In their turns, to tyrants fall

First verse: Nato commander warns of conflict with Russia in Arctic Circle.

Competition for resources in the Arctic Circle could provoke conflict between Russia and Nato, a newly appointed commander at the alliance warned yesterday.

Second verse: Chinese ambitions may be to give its carrier air wing an air-to-surface role from the outset.

Numerous images of an intriguing facility claimed to be at the Wuhan ship design institute have appeared on the internet in the past few days. The images show a building on which an aircraft carrier’s main superstructure is being fabricated, along with a large roof area that could be used to practise aircraft and helicopter deck handling.

Third verse: Cutbacks for both the Royal Navy and the RAF.

The navy is certain to lose its fourth Trident submarine and Stanhope admitted that even the two new carriers were not safe.
