The power battle between East and West is about to be settled. The power base shifted last year over Syria when China backed Russia. If China backs Russia again just sit and watch the West hand-wring but be powerless to do anything.

The West is in decline and has been for years and the East has risen. That's why England is so anxious to keep Scotland in Britain because without it they are just one small country on an island of three. Will they still be able to keep their seat on the UN Security Council when they are no longer 'Great Britain'?  Probably not.

Well, theres a nice cheery note to start a Friday on.

Where's the nearest mincing machine so I can throw myself into it wink

On a more serious note, I wonder if our politicians will now have the sense to stop decimating our forces. Senior officers have been trying to tell the over-paid civil servants for years that the World is potentially more dangerous now than it ever has been. Unfortunately, all the politicians could see when the Berlin wall came down was pound signs, they ripped our forces apart so that they could squander millions elsewhere. Very few of the politicians these days have any experience of military service and so have no concept about the threats to and defence requirements of our country. The British bulldog has had its teeth pulled out but the politicians are continuing to lead us into the abyss like a load of lemmings. Couple that with allowing the European Union to dictate to us on who crosses our borders, including terrorists and criminals..................

wheres the On switch for the mincing machine sad
