Dr Alf raises important points about austerity and its effect on British and French military power.
Currently, the UK has 83,000 people in the Tri Forces, not enough reserves, no aircraft carriers with aircraft, no coastal protection vessel and no ability to control our sea lanes and protect our food supply.

We (the UK) are no longer a serious military power in our own right.

France is better placed with 250,000 men under arms but even they have to be part of a European Army.
Currently Air Sea Battle has been checkmated by the Chinese but not the Death Star weapons that GW Bush has positioned in space ready to attack any point on Earth.

We have a crude balance of power but one which could be upset if the Chinese were to weaponize the Moon or if the Russians further weaponized space.

We live in very dangerous times and need to find ways to achieve sensible rapprochement and a new balance of power before matters spin out of control.

If we succeed our young men and woman (the Millennials), have a bright future of work and opportunity, if not we will do them and the rest of us incalculable harm.
