The Royal Navy Is Key to Britain’s Security Strategy
The latest British Strategic Defence and Security Review , launched on 19 October 2010, was a budget-cutting exercise. It was not a statement of the strategic direction the United Kingdom should take and why. Instead, it was an across-the-board reduction in funding, with equal pain being shared by the three armed services and the civilian sector. Most analysts and commentators considered it a missed opportunity to define British defense strategy for the immediate future.
