    Seems Cameron wants the UK to again engage in Blair-style interventionism.

    Poor old Britain,
    They try to help around the world, giving aid and medicine plus billions and billions to underdeveloped and starving countries, and what thanks do they get,
    From the poor a great big thank you,
    And from a bunch of ungrateful undeserving argies, they get slagged off,
    And what exactly has Argentina given to these poor counties,
    But we don’t care when you guys think,
    We do what we think is right, and if giving billions in aid to the poor, means that you silly lot laugh at us,
    Then i feel really sad for you,
    But then that’s the difference between the BRITISH generosities,
    And argentines inability to understand the meaning, of kindness,
    [Still] some people in this world will never grow up.
    That’s an opinion worth saying, don’t you think,

    No, what the UK Government is attempting is Joined Up Thinking.

    So often the Defense arm of government tools-up during the previous decade or so to fight 'the wrong kind of war'.

    Hague 's Building Stability Overseas Strategy (BSOS) strategy, developed by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), Department for International Development (DFID) and Ministry of Defence (MOD), will protect existing assets, support existing trade partners, and aid the Aid for poor countries programme in an integrated and planned manner. Good government.

    “Early Warning; Rapid Crisis Prevention and Response; Investing in Upstream Prevention”: somebody is thinking with his head rather than his balls - such a change from the Blair government.

    It is self-evident that this Message and its emplacement is the total protection package needed by the British Protectorates and Territories.
