Personal - in confidence
French get a debate going through their annual ’Defence University’, with open discussion on
capability etc, bringing in parliament, government, academics, business etc as well as military.
We need to ask when and how do we start to put all this right? Do we have the national capabilities
/ capacities to fix it? If so, how do we improve our harnessing of resources to do it?
We need this debate NOW. There is not a moment to be lost.
