The Sunday Quote No. 122

The Sunday Quote - 7 August 05

''All the businesses of war, and indeed all the business of life, is to endeavour to find out what you don't know by what you do; that is what I call ''guessing what was the other side of the hill''.

Duke of Wellington 1769-1852

Today's quote is used by Dr Richard North in the introduction to his recently published Defence Paper titled ''The Wrong Side of the Hill.''

Dr North's paper provides a detailed background to one of the most significant, yet largely unreported political developments of recent years: The moves being made by the United Kingdom to integrate its armed forces with those of the European Union and capable of acting independently of Nato.

Copies of Dr North's paper are available in Acrobat format direct from my self, please email me on
