theres always a british submarine out at sea (nuclear ready) at any moments notice!
as for people saying britain picking up our warheads from the US, okay then but say if that 'son of star wars' project ever comes in the UK, we'll
just say its ours, afterall its now on british land so fcuk off
people are forgeting though, the atom was mainly british invention (tube alloys project) - it was only america who FIRSTLY put it together with help
from many british scientists in the manhattan project.
our govenment at the time classed the atomic bomb as a joint invention but again
the US said "screw you, we are not giving details of the atom
typical america though even to date (f-35 anyone?), never the less after the foreign secretary gave his great speech (1946):-
“We’ve got to have this thing over here whatever it costs and it's got to have the bloody Union Jack on top of it.”
we did our first nuclear test in 1950!
RECENTLY though the last i heard british scientists was ahead of america on a upgrade to the trident (numerous sources).
back to the thread though, "is UK our enemy?" ungreatful *BEEEEPS* someone i know lost his life for americas 'war for oil' program and you say WE
are your enemies!
i wish we was, role on next year when blair is out - britain thoughout its history hasn't been bitch to any country, why start now with a dying
superpower? - bring back the iron lady
