Navy ready to launch first strike on Syria

Britain is planning to join forces with America and launch military action against Syria within days in response to the gas attack believed to have been carried out by President Bashar al-Assad’s forces against his own people.

Royal Navy vessels are being readied to take part in a possible series of cruise missile strikes, alongside the United States, as military commanders finalise a list of potential targets.

Government sources said talks between the Prime Minister and international leaders, including Barack Obama, would continue, but that any military action that was agreed could begin within the next week.

As the preparations gathered pace, William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, warned that the world could not stand by and allow the Assad regime to use chemical weapons against the Syrian people “with impunity”.

    If the whistleblowers have hard 911 info that will put the brakes on this war on terror nonsense, NOW is the time to produce or forever hold their peace about the lesser things they can reveal. Pinning 911 as an inside job done by US/Israel/UK will cause the worlds’ people to rise up like a swarm of bees & say ENOUGH, you are no longer in charge.

    That headline is hilarious. Russia won’t fight in Syria! The Russian foreign minister has already declared it.

    Russia has not the resources to fight a conventional war – period! Russia won’t go for the nuclear option until – and even then I doubt it – it will be attacked.

    Who are these liars talking about when they say the world will respond? Most of the world is against these wars and most people in the world know that the war-mongers are the axis of evil, US, UK, Israel.
