I've long been fascinated by my Scottish heritage and the continual yearning for a Scottish nation. I'm a bit of an Anglophile as well...so I'm not yet sure where I stand on the 2014 Referendum on Independence, though I probably lean towards a Yes vote.
The Royal United Services Institute recently published an article tackling what is probably the stickiest of issues surrounding a possible Yes vote...that of a defense capability and apparatus independent of Britain. Quite a good [though Union-biased] read, since as the author succinctly states: "Having independent Armed Forces is at the heart of what it means to be a sovereign country".
