces to fight a world war as part of a coalition and the the RAF wouldn't have the capacity to drop the entire airborne corps into one place?

Possibly enduring brigade + level ops but I really thing that due to the loss of a operational brigade this will be increasingly difficult, they should cut the garrison/admin/regional side more and developed an additional combat brigade.

If Legs and Capt. Jan are anything to go by, gender reassignment ones.

erm, hitting student anarchists?
fixed it for you,

Besides their small fry cretins and would sh1t themselves if HM Forces deployed full on NI Riot tactics and the Coalition would hardly approve of it,

good bit of practise though but would'nt go down well with the Met as it would provoke the situation worse & show the Police can not control these Demo's + it does'nt look good for PR purposes
