Eric Zeusse - Britain Officially Prepares Now for War Against Russia

On Wednesday, February 21st, the UK’s Minister of Defence, Conservative Gavin Williamson, announced that the United Kingdom is changing its fundamental defence strategy from one that’s targeted against non-state terrorists (Al Qaeda, etc.), to one that’s targeted instead against three countries: Russia, China, and North Korea. He acknowledged that a massive increase in military spending will be needed for this, and that “savings” will have to be found in other areas of Government-spending, such as the health services, and in military spending against terrorism.

But There's hope, Americans have had enough of out of control defence spending. 

The press in the U.S. and its allied countries (such as UK) might have a difficult time persuading their populations that expanding military expenditures in order to conquer Russia, China, North Korea, and — as U.S. President Trump wants also to include — Iran (but he’ll probably use America’s ally Israel for that part of the operation), could be difficult, because, for example, on the same day, February 22nd, Gallup reported that by a margin of 59% to 37%, Americans disapprove of Trump on the issue of “Relations with Russia,” and back on 23 March 2017, Public Integrity headlined "The public favors cutting defense spending, not adding billions more, new survey finds" and reported:
Strategic Cultures

It doesn't matter what the public wants as evidenced by massive increases in military spending, eternal wars, decimation of social services, etc.

Speaking as a Brit, I'm scared stiff of all those Chinese aircraft carriers hovering around just off the British coast - ho ho.

Not to worry, a few dozen hypersonic missiles will take out the entire fleet.
