This government is commited to destroying this country and nothing less

In yet another misguided shift to an all irregular warfare military, Britain has stopped producing its own tanks. Future armour will rely on a Swedish chassis and - for pity's sake - German guns.

... General Patrick Cordingley, Commander of the Desert Rats in the first Gulf War, warned: 'I think we have got ourselves into a real tangle here. If you look at the economic troubles of the 1930s, it ended in a terrible war.

'Are we saying it could never happen again, that we will not be drawn into a war where we will need a full range of forces and equipment?'

In Weimar England, the government surrenders for you.

Well, the US M1A1 and A2s use a 120 mm smoothbore gun designed in Germany. Of course due to strategic concerns we have them manufactured in the United States at Watervliet Arsenal
