The Great Game

Inter arma enim silent leges. Oh, wait. Sorry, – that isn’t right. We’ve certainly learnt a great deal since Rome fell; nowadays, we prosecute our own soldiers for killing the enemy. Which is presumably why, after twelve years spent trying to conquer the most backwards backwater in the known universe, fighting illiterate peasants armed with 50 year old rifles and home-made explosives, we’re still no closer to victory.

It’s a good job that our blood and treasure are inexhaustible resources, or pouring them out into the sands of Central Asia whilst vainly attempting to convince the liberal media that our armed forces are not the Waffen-SS might turn out to have been a terrible mistake.
