Irony?

Polaris-equipped submarines led to the demise of the V-Force as they can skulk about out of sight.  But in the recent attack on Syria HMS Astute was apparently unable to launch any missiles for fear of revealing its position and aircraft were used instead.

Even more ironic is the raids were carried out by 4 Tornados, which are being phased out next year....
