Battle against terrorism:

UK needs global military force

SWITZERLAND: British Defence Secretary Liam Fox said Saturday that Britain’s “battle against terrorism” in Afghanistan was not the end of the global struggle, and the country must be prepared to act elsewhere in future.

Speaking to a meeting of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) think tank, Fox said pulling British troops from Afghanistan before 2015 would boost militants everywhere, because only by then would British forces, working with the US-led coalition, have achieved their security aims.

“We’re going to have a long-term battle against transnational terrorism and it will pop up in a lot of different places over a long period. One of the lessons of recent British defence history was that combat troops should not be deployed unless authorities were willing to give them the resources to carry out their work.
