So, how does this:

20,000 posts go in defence cuts
Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon has announced large cuts in the armed forces as part of modernisation plans.

go sensibly together with this:

Blair draws up plans to send troops to Sudan
. . .
Tony Blair has asked Downing Street and Foreign Office officials to draw up plans for possible military intervention in Sudan, where more than a million refugees are at risk from famine and disease.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all in favour of intervening with all necessary measures to end the suffering. I just think it would be nice of the Government if it gave the armed forces the proper amount of resources they need to take on so many tasks.
