Another Fine Mess.

I am slightly confused, a popular uprising is taking place against a vicious tyrant, Gaddafi is struggling to hold on to power, the last thing the rebels need is some foreign government interfering, sending in troops, what is so important to British interests that Cameron has to authorise the use of special forces, something that has been hastily arranged and badly organised, it was clear from the capture of Dutch military rescue units that foreign forces would not be tolerated, they can not just operate with impunity inside a foreign country, gun  boat diplomacy is no longer the vogue, especially when you don’t have any gunboats, if the U.S.A. does not believe it has sufficient hardware to enforce a no fly zone, two Carrier Battle Groups.  Britain just isnt at the ball game a couple of Typhoon’s at Akrotiri two thousand Kilometers away.

There must also be a question mark over the reliability of some British units, these type of mistakes seem to occur with increasing regularity, it does Britain no good in the eyes of the world, we just seem incompetent. Time for a re-think.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
