Completely agree w/ Lord Dannatt & hopefully, the CX finds the money for the British Army to increase its capacity, as well as capability. @BorisJohnson @RishiSunak @BWallaceMP

Okay, I mean Russia doesn麓t want to harm England. No invasion like Spain, France or Germany in the past.
You let Dannatt off the hook. The reason why this conflict will be frozen, is that Ukraine is being denied access to weapons that would enable them to win. Standoff missiles and the planes to launch them. The US doesn't want Ukraine to win, due to risk aversion. A moral failure.
