Well, the politicians in this country decide where and when the military is deployed - as it should be, as you will agree.

Unfortunately, since so few PMs and MPs (hell, even Defence Ministers) have ever served as much as a single day in the Cadets, much less have operational military experience...well, it does look pretty bleak, doesn't it.

I just wonder if maybe we ought not to worry more about those things more directly in the national interest - like protecting our sovereignty and preparing more for aid to the civil power. I don't see how getting our soldiers killed in regions that want very much to fight each other to the death is in the national interest.

Ha! I guess that was your original point, wasn't it - clearly defining goals for our military. Sorry for being so slow in the uptake!
