Britain's Cameron making overtures that suggest war with Syria



by Joseph Earnest  August 27, 2013


Newscast Media LONDON—Britain's armed forces are drawing up contingency plans for military action in Syria, but no decision had been made about what action may be taken, Prime Minister David Cameron's spokesman said Tuesday.
Cameron will decide later on Tuesday whether to recall parliament from its summer recess to debate a possible military intervention in the wake of a chemical weapons attack that Washington, London and Paris believe was carried out by the Syrian government, Downing Street said.
"We are continuing to discuss with our international partners what the right response should be, but, as part of this, we are making contingency plans for the armed forces," Cameron's spokesman said.
The prime minister will continue talks with other world leaders to agree a "proportionate response" to the gas attack near Damascus last Wednesday. "This is about deterring the use of chemical weapons," the British spokesman said.
Cameron has cut short his summer holiday in order to deal with the Syria crisis and is due to chair a meeting of Britain's National Security Council in London on Wednesday.
His spokesman refused to confirm whether lawmakers would be offered a vote on a possible military strike. "We will make an announcement later today about whether or not there will be an early recall to discuss these issues," the spokesman said.
