Ben Wallace said the prospect of the US stepping back from its international leadership role under Donald Trump "keeps me awake at night".
It may force the UK to rethink its assumptions about defence, he added.
His comments come as the UK prepares to carry out the "deepest review" of Britain's security, defence and foreign policy since the end of the Cold War.
"I worry if the United States withdraws from its leadership around the world," Mr Wallace told the Sunday Times. "That would be bad for the world and bad for us. We plan for the worst and hope for the best."

Bout time.

A woman or man in uniform is an employed citizen. This is good. overall.

It is about time the EU and NATO steps up and adds to the security of the world. We have been carrying them for a long long. Will it happen? Only under Trump.

When we do act as the worlds police force we get criticized, just wait and see what happens if we stop!

The question needs to be, "Who do YOU want to be the world's policeman. Who do YOU want patrolling the high seas? China? Russia? India? Who?"

WHOEVER TAKES ON THE TASK SHOULD BE COMPENSATED BY THOSE IT BENEFITS.

i have always been a bit of an isolationist.........

i also think that if we get involved, we go full bore.....not some sort of half-way pc crap with limitations.......we will never win the hearts and the minds of the middle east..............if they hate us, do not respect us, then they need to fear us and our wrath.......i am talking Old Testament warfare.....they do not come back in a decade or two....if ever...
