    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.

    If Obama backed up his words earlier, those lives wouldn't have been lost.

    List of active Royal Navy ships

    In total there are 78 commissioned ships in the navy. 18 of the commissioned vessels are major surface combatants (5 guided missile destroyers and 13 frigates) and 11 are nuclear-powered submarines (4 ballistic missile submarines and 7 fleet submarines). In addition the Navy possesses an aircraft carrier (though without fixed-wing aircraft), an amphibious assault ship, two amphibious transport docks, 15 mine countermeasures vessels, 24 patrol vessels, 4 survey vessels and two historic warships (Victory and Bristol). The total displacement of the Royal Navy is approximately 340,000 tonnes (or 775,000 tonnes including the Royal Fleet Auxiliary and Royal Marines).

    This is what I have been waiting for with this situation. NATO, not just a few members should get involved in this situation.

    "Barack Obama is unlikely to have much trouble mustering a Nato coalition of the willing if Washington opts for military intervention in Syria in response to the alleged chemical weapons atrocities by the Assad regime...

    Turkey, which accounts for Nato's second largest army after the US, and which is on the frontline with Syria, bearing the brunt of the massive refugee crisis, is already a key conduit for arms supplies to, and a safe haven for, the sundry groups of fighters at war with Damascus.

    It has been the loudest critic of the Assad regime, clamouring for the west to do more. In any international coalition Turkey would be likely to play a key role – with a potential impact on the country's own ethnic balance, especially the relations between the Sunni Muslim majority and the sizeable Alevi minority concentrated in the south near the Syrian border.

    Britain and France, the EU's only military powers with the capacity and will to project military muscle abroad, look certain to line up with the US."

    Why get involved in another war?

    Haven't we learned anything from Iraq?

    We take down Assad and we're indirectly assisting Al Qaeda. We should stay the fuck out instead of saying "oops" five years later.

    I don't think they're gonna fire a cruise missile that costs a couple million into an open field like the Palestinians do.

    This is another loser of a war and we are ready to jump in.

    We don't seem to learn, do we?

    Do we support the reigning power or the Muslim extremist who want to kill us?

    French navy is slightly bigger than British navy. Syria is looking at a serious threat if it has to face combined Anglo-French navy.
