TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -The UK Army chief is deploying one of Britain’s most well-tested military tactics – begging for money by using Russia to scare the public and government into action. To quote analyst Mark Galeotti, “Russia is being weaponised.”
General Sir Nick Carter will reportedly tell the Royal United Services Institute that he’s worried that Britain’s military is not keeping up with its adversaries – basically Russia – with particular concern about Moscow’s long-range missiles, “aggressive expeditionary force” and “cyber-warfare capabilities.”
If you’re wondering what he means, it’s kind of similar to the British missiles placed on Russia’s border in Estonia last year, or the expeditionary force deployed next to them, or the UK Army’s cyberwarfare specialists at 77th Brigade or GCHQ. So much for not keeping up!
The general is coming forward with his begging bowl, apparently under orders from Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson, who’s held his position for about three months, which brings his military experience to… three months.
