A Plea to the UK Defence Community

complexity Pure-mathematics-formulæ-blackboard

FFS, can we please stop using the word ‘warfighter

I have noticed an increasing aping of US terminology in UK defence matters, the last time we fell into that hole was was the revolution in military affairs, FRES/FSC network-centric buzzwordtrickery and look where that got us.

Every time I hear or read it I cringe and want to kick the cat.

My favourite so far is

Validation through warfighter engagement

Can we get our own bloody buzzwords please, we are beginning to look like the nerdy kids trying to copy the big boys at the other end of the playground.
