In the coming weeks, we will also need to call out additional reservists in support of these land forces. The details of our overall reservist requirement are continuing to evolve, and I expect to be able to provide further information on this in due course.
No, I think he's saying the he can't give a figure on how many reservists will be needed as they are still working it out. As for what the press are reporting.... well you should know that that could be short, on or well beyond the mark.
My unit is going so I'm too busy to be worried about anyone else at the moment
Hopefully, that'll just be overcome from heat exhaustion,as opposed to dead by any means. Saddam ain't stupid enough to fire chemweps at the coalition.or maybe he thinks it's an empty threat, because any fallout heading down range will affect other Iraqi's, Jordanians, Syrians and of course....
