Britain 'would be ready for war against Russia in two years

Post by Irn Bru on Thu Nov 03, 2016 12:55 am

Britain would be able to fight a war against Russia within two years, Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon declared today.

Nato ‘is waking up to the challenge’ of rising Kremlin aggression , the Tory Minister told MPs.

And the alliance would be ready to confront Vladimir Putin ’s forces in a showdown, he insisted.

Holy shit - what kind of statement is that? He'd have been as well sending a telegram to Putin telling him to get all tooled up and ready for the final showdown.

Fallon should have considered that if Trump got in that he may well tell Fallon - you're on you're own mate. Of course, that may also apply to Clinton.

I suppose his two years are related to waiting for the aircraft carriers that Labour ordered.

Trump does.
The dread lies in where any war v Russia would be fought.
Northern Europe and the UK. US bases in the UK lobbing nukes at Russia.
Russia returning them with interest back at us.

the democrats have already declared war on russia by saying they are going to unlesh a cyber attack on them, something clinton has said would be an act of war if russia did it.

I was going to say Devil that its Clinton not Trump.

Why would we want a war full stop, no matter who it is against. I dont mind Russia, they've done nothing to us.

If we do, it will be entire annhilation for the world, as too many have nuclear weapons now.
