That may seem dramatic but we are at war with those who seek to hurt us, the Taliban, Isis, Isis K, Russia or China
Let me start with the UK army. It is around 70,000 but many of that number includes beaurocrats. In the official definition of an army, the UK does not actually have an army. There has been cost cutting after cost cutting and although our soldiers, airman and those in the navy are the same, we are a very sad looking defence force.
Given the change in circumstances in the likes of Afghanistan, thanks to the decrepit Biden, the country that is supposed to be controlled by the Taliban cannot control the whole country. So, the likes of ISIS K move in and make training camps.
Who do you think they are going to attack? The West, that is who
It is time for a rapid increase in “defence” spending to counter the effect of Isis, Isis K, China and Russia. T the moment, they all see the UK as very weak and under resourced.
To protect our country, as it is clear that the US will not help, we need to increase military spending between 10 and 25% but with not the stupid waste that has gone before.
