Having to Cut What?!?

Inquiring minds are seeing the possible future here in the United States a few years from now by watching Britain and their austerity measures. It is sad but Britain is a neutered power:

Britain’s ability to carry out military operations is at risk because of Government plans to take an axe to the defence budget, a scathing report warns today.

A powerful group of MPs says that current missions, including the war in Afghanistan, would be threatened if ministers made cuts of up to 20 per cent at the Ministry of Defence.

The Commons’ Defence Select Committee expresses concern that the Strategic Defence and Security review is being carried out so quickly that ‘serious mistakes’ will be made.

This could undermine the Armed Forces, threatening the future defence of the realm, the MPs say.

Of course, Britains greatest threat is from within and that doesn’t take as much money to defend.
