    Disarmament is a topic totally unrelated to al Qaeda. As for MPs on company boards, it shouldnt be allowed at all - in fact, MPs should be made to sell ALL positions upon ascending to parliment, and they retrieve them only if theyve been competent in their term.
    Sorry everyone started talking about WWII. Anyway about the whole company board thing i was referring more to the US in the hope that it would loop back round to the construction contracts. The footage from F9/11 of the man saying that all the assembled companies stood to make a lot of money was rather disgusting imo. And though Vienna may disagree i do think that many of the large multi national have an influence on the governments policies (note: not going as far as Micheal Moore here by suggesting that the war was started so that companies could profit from it)

    There is definately a military industrial complex in the USA. No doubt it was in the US leaderships minds that the war would benfit some companies however I do not see that as a reason for war, mearly an added benifit for them to consider.

    Earlier plans released also seemed to be based on the premise that our forces would be more technology based rather than man power so as to work more effectively with the US military in any future conflicts which is all well and good, but leaves us far less able to commit ourselves to any solo effort such as we recently undertook in Sierra Leone for example.

    If that was necessary then so be it however our forces are already understrength so this latest cull is a definite step in the wrong direction.
