Britain's wars 'have no strategy’, says top military adviser

Source: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/defence/105...

From The Telegraph

Britain lacks any clear military strategy, “bungled” its involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan and is guilty of “strategic failure” over Syria, a senior adviser to the Armed Forces has said.

David Cameron failed to deliver a British military intervention in Syria because of his “seat of the pants” approach to the issue, according to Prof Sir Hew Strachan.

Sir Hew, one of Britain’s leading military thinkers, has condemned the way in which recent British and American governments have approached the use of military force.

A lack of clear thinking about strategic objectives meant that the costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were mishandled, he said.

Sir Hew, Professor of the History of War at the University of Oxford, has advised the Coalition on its treatment of the Armed Forces. He currently sits on the Chief of the Defence Staff’s Strategic Advisory Panel, and advises the UK Defence Academy, which trains senior officers.
