UK Defense Minister's Belligerent Rhetoric Toward Russia, China Absurd - Scholar

The UK should strengthen its global presence and enhance its lethality according to UK Defense Minister Gavin Williamson as he addressed the Royal United Services Institute on Monday.

The cabinet minister unveiled plans to modernize and strengthen the UK armed forces to prepare Britain in the post-Brexit world. Williamson spoke about UK plans to send its new aircraft carrier to the Pacific – where there is currently a territorial dispute in the South China Sea — invest in offensive cyber capabilities and adopt a harder military stance after Brexit. The UK withdrawal from the EU is of course only weeks away as Prime Minister Theresa May tries to strike a last-minute deal with Europe.

There was also another warning to Russia and China as he is to say that Britain must "be ready to show the high price of aggressive behavior" and prepared to "use hard power to support its interests". He emphasized that the lines between peace and war for nations such as Russia and China are becoming increasingly "blurred".
