How deluded must these people be to bring up Russia as a way to protect themselves against defence cuts? If Russia attacked plucky little Britain let’s face it, we’d be fucked. But at the same time, as a NATO member we’re protected from that non-threat by the other countries in the alliance, including the USA.
But don’t worry defence people, we’re just in a lull in the cycle and it won’t be long before the arms trade arrange another minor war so their profits remain in the trillions. It’ll only cost a few hundred thousand lives and very few will be white people – just a few hundred soldiers or so.
Welcome to the machine.
