As other European allies have dialed back military spending, Britain has been America’s most reliable and capable security partner. But the British defense cuts announced Tuesday will affect Britain’s ‘long-term ability to fight alongside the US.’

The British government’s announcement this week of a review that calls for the biggest cuts in British defense spending since the end of the cold war is raising questions about Britain’s ability to remain a global security player in coming years.”
