David Cameron was forced into an embarrassing retreat over military action against Libya yesterday as the Coalition announced the biggest cull of the Armed Forces in a generation.
Within 24 hours of announcing that British warplanes might enforce a ‘no-fly zone’ above the crisis-torn state, the Ministry of Defence revealed plans to axe two RAF Tornado squadrons and fire 170 trainee fighter pilots.
Defence Secretary Liam Fox’s decision to axe 11,000 military personnel in four years cast doubt on Britain’s ability to carry out such ambitious missions.
Is there no beginnings to this man's talent for making an arse of foreign policy? I understand it must be difficult for a man brought up on stirring stories about the World Wars and plucky little England's fight against the Hun, but the fuckwit has to realise that these days are over.
He surely, has the real history of what happened. The history of the period is entwined with our friends with the big conks, who I am forbidden to mention unless I bore some of you. These are the people driving Britain and Americas' foreign policy in the region. That must be the biggest and quickest climbdown in Foreign Policy History. What a prick!
Why are we even considering going into Libya? If we do the Arabs will hate us because they'll think, quite rightly, that we're only after their oil. We cosyed up to Gaddafi for years, send Blair in as a peace keeper. It's time we dropped this pretence that we are a world power, fuck me, India and Pakistan have got more nuclear arms than us. We've got NO influence, NO weapons, NO Air force, NO Navy and NO credible Foreign Policy. Oh and keep that Paedo, who is fourth in line of the 'Royal' family, Andrew, here and take away his passport, (if he needs one), before he does any more damage to this country with his Arab Paymasters.
