Missiles For Olympics!
In answer to a question by former Defence Secretary Liam Fox, the new Defence Secretary Philip Hammond has told Parliament that he is prepared to deploy ground-to-air missiles to protect the 2012 Olympic Games in London! That will add a hell of a lot to the Games carbon footprint. And the Yanks want to send 500 FBI agents to protect their team alone (title link). This is insane. Is there time to cancel the damned thing?
