Cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Whatever is going on with Israel, Gaza and Lebanon right now, one thing is clear. Its very dangerous.

One group who are clearly threatened are British forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. If the Shiite forces ranged against Israel right now manage to gain leadership of the Sunni hot heads or a wider war breaks out then British forces are under very direct threat.

I hope something is being done in the Ministry of Defence and that the politicians give the military what they ask for - not talking about not wanting to send out the wrong messages or whatever ( the excuses used not to prepare our forces properly for Gulf War II ).

Given who is the defence secretary and who is prime minister this has to be a real worry.
