Defence chiefs to reverse cuts to meet Syria's chemical weapons threat


Monday 17 June 2013

"Britain is preparing to reinstate specialist military units capable of securing Syria's chemical weapons axed in the spending review two years ago, in response to President Barack Obama's decision to intervene in the conflict.

Defence chiefs have ordered an urgent rethink of the cuts, which were designed to save £129 million a year from 2011, to ensure that Britain can join any US-led coalition force deployed to prevent Syria's stockpiles falling into terrorist hands.

Sources told The Daily Telegraph that the Ministry of Defence is expected to decide as early as this week that mothballed equipment could brought back into service and more personnel assigned to the specialist role. The expanded regimental role could be declared operational before the end of September, the source said.

"The MoD has been engaged in a very rapid re-think of what Britain is able to do in Syria, and concluded that the lack of a capability would largely prevent active participation in a US ground incursion, or even a post-conflict offer to sort out chemical weapons sites that are vulnerable to terrorists' looting," the source said."
