From here, former US defence secretary, Robert Gates, has warned:
"With the fairly substantial reductions in defence spending in Great Britain, what we're finding is that it won't have full spectrum capabilities and the ability to be a full partner as they have been in the past," he said.
My response:
Good! Why should the UK want to be a full partner to the every idiotic military action by the US? Every time they've followed the US into somewhere, the casualties have been higher on both sides than anyone estimated, the damage (physical, social and political) has been greater, and the monetary cost significantly in excess of what we can realistically afford.
Enough already!
