General Sir Richard Shirreff in Russia warning to West
Western Europe would not be able to defend itself against Russia because of the dismantling of military capability, a former Nato supreme commander has warned.
General Sir Richard Shirreff told BBC Newsnight members of the alliance must re-arm to face "any form of Russian adventurism".
He also told the programme that David Cameron made a mistake when he ruled out sending troops into Iraq to fight Islamic State (IS).
