Yes there has been a fair bit of telly time lately -- this part of the world seems to be in the news at the moment with the neighbours throwing all their toys out of the pram again

We are on a carrier share with the Frogs & we ain't exactly flavour of the month across the channel either at the mo. The Yanks would sit on the fence as usual until it's too late & then step in & take the glory.
Cynical, moi!

I don't think there's anything to worry about. The neighbours are showing their true colours to the world now so everybody's aware.

It wouldn't be like '82 if they did manage to invade successfully, (and nobody's suggesting it's a serious possibility) the technology has changed so much - they could just park a few subs offshore, whizz a satellite overhead to see where everything was and then throw Tomahawks at them till there was nothing left onshore to put up a fight.
