I’ve spent today worrying about ‘mission creep’ in Mali, it now seems that the West has created a theatre that stretches from Pakistan in the East all the way to Mali in West Africa. This is totally unsustainable, our political leaders are already talking about years of operation in Africa. Perhaps opening a dialogue with radical Islam might be better than years of waging impossible to win wars, but what would I know. Mind you I don’t want to be cynical but military spending and production is one area that has not been out sourced to the developing world and we have economies that need kick starting.
