We are already having to rely on foreign firms for out defence equipment, we have no real aircraft industry in this country that can build an fighter from start to finish without having to import some of it's components from Europe or the US, they were reputedly considering to be shutting down one of the last tank manufacturing factories in this country down. So what is this country supposed to do if we end up in a similar situation to WW2 where Europe is invaded and we start losing aircraft or tanks at a rapid rate of knots?

Naw,

We wouldn't let our brothers across the pond go down... The US has got your back. Give us the Virgin Islands, and we'll give you all the tanks and F-22's you need
