Modern military planning has always involved developing scenarios and trying to plan the response well in advance. The Sunday Times reveals the latest apopcalyptic tales by UK military planners. In a presentation at a military conference, Rear Admiral Chris Parry, outlined a range of external threats but marries these to an internal one, a process of “reverse colonisation” with European States “undermined by large immigrant groups with little allegiance to their host countries” as “These groups would stay connected to their homelands by the internet and cheap flights. The idea of assimilation was becoming redundant”. A major crisis is predicted for 2012 to 2018.
The doom-laden predictions have interesting ramifications for community cohesion, immigration and national identity policies.
