So we really will get one or two aircraft carriers one day. Aircraft won't actually be able to use them, but at least it's a start. We haven't many men to man them, but past over-recruitment (and promotion) of sailoresses will fix that. They just have to scream loudly enough when they spot the enemy and RAF Spitfires will fly out to save them.
Still, at least it would please the Guardian if more moslems were to join the Territorials, which will be expanding its recruiting efforts soon to make up for the loss of professional soldiers. The new intake would get paid for playing paintball-like games at weekends, and wouldn't even be required to fight.
Because although they could have been court-martialled for refusing to go to Iraq, moslem TA members were let off desertion charges because of their religion. It's probably just as well that they didn't go, or there could have been even more friendly fire than there was, by no means all of it coming from American positions.
