BAOR/BFG no more?

The Conservatives in the UK want to pull the BAOR/BFG out of Germany

Britain should withdraw its army from Germany so it can take on 'expeditionary roles' elsewhere under a strategic NATO overhaul, the British opposition defence spokesman said in a newspaper interview on Saturday.

Liam Fox told the Daily Telegraph Britain's 25,000-strong military presence on the Rhine 'wasn't necessary' any longer now the security threat once posed by the Soviet regime was over.
