National Militaries Becoming Auxiliary Forces

The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the Lord of hosts mustereth the host of the battle (Isaiah 13:4). They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land (13:5).


What’s the definition of auxiliary forces?

Auxiliaries are support personnel that assist the military or police but are organised differently from regular forces. Auxiliary may be military volunteers undertaking support functions or performing certain duties such as garrison troops, usually on a part-time basis.

What are the armed forces for? This is the question that hangs over every defence review, and one that recent governments have been averse to answering.

The problem is this: since the end of the Cold War, the defence has gradually slipped further and further down the political priority list. At the same time, ministers and senior officers have been reluctant to publicly scale back their ambitions for what the military should do.

As a result, instead of making decisive cuts to certain capacities in order to maintain others, we have gradually shrunk all the services to the point where they face serious operational difficulties.

Britain boasts two aircraft carriers, for example, yet lacks the support ships to put two (or perhaps even one) full carrier groups to sea. What use is an aircraft carrier if it can’t be adequately defended? Meanwhile, the army has withered to the point where some analysts question whether the UK has even a single division that is theatre-ready.
