Lest we forget.

Iqbal

There is a lesson here for modern British military and geopolitical policy. Don’t make military decisions for political reasons. Don’t send an underequipped force in aid to an impossible strategic vision that does not correlate to reality. Don’t underestimate the enemy.

Maybe our politicians should remember this tragedy before picking a fight in China’s backyard with a navy that has too few hulls to make any impact.

All major military decisions are political. Yesterday’s lesson was to remember the cost.

It’s a good thing that our politicians feel duty bound to attend services and lay wreaths. Lord help us if they stop.
