Seems deeper Defense cuts in Britain will do something that Rommel and his Panzerarmee Afrika couldn’t do. Destroy the 7th Armored Brigade as a tank force. Sad commentary on the times, decades of budget-busting socialism, and askew priorities. Though the Ministry of Defense asserts that the additional cut of some 20,000 soldiers amounts to the British Army “configuring itself for future conflicts”, it is hard to imagine such truly being the case.
I hate to say it, but Elvis Costello was wrong. Oliver’s Army isn’t here to stay. It is mostly gone, and likely forever.
But yes, London is full of Arabs just the same.
