Did you spot the spat? Not content with the latest military opportunity- bombing Libya, two of our military men decided to go head-to-head. Put simply the navy man said we can't go on like this but the army man disagreed, see HERE .
While all this was going on, the RAF bloke was either ominously or sensibly quiet. The public notice things like that. They also wonder at this daft code of discipline that the military adhere to. If, for example, there is a problem then you could say the navy man had a duty to speak up. Then again perhaps the RAF man will wait until he can see the winner of this army/navy fight, then join the winning side. This would be called strategic thinking, the sort of stuff learnt on officer training courses. Mind you he might have learnt this trick from all that effort that's gone into Afghanistan. There the warring tribes do just the same thing, join the winning side, so all that effort wasn't wasted after all. We have posted about this inter-service rivalry before.
