British officers could be deployed to Syria to increase pressure on Assad regime

Put the heebi jeebies up the Bosnians and Serbs, didn't it? (Ironic question.)

Oh, you've got to love the Torygraph.
“We need to make the regime feel that their every action is being closely scrutinised and that means observers up and down the country with their eyes and ears to the ground,” said a Downing Street source.
Yes, dammit. A British presence there will stop him.

With a stern look and a scrupulously fair attitude, we'll bring this fellow to heel.

I mean, we can't drop a bomb on the Mukhabarat HQ as who knows what papers could drift out on the wind, eh Mr Straw?

Never mind all of that....you'll get another medal! Woohoooo! And, even better than that....your mums can start whining that nobody cares about you again! You'll be able to moan about pakis, muslims, not getting free this or free that, demanding that people in the street shake your hand and thank you for 'fighting for your country' and everything else that you thought was going to die out soon!!

****ing Ace!!!!!

Do you honestly think we'll drop one bomb on a a government within the Russian sphere of influence?

I doubt we'll even try to supply an kinetic kit ("deniably", of course) to the opposition. Comms of course for democratic groups is apparently going (according to the papers), I douby anything else.

I think we'll sit this one out, shake our little fist and the Syrians will hate us for something else in addition to the Sykes-Picot agreement.

PS-What's your take Arik (if you're still about) Be interested to hear.

Note they said Officers. Sending Ruperts to run something without some seniors to exert a grown up influence is genius. The entire command and control system in the country will be in shredders in no time at all.

Result - conflicts cancelled due to chaos and having all the wrong kit, but there was a lovely Pimms party and a nice mess doo.

I'd do it, I was an officer once and I still have a set of KD which I'm sure the Darzi could let out a bit, mind you the shoulder titles are a little out of date but the Syrians perhaps wouldn't notice, and if I didn't have to walk too far I'd probably be able to keep an eye on things and I can still read a map so I probably wouldn't get any accompanying diplomats lost.

I'm sorry Sir, but did you learn to map read after leaving the Army? =-D

Fucks sake, just let them get on with it. If they want to kill each other great, let them crack on. A few arabs less in the world would not be a bad thing. Getting rid of Assad is just going to increase extreme islam to gain more footholds as it has in Egypt, Libya etc. We do not need to get involved in their shite.

I'm sure the innocent men, women and children would agree.

If they weren't dead.

Never but NEVER leave an officer alone with a map, he will just lead you into trouble
