Forcing more spending cuts on the military would be dangerous and disruptive and would damage the countrys ability to win wars, the head of the Army warns.
Gen. Sir Peter Wall warned that further savings would place the Armys future plans in jeopardy and seriously damage its professional competence in some areas.
George Osborne, the Chancellor, has said he wants to find £11.5 billion ($18.1 billion) of savings from Whitehall departments, and the Ministry of Defense is expected to be hit hard. The Army is already being reduced from 102,000 to 82,000 personnel after the defense budget was cut in 2010.

Sorry, no funding available. We have to pay for Abu Qatada’s lakeside cabin and fishing pontoon.
I sympathize with the British Army Chief. We aren’t going to win any wars with that M/F Kenyan as our CIC.
You won’t win wars unless you name the enemy either. Its free, but like the US, you still won’t do it.
Newsflash: You’re not winning wars now.
The British have a problem with Pakistanis grooming and drugging young white girls for sex. Nothing to see, move along now.
The two most powerful natiosn i nthe world, Brittain and the USA, 2 tiny nations, raised up from nothign to becoem great sueprpowers and world shapers- reduced to impotency in just a few short years thanks to Godless and immoral political correctness that cares more about criminal rights than it does abotu perotectign hte rights of it’s citizens
What God achieved for our 2 tiny natiosn was nothign less than spectacular, but what dear leader and ilk did to throw God out and to cause God to turn His face from us was nothign less than truly shameful- The left keep creamign about ‘rights’ and ‘freedoms’ and ‘gettign out from under the shackles of morlaity’ and they keep claimign howm uch better off swe’ll be- but look aroudn folks- the US and Brittain are becomign hte laughign stock of hte world- we are no logner respected or feared-, and we are fallign apart fro mthe indside out- that is precisely what happens when you throw God out and invite the Evil one in- it’
s not freedom- it’s enslavement to sin- Wake up!
As Mitt Romney commented last year, "Bankruptcy concentrates the mind." As the United Kingdom is proving, bankruptcy also destroys nations. Sadly, the United States is rushing headlong into the same abyss.
I read this article earlier and thought how eerie similar to our own military this is..
as thought the same group are pullng the strings...
It’s not about bankruptcy concentrating the mind anymore.
It’s about bankruptcy of the mind.
They’d better keep at least an army brigade to defend the Royal Family against the Muslims.
Having Prince Harry sit in a bunker and fire his machine gun at the Taliban is just a new version of Vietnam with fewer casualties.
Harry and Billy are well and deeply protected. At least until the Queen passes. Daddy may have other plans, after that circumstance.
Given the weapons to protect him, I think Harry could fend for himself pretty well.
You have good higher emotions. Your family and friends are blessed, by you.
Thank you, RedHeeler. You are very kind.
Apparently he hasn’t gotten the memo that winning wars against muslims offends muslims.
