Press release: Foreign Secretary concerned at reports of chemical attack in Syria

Ministry of Defence said:
Commenting on reports of a chemical weapons attack in Syria, the Foreign Secretary William Hague said:
I am deeply concerned by reports that hundreds of people, including children, have been killed in airstrikes and a chemical weapons attack on rebel-held areas near Damascus. These reports are uncorroborated and we are urgently seeking more information. But it is clear that if they are verified, it would mark a shocking escalation in the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Those who order the use of chemical weapons, and those who use them, should be in no doubt that we will work in every way we can to hold them to account. I call on the Syrian Government to allow immediate access to the area for the UN team currently investigating previous allegations of chemical weapons use. The UK will be raising this incident at the UN Security Council.

I read somewhere that The US is the worlds biggest arms manufacture, followed in 2nd place by us in the UK, the UK is also the worlds biggest pharmaceutical manufacture. Guns and drugs is what we are good at and just the sort of thing useful to sell in wars

What with?

We don't want to fight
But by Jingo if we do!
We don't have the Men
We don't have the Ships
We don't have the Money too!
They will find the money for a shoestring token effort to back up the septics.

We have a broken NHS, a ****ed Police force, totally raped public services, an overpaid political system and a huge aid budget....... I guarantee the last 2 wont be touched
Isn't it a good job that everybody has been keeping up their NBC, sorry, CBRN skills?
