MoD Defence intelligence update summary 24th July 2023

Today's defence intelligence update is particularly concerning.

I've always had some sympathy for the view of Vegetius, (See my quote of today, posted just before this post,) up to a point. Nations who want peace are often wise to be prepared to defend themselves so as to deter anyone from attacking them.

Of course, there does come a point when one has gone beyond preparing to defend oneself to preparing to attack others.

A nation which trains all it's schoolchildren to operate combat drones should be watched very carefully by its neighbours, even if it does not have any previous record of invading them.
