Missiles to protect Olympics?



Worth it?


Quote:
Defence Secretary Philip Hammond has told MPs that ground-to-air missiles will be deployed to protect the 2012 Olympic Games in London if deemed operationally necessary.

He was asked to confirm this by the former defence secretary Liam Fox.

It was Mr Hammond's first appearance at Defence Questions since taking over from Mr Fox.

The comments follow reports of concern in the United States about security plans for the Games.

The Guardian claimed the US was furious about security plans and wanted to send up to 1,000 of its own people, including 500 FBI agents but the Home Office says it has "full confidence" in the plans.



Maybe we should just ban the Americans, eh what old bean?

If the Yanks are in charge of firing the missiles there's likely to be hundreds of innocent civilians killed in ' friendly fire ' incidents ! waggyfinger

In the movies, ground-to-air missiles seem to be wonderfully effective. :D
