You can say all you want about the remote machines we see appearing on the military inventories today howeve IF OUR BOYS HAVE TO FIGHT A MAJOR WAR against a power which has more resources than us I would like to think we had access to equipments that would enable us to destroy the nemy in large numbers which would give us a chance.

Alright Brian, Comparing the Project Taranis with the Fieseler Fi 103 (Vergeltungswaffen 1) is like comparing a wooden club to an assult rifle. You may not have noticed but targeting & control have improved over the last 65 years.
† Your reasons for Britain declaring war in 1939 is rather simplistic, it had more to do with continental trade than the invasion of Poland, other wise if it was just territorial why didnít we declare war on the USSR who also invaded Poland? It also seems to have escaped your attention that the UN authorised the Afghan war in 1991, all the troops fighting out there do so under UN mandate 1386 which is updated yearly.
† I find it strange that your two grandsons donít know what they are fighting for, my Nephew who is currently serving with the RN (FAA) has served out there & not only was he fully briefed on the situation but agrees with the war aims.
