Looks like the Cold War beckons in earnest once again, the difference being we've not the armed forces with sufficient manpower & resources to deter Comrade Putin. John (JKW)

Estonia anyone???

March 20, 2017

remember Afghanistan, when Russia had over a quarter of a million men, and the best heavy attack helicopters going at that time also had tanks etc, and they could not do the job, THEN  we had that idiot ( no I cannot bring myself to say his name) sending in 10,000 British troops as a contingent along with other western forces that did not any where near match the amount that Russia put in, all he had to do was,   1) look at the figures, 2) look at the history books for foreign military intervention in that area, and that would of told any one with half a brain not to put your fingers in the fire. So here we are again putting  our nose in where it is going to be bloodied again. I see we also have a lot of Challenger 2 tanks waiting to embark from Emden port in Germany, as you say both Bob and John, we no longer have sufficient forces to put boots on the ground there. In the seventies there were just over 55,000 in the B.A.O.R. that equates to just under 70% of the Army as it stands now, some one somewhere needs to get a grip and soon.
