UK RAF prepares package of cuts
« on: October 11, 2007, 02:42:37 AM »
It seems England's really slashing there armed forces across the board I remember seeing some thing about their navy the other day. Is England's economy doing badly?   I though their force numbers including ships were all down already wouldn't cutting make them weak in certain areas?
