Thoughts from an active pensioner who is now somewhat past his Biblical "Use-by date"

Mali - Update

Earlier today I suggested that our involvement in Mali would not be confined to just two RAF aircraft.
Far sooner than expected, The Telegraph reports that 'Britain is "committed to supporting" a European Union training mission that would put up to 500 European troops into Mali within weeks' and that 'David Cameron said that the growing strength of Islamist groups in Mali could have direct consequences for British national security'.
This is rapidly beginning to look like Afghanistan all over again.
