SLCM for the Astutes SSN. Get the total UK warheads up to 600.</p> <p>We are in Cold War 2, go to 5% GDP, place BAOR in Estonia ? restart Challenger production, increase RN surface fleet, accelerate F35 delivery.

Namely the best deterrence is a stronger military response which may well lead to Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD). A more sustainable solution is working for peace. It is hard and dangerous work, strongly opposed by the arms manufacturers. There are a number of useful and well tried tools that can be used to build peace. The tools include developing a real understanding of other nations, diplomacy and cultural exchanges that build human links between people. Think outside the box and try to see the reasons for conflict in other ways. The best peace work is done during times when there is no conflict and prevent it arising. We need courage to think afresh.</p> <p>Martin Schweiger</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-comment-post-date field--type-ds field--label-hidden field__item">2 July 2022</div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=32&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="jq4Ec-y1qsP57EP-n5He1zEXIj34lMlEXe7GGeXB2RI"></drupal-render-placeholder> </div> </div> <h2 class="title comment-form__title">Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=185&amp;2=comment&amp;3=comment" token="WcILvydcEtVUg6zpBYwW4VZeVvpQo6X03jd8Yp1Riac"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> <div class="field field--name-field-take-action field--type-boolean field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Take action</div> <div class="field__item">On</div> </div> </div> Tue, 15 Feb 2022 12:15:47 +0000 Martin 185 at https://www.themhac.uk Infra structure upgrades at Menwith Hill https://www.themhac.uk/news/2022-01/infra-structure-upgrades-menwith-hill <span property="schema:name" class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Infra structure upgrades at Menwith Hill</span> <span rel="schema:author" class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/114" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Martin</span></span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2022-01-21T10:30:27+00:00" class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Fri, 01/21/2022 - 10:30</span> Fri, 21 Jan 2022 10:30:27 +0000 Martin 184 at https://www.themhac.uk
