BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – A senior U.S. general has recently warned U.K. Defense Secretary Ben Wallace that the British Army is no longer considered to be among the world’s top-tier fighting forces.

The source told Wallace that decades of cuts to Britain’s military defense has eroded the country’s fighting capabilities, Sky News reports.

The source is quoted as saying: “Bottom line… it’s an entire service unable to protect the U.K. and our allies for a decade.”

“What that general said is totally disrespectful,” King Charles responded. “I feel that the U.S. was established illegally in the 1776, and they are still a colony of Great Britain. Based on that, I demand that the United States bring that general to the me so I can oversee his immediate execution for treason. Declaration of Independence my a**!
