England is in a terrible position, which is why in times of old it HAD to have such a great army. Unfortuenately we now go by skill instead of numbers, when infact we should keep the skill as high as it is whilst making the numbers higher too.
But actually succesfully invading England, well now that will be a difficult thing indeed.
In a time of need I truly believe almost half of the population would form a resistance, with more joining as time went on... We have more patriotic people than it appears."
Can I just remind everyone that when some people refer to 'England' they actually mean the United kingdom. Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish soldiers are fighting in Iraq and dying for United Kingdom or Great Britain.
...This patriotism you're talking about is a bit hard to come by when England forgets that The United Kingdom is the sum of all its parts and not just England!!
