Entirely predictable. Britain will be invaded the moment a single aircraft is mothballed.

I am sick of this fantasy that Britain is only great because of the big stick it wields in America's name. Germany and Japan have far better economies than we do and very low level militaries. Not just because america occupies them, but also because they do not threaten anyone. Even China has little interest in using its army against anyone other than its own people, crushing their opponents with trade is easier and has fewer issues of unintended consequences.
