Dont know if this is true but if it is, then its getting more serious by the moment not by the day!

BRITAIN must invest in its fleet of main battle tanks to meet an increasing threat of ground war with Russia, senior Army officers have warned.It comes as tensions between Nato countries and Moscow continued to mount, with Russia threatening “nuclear counter measures” over a plan to bolster nuclear facilities in Germany.

David Cameron is currently trying to find a “compromise deal” with Russian president Vladimir Putin over tackling the IS terror group in Syria.

But Russian aggression in Eastern Europe, an increase in Nato air-space incursions by Russian bombers, and the development of a new Russian “super tank” has led senior commanders to admit that the prospects of a conventional ground war In Eastern Europe can no longer be ignored.

The British Army has 227 Challenger 2 main battle tanks but, while they are still respected, they are in urgent need of upgrade.

Last year the British Army took part in live-fire Nato exercise in Poland with more than 100 armoured vehicles. Operation Black Eagle “highlighted the British Army’s ability to deploy an armoured battlegroup at short notice anywhere in the world in support of the nation’s allies.

Yea, the praise of Russia and extremists is astounding on this message board. I #en hate them both, I see them both as enemy's of the west, and I also understand that we don't not have a strong intellectual western leader, nor are the elections going to provide one. How unfortunate this is, men like me, fathers, brothers, husbands, and sons, will have to die because of the mistakes made now. I have a pacemaker thank you OIF i will defend the west, we are making huge strategic failures daily at the behest of our long time enemy's.

I am thinking its due to the Taliban surge, but there have been reports of ISIL getting nuclear materials as well.

Guess there couldn't be a faster way to get ISIS and the Taliban working together other than an invasion...

I am guessing that could be what is already happening in some form or another.

We may see a new anti US group form out of this whole mess, as if we needed another one. . . .
