New British army chief urges preparations for all-out war with Russia

The new British Army Commander-in-Chief, General Sir Patrick Sanders, gave a chilling speech on Tuesday stressing the need for the UK and NATO to prepare for war against Russia.

Sanders’ keynote address at the annual Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) Land Warfare Conference was broadcast live on Sky News. Among the spectators were Secretary of Defense Ben Wallace, US Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth, German Army Inspector General Alfons Mais and former Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Danylyuk.

Sanders warned Britain was facing a “1937-like situation”. He was referring to Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, who wrote two years before the start of World War II: “There is no reason to keep doing something just because the Army has been doing it that way for 30 or 40 years. If that’s the only reason we’re doing something, then it’s high time we changed it and did something different.”

Sanders explained: “Today, for us, ‘doing something different’ means mobilizing the army to face the new threat: a clear and acute danger that became apparent on February 24, when Russia forcibly seized Ukrainian territory, of a state friendly to the United Kingdom.”

Sanders added: “In all my years in uniform I have never seen such a clear threat to the principles of sovereignty and democracy and the freedom to live without fear of violence as posed by President Putin’s brutal aggression and his expansionist ambitions.” going out.”

This cynical outburst comes from someone who has been complicit in every crime committed by British imperialism over the past three decades. Sanders has commanded operations in Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan. It was an apparent attempt to justify his call for a strengthening of the armed forces for war of aggression. He went on to say that going forward there needs to be “an increased focus on preparedness and combined arms training, and a broader institutional renewal that creates the culture necessary for victory. This process, dubbed Operation MOBILISE, will be the primary focus of the Army for years to come.”

Sanders declared in Orwellian language that the UK must “mobilize to meet today’s threats”, ie wage war to “prevent war in Europe”. That means arming Ukraine to the teeth in the NATO proxy war against Russia.

Sanders boasted: “The Department of Defense has been building a coalition of partners with phenomenal speed to provide materiel, intelligence and training for Ukraine’s fight against the Russian invaders…this year alone we have delivered 9,500 anti-tank missiles, including more than 5,000.” light shoulder supported NLAW. We have already trained 650 Ukrainian soldiers in the UK and in the coming months the British Army will train another 10,000 soldiers to win battles. It has only just begun.”
