    North Korea will be able to NUKE London within 20 months, warns former commander of Britain's Joint Forces Command
    General Sir Richard Barrons said cuts have left armed forces 'close to breaking'
    He highlighted the growing threats to the UK to which the forces had no answer
    Sir Richard said that forces were locked in a 'daily confrontation with Russia'
    He warned North Korea could hit the UK with a missile within 18 to 20 months
    He said the Army was '20 years out of date' and lacking an array of technologies

    In 20 months time, it won't be worth the missile.

    The only chance they have of hitting London is if they aim for somewhere else entirely...

    1) They definately got nukes - hydrogen bomb test is impressive, it means they can make smaller warheads now, so far more likely to be able to fit them into missiles

    2) They definately got pretty reliable long range missiles - thanks to Putin

    3) USA would nuke them if they nuke any US territories (with possible exceptions like Puerto Rico), but would US do that if they nuked London?

    I liked her little speech about Russian misinformation affecting the Brexit and US elections. Misinformation 'we know what you're doing' - she said.

    Then I thought to myself, misinformation, would that be like the misinformation about the WMD's Iraq never had whereby hundreds of thousands of people died leading to the destabilisation of the middle east?

    Just who the hell do the British and US government's think they are? Making a dogs breakfast of domestic duties whilst trying to pick fights where they don't exist. Incredible.

These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    It's the peoples nation. About time you got used to that idea.

    Are we capable of nuking them? If they became capable of nuking us in 20 months would that not just create a Mutually Assured Destruction scenario like the one that's been around for several decades between East and West?

    Is it just time to load up on defence/MIV shares as more taxpayers money goes into war spending?
