War

Recommended Posts

Interesting:

"A declaration of war is a formal declaration issued by a national government indicating that a state of war exists between that nation and another. In the United Kingdom, only the monarch has the power to declare war and peace, under the royal prerogative.[1] There have been no declarations of war since the Second World War, though British Armed Forces have taken part in armed conflict on numerous occasions nonetheless."

The last official declaration of war by the Crown was against Thailand in 1942.  The last US declaration of War was against Romanian, Hungary and Bulgaria in 1942.

We only have two aircraft carriers (one of those is a helo platform), the trained strength of the RAF would struggle to fill a decent sized football stadium, military bases are closing every year, there are more reserves in overseas theatres than any other year.

We currently are engaged in Iraq, Afghanistan (which lets face it are conflicts that are that old, they have become multi-generational) and Syria, plus god knows how many "advise and assist" jobs around the world.

The British Army saw a 31% drop in recruitment last year, with net retention decreasing every year across all the services.

Main line equipment is being made overseas, or parts for main line equipment is made overseas. 

While the men and women of the British Armed forces are some of the best in the world, there are not enough of them, trained and equipped for the "Cold War" era style of warfare of yesteryear.

You sure your not talking about the Canadian Military now then?!

Also if your a Manx scouser have you never chatted with members of the Northern Ireland community? I had two colleagues at school one who’s life goal was to join the Ulster Defense Regiment and another who believed people had a legitimate right to bomb it. They rarely tolerated each other’s company but it was interesting to hear either give their perspective. 

The world is more complex than you pretend. 

I would rather say that Humanity is More Complex than you would Pretend.

As a Daoist I’m happy to see humanity as a part of the world. Not sure why you want to make the distinction Druid.
